Reed TurnerSide One: See How Far I Get
Tumbling from Austin to Boston, Nashville, Tenn., to Portland, Ore., Reed Turner's absorbed lots of influences. This six-song EP, fashioned after one side of a vinyl LP, is the perfect length to expose his multifaceted songwriting. Roots-rock-based, there are echoes of the Avett Brothers and some Red Dirt country, but set-closing meditation "Acrobats & Soldiers" marks Turner as a blossoming Texas troubadour.
