TURK Tresize emerged in the mu-
sic scene with his debut album Soul
Casino in 2013.
Turk enlisted Andrija Tokic (Ala-
bama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff
Raff, Benjamin Booker) at The
Bomb Shelter in Nashville, TN to
record and produce the album.
Soul Casino incorporated a cast
of an exceptionally talented group
of artists, most notably, Brittany
Howard (Alabama Shakes) as a
The successful and globally well
received outcome of Soul Casino
led to Tresize and Tokic teaming up
again for the making of Turk’s sec-
ond album ‘If It Is to Be’.
Tokic provided the “raw” and
“gritty” sound that best represents
Turk’s artistry by capturing the au-
dio to two-inch reel-to-reel tape.
‘If It Is to Be’ was tracked at vari-
ous studios throughout Australia
and the United States.
The album contains engagement
of work from more A-list session
The album highlights perfor-
mances by Micah Hulscher (Em-
mylou Harris), Bob Hatter (Randy
Houser, Keith Anderson), William
Ellis (Montgomery Gentry, Hunter
Hays, Travis Tritt) and John Henry
Trinko (Jamey Johnson, Randy
Houser) amongst others.
If It Is to Be is a record that incor-
porates multiple genres into each of
The album’s influences draw from
multiple decades of the world’s best
rock musicology while maintaining
a sound of its own ‘Pure Turk’.
Tresize challenges modern rock
by incorporating genuine storytell-
ing into his songs.
Critics have compared Tresize to
bands ranging from Tom Petty and
Pink Floyd to Lenny Kravitz and
The Rolling Stones.
The genre-bending album com-
bines classic rock, modern rock,
folk, and blues all into one timeless
piece of work.
“Australian born and raised Turk
Tresize is a fresh and down-to-
earth artist who crosses genre lines
and barriers to create music that
is powerfully refreshing, bringing
bright and diverse flavours to the
blues-rock scene, embracing south-
ern rock and country as well as his
blues rock inspiration,” says Jill
Jacobs of Blues Rock Review.
Upon the release of If It Is to Be,
Turk’s band is touring the United
States and Australia.
