The Teskey Brothers share their 10 favorite albums of 2018
The Teskey Brothers are a rare musical gem. Honouring that old school Motown sound and working it into something of their very own, the band have received widespread acclaim for their gorgeous debut album "Half Mile Harvest" (Songpickr's Album of the Year 2017). A raw combination of Soul and Blues, the record has warmed the hearts of listeners everywhere with it’s melancholic, analogue tones.
Written by all four band members, the album was recorded in their own home studio, self-produced and released independently. Listening to the record you’d be forgiven for thinking it was the work of Stax Records alumni in Memphis circa ‘67 rather than a group of twenty-somethings from the Yarra Valley just outside Melbourne. The feeling is as old as the tape machine it was recorded on and it’s a true expression of love.
Onstage singer Josh Teskey’s smoked whiskey voice defies expectation as the band around him hold an irresistible groove. Their undeniable live show has wowed audiences around the world, leaving them infected with soul and blues.
End of January 2019, the band will play their first couple of shows in Germany incl. a show at Privatclub Berlin on January 30th.
