“Ottoman Turks (from the album Ottoman Turks II available on State Fair Records)
Born in Dallas, Texas, Ottoman Turks was a labor of love for its band members as they dedicated themselves to other projects in their collective paths. High school friends who shared a love of deep, meaningful music, thought-provoking and incendiary, captured within the confines of a raucous Rock’n’Roll song. The core of Ottoman Turks, Nathan Mongol Wells (vocals, rhythm guitar), Billy Law (bass, vocals), and Paul Hinojo (drums) found themselves without a lead guitar, asking Billy’s childhood friend to sit in for a single show. The friend, Joshua Ray Walker, stayed on-stage becoming a full-time member for Ottoman Turks and filling out the quartet.”
