Artist: Phil Turk Band

CD: You and I are Brave

Genera: Folk, Singer-Songwriter  

 

 

 

Phil Turk lives in beautiful Fort Collins, Colorado where he is a professor of Statistics at Colorado State University. The CD takes the listener on a lyrical journey through the beauty and joy of life, along with some of its inevitable difficulties, interwoven through a tapestry of pop and rock influenced by the singer-songwriter genre.  Turk will be promoting "You and I are Brave" for the remainder of this year, playing live in Fort Collins and the Denver metropolitan area.  Concurrently, he plans on forming a band and has begun writing material for a second CD. The CD lifts off the ground nicely with Track 1, “True Happiness Under the Autumn Leaves” a heartfelt flowing intro that serves up an earthy guitar-driven groove, well placed strings, meshed against inviting Pedal Steel accents. This leads you directly into Track 2: All There is To Say” a striking ballad with thought provoking lyrical content meshed against soulful melody that gets things off the ground masterfully and methodically. Track 3, “Blush” shifts gears a bit with a steady flowing rhythm and well placed Americana-Folk ambience painted against impressive Piano, painted against a grand slam chorus. Track 4, “Waiting for Morning” is another impressive ditty that dishes full tilt rhythm section, impressive guitar licks that flows and ebbs its way through to motional fruition. The CD makes a strong first impression, dashing out 4 very solid songs in a row. The musicianship involved is above the bar. I would classify this music as classic Folk, Singer/Songwriter. Pop/Americana, with brief touches of Rock. Read Review
