He was a gentle gentleman, a polished performer at the piano with a baritone voice which captured the hearts of Society beauties like Lady Diana Cooper, film star Tallulah Bankhead and Dame Barbara Cartland, and his male fans included the Prince of Wales. He was Turner Layton. Turner moved to New York with his family, where he met lyricist, Henry Creamer, who was to be his songwriting partner. With him he wrote AFTER YOU’VE GONE in 1918 , first made popular by Sophie Tucker. Her record was a million-seller. They also collaborated on WAY DOWN YONDER IN NEW ORLEANS and DEAR OLD SOUTHLAND. Layton and Creamer contributed songs to many Broadway shows. Turner then formed a cabaret act with Clarence Johnstone in 1922 which sold over ten million records. While performing in Palm Beach,Florida, they were heard by Lord and Lady Mountbatten who suggested that they bring their act to Britain, which they did in 1924. All went well in London. Layton and Johnstone made over one thousand recordings. During World War II he entertained the troops and ran the gauntlet of bombs to reach Variety theatres and BBC radio broadcasts. In the 1950s he garnered new enthusiasts by appearing on television and was still popular in Variety theatres. In the 1960s he had his own BBC radio show. Turner Layton died in London on February 6th 1978.
