Tortured Soul

Before DJs evolved into global superstars, musicians carried the baton. The Brooklyn-based dance trioTortured Soul isn’t trying to intently rewrite the logic of today’s EDM with the sweat of their own musicianship, but they are living proof that the very same music can be freed from the DJ booth. Influenced by the classic songcraft of PrinceHeatwave and Kool & The Gang, the members of Tortured Soul are three distinctive guys with three different backgrounds, united under a groove-centered rhythm. The band’s frontman and principal songwriter, John-Christian Urich, can be seen simultaneously drumming and singing with effortless mastery, while the rest of the collective, made up of keyboardist Ethan White and bassist Jordan Scannella, virtuosically generate the pulsating accompaniment. It’s a striking visual that’s feverously winning converts with each and every tour stop, with them being likened to The Roots of house music. Inside the group’s mystique, the acid jazz is reminiscent of Jamiroquai funk, while deeply saturated in the contemporary freshness of house purveyors like Joey NegroKenny DopeSoul Clap and Jamie Jones. Even the legendary tastemaker Gilles Peterson, dubbed them “the future of house music.”

In 2013, now a decade strong with a new EP in the works, a flirtatious lead single (“Dirty”) and a new album on the horizon, the band is prepared to take Gilles Peterson’s aforementioned prophecy to task. Topping things off, their commitment to hard work and travel has been left unfazed. They are focused to reach as many converts as possible – one tortured soul at a time.
