Turn It Loose
The Surefire Way's intriguing style is built on top of a rock platform but blends influences ranging from folk, funk, blues, soul, jazz, and even a little country. Imagine what would happen if you took the members of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Guster, and The Police, and told them to write and play music. The catchy vocals and guitar riffs, combined with energetic bass lines and explosive percussion speak for themselves. Their newest recording, entitled Turn It Loose, has definitely evolved from their first disc, Ask Me For More. Where Ask Me For More focused on melodic grooves and jam band harmonies, Turn It Loose turns up the heat a notch with a higher energy and more serious tone. Part of this has to do with bassist, Vinnie Fiorillo, and lead guitarist, Rob Adelman, joining original band members Scott Tworek (lead vocals, guitar) and Dan Weiss (drums). New band members bring new musical influences. In Turn It Loose you will hear a marked addition of rock guitar riffs and solos, as well as blues and funk-oriented bass lines. Combine that with the folk and jazz influences already present and The Surefire Way definitely is 'the mutt that is rock 'n roll'.
