Love keeps him in Switzerland
It’s not just music that keeps the Australian in Switzerland, but also his wife Maria. They have been married for over thirty years. They are not only a good team on a private level, the couple also work together. So Maria has been working as her husband’s manager over the years.
Of his record productions, 5 are gold-plated and 2 even platinum. He set himself his own monument in 1995 with the musical “ Jeff, The Western Musical Show”. Until the end, Jeff Turner is always on stage at his Christmas shows.
