"The rootsy rendition of "America the Beautiful" arguably could be considered the definitive acoustic version" -- Janet Goodman, Music News Nashville

"American Masterpiece" -- Catherine Michaels, Night Rhythms DJ on 100

"Deft" - Roll Magazine

"Authentic...Sublime..." -- The TMR Zoo

Matt Turk is a veteran performer who has engaged audiences around the world, both as a hard-rocking bandleader and an acoustic folk troubadour. Matt's new recording American Preservation, highlights the latter, as well as showcasing his growing reputation as a stellar re-interpreter of classic tunes. The new record is a collection of traditional standards and well-loved classics, produced by David Dobkin and Dan Pinnella. Recorded live at Matter Music in Burbank California, American Preservation is further evidence of Turk's true musical craftsmanship. With an inspired track list ranging from Roy Acuff to Pink Floyd, and from Taj Mahal to T. Rex, Turk's singing is both confident and relaxed, his mandolin, lap steel, and guitar playing crisp and rollicking. Turk's stellar band includes drummer Dean Butterworth bassist Chris Wagner, Chris Joyner on piano and Wurlitzer, vocalist Gaby Moreno, fiddler Gary Star, saxophonist Tracy Wannamae , Jack Rudy on harmonica and Dan Pinnella on guitars, pedal steel, dobro and slide.

American Preservation reached #20 on the folk/dj chart during the summer of 2010 getting spins in more than 30 US States, Germany, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. All tracks from the recording were played and "I'll Follow the Sun" reached #25 as a single.
