From the US to the UK, Teak is synonymous with real rock & roll. “Still, despite the band’s international recognition, they still remain quaintly surprised to hear others listening to their music. While Teak has garnered comparisons to other bands, they pride themselves in being original. "We don’t want to sound like every other band or the latest fashion,” Draper said. “We just have the rule that if we really dig it, then we do it." This attitude toward originality has lead to high-energy live performances that need little in the way of spectacle.
“I want the musicianship to shine, not the gadgets,” Draper said. “We work very hard at having a tight, energetic and powerful sound that sounds better than the record." That sound will be heard soon at venues all across Australia, and possibly locations abroad should enough fans demand it. In the meantime, look for Teak’s self-titled album available now on iTunes, CD Baby and more! Read more on Last.fm.
