Written by Australian singer/songwriter Turk Tresize and produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Bomb Shelter Nashville) and himself, the Miles ‘n’ Miles EP boasts a soundscape that is southern rock-based with elements of rock, roots rock, blues, alternative country, and Americana tossed in for good measure. Here listeners are exposed to the whiskey-soaked vocals of Tresize while encountering his keen ear for composition as well. Those pleasantly raspy vocals complement organic arrangements that tell honest stories, buoyed by sparse production that lends the tracks even more authenticity. And even though Turk Tresize cites a plethora of musical and songwriting influences, ranging from Chris Cornell to Hank Williams, Jr., he avoids being pigeonholed; creating a sound that is pure ‘Turk.’
The title track is a great listen, eclectic percussion meeting acoustic guitar before Turk takes up the vocals, drawing strength from a small chorus of voices as well. It’s a deceptively simple sounding song that belies the artist’s strengths. Another highlight to be found on the EP is the driving “West On Train,” featuring guest-backing vocals from none other than the lead singer of the Alabama Shakes, Brittany Howard. Howard’s presesnce buoys Tresize’s growling chorus as a rocking guitars rage through the track, accented by bold kick and snare drums. It’s a great song that gives a warm look into this promising artist’s future.
And that future is a bright one, finding the artist harness his love for music and its ability to lift, heal, calm, and electrify, much like a vibrant gospel choir.
