Like listening to songs that make you want to get in a car and drive - sometimes fast, sometimes slow, and sometimes, stop altogether to hold back the tears. Ottoman Turks is a Texas four-piece, formed in 2010 and has been steadily rising in Dallas’ formidable music scene as of late. The Turks have played to a variety of crowds in all manner of venues big and small, and their focus on providing entertaining, interactive shows always leaves spectators satisfied and wanting more. They have performed number of venues around DFW, in the Bryan/College Station area, and elsewhere around Texas wherever their music takes them.
The Turks are also known to use their signature "outlaw country garage rock" sound - a mixture of rough and rowdy blues, fast train songs and sad country ballads - to craft the perfect backdrop for other artists of many genres (including, over time and at various venues, 10piece Elvis tributes, hardcore emo shows, Austin rockabilly punk groups, and indie folk duos). Among others, they have been selected to open for Matt the Cat Trio the rockabilly group fronted by Eleven Hundred Springs’ lead Matt Hillyer, touring modern folk outfit the O’s, and performed at festivals alongside Ray Wylie Hubbard, Two Tons of Steel, and others. Their EP was recorded at Denton’s Redwood Studio (Sarah Jaffe, Wayne Hancock).
