The Teskey Brothers’ debut album Half Mile Harvest honours an old school Motown sound while working it into something of their very own. Recorded all live to tape, the record is a warm experience of blues guitars, irresistible grooves and soulful melodies. Lead singer Josh Teskey’s smoked whiskey vocal tone is so legit you’d be forgiven for assuming he was Stax Records alumni in Memphis circa ‘67 rather than a twenty-something from the Yarra Valley just outside Melbourne. The record debuted in the top 20 chart in Australia and many around the world have sung its praises since.Half Mile Harvest has been over 10 years in the making. The Teskey Brothers have been playing together since they were teenagers, and this new album is a collection of their shared experiences over the past decade. It was recorded last year and has been described as a “love letter to classic blues”*.Originally from The Yarra Valley just outside Melbourne, Brothers Josh and Sam Teskey with local neighbourhood friends, Brendon Love and Liam Gough all share a love of 1960's American soul music. Listening to their album in 2018, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was the work of Stax Records alumni in Memphis circa 1967. Half Mile Harvest was recorded to 2-inch tape and honours the old school Motown sound, whilst also working it into something of their very own, with Josh Teskey’s smoked whiskey voice and the band holding an irresistible groove.
