Mark-Anthony Turnage (born June 10, 1960 in Corringham, Essex) is an English composer of classical music. He has also been strongly influenced by jazz, and by Miles Davis in particular. Turnage's music has a characteristic personal style, with strong rhythmic thrust, involved jazz harmonies, colourful orchestration with prominent use of percussion, and hints of various orchestrational sounds from Duke Ellington to 1970s TV detective series theme tunes. He enjoys the reputation of being one of the few modern classical composers who can write 'proper modern jazz'.

MCS have come a long way since the first acoustic guitar jam between Ian and Will February 2008; the band has grown and subsequently shrunk and has now settled in its current arrangement. The line up of MCS came about as the paths of Will (Lead Vocals/Guitar/Piano), James (Bass) and Ian (Drums) crossed through employment and the ashes of previous musical endeavours. Motor City Shuffle exists to perform a rawkus brand of Melodic Indie Pop that would fill any Indie Club Night Dance Floor. We are currently in the Studio (Rock Rooms - Oxford) recording our debut EP.
