After four albums fronting his blues-rock trio, Reed Turchi releases his solo debut, Speaking in Shadows, March 4th 2016 on Devil Down Records. Revealing musical and songwriting influences ranging from Randy Newman and JJ Cale to Beck, T Rex, and Tinariwen, Turchi steps out from behind the gruff fuzz into a multi-faceted sound built on finely crafted songs and ear- & rear-moving grooves. Featuring an all-star group of musicians, including drummer Paul Taylor and saxophonist Art Edmaiston (Gregg Allman Band), Andrew Trube and Anthony Farrell (Greyhounds), and renowned Italian guitarist Adriano Viterbini, Speaking in Shadows is built on a foundation of Memphis groove and fat-back rhythm. Fresh textures abound, from the carnival of sounds on tongue-in-cheek “Drawn and Quartered” to the heartbreaking vocals of Heather Moulder on the spare, haunting lead track “Pass Me Over.” As a songwriter, Turchi confidently mines the classic blues/rock vein in "Offamymind" ("Well I can barely walk, so I guess I oughta/ Get behind this wheel and drive”), effortlessly shifts gears to the satirical "Everybody's Waiting (for the end to come)," and turns introspective in "Looking Up Past Midnight." Reuniting with engineer Adam Hill (Big Star, Dirty Streets, White Stripes), recording direct to tape at Ardent Studio, Turchi strikes out for new territory with co-production by Billy Bennett (MGMT, The Whigs, Los Colognes). Mastered by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Natural Child, Langhorne Slim) at Bombshelter Studios in East Nashville, with artwork and design from Charles Ritchie (www.charlesritchie.com)
