‘Face the Music, from Queensland native and Melbourne resident Liam Turner, is a laid back cool breeze that manages to meld a jazzy, louche air with an indie sensibility.
Turner’s musical proficiency is clear with the intricate guitar chords and pacing, but above all he has a voice that delightfully croons and swoops – soft and relaxing yet imbued with a gravelly sub-texture that gives it distinction and style.
This is a pure and satisfying song writing infused with an air of longing and regret:
I have a sense that Turner has a strong career ahead – mixing a melodic strength and songwriting craft with an undeniable charismatic presence. You can download/stream ‘Face the Music’ here.
