.................................................. .................................................. ................
.................................................. .............................







with openers The Spy from Cairo (live) & DJ Rustam Ospanoff


?The future of house music?you have to see them live.? - Gilles
Peterson, BBC Radio 1, UK

?Imagine your favorite house DJ as a live band, making deep house
music as danceable as a classic groove, and you?ll get a sense of what
a Tortured Soul set is like.? - San Francisco Chronicle

Tortured Soul is 100% LIVE modern, deep, soulful, house music freed
from the DJ Booth. Influenced by the classic songcraft of Prince,
Heatwave 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 songwriter,
John-Christian Urich, can be seen simultaneously drumming and singing
with effortless mastery, while bassist Jordan Scannella, and
keyboardist Isamu McGregor virtuosically generate the pulsating rhythm
and melodic joy.

Likened to The Roots of house music, Tortured Soul?s sound is
reminiscent of neo-soul groups like Jamiroquai or Brand New Heavies,
while also being deeply saturated in the contemporary freshness of
house purveyors like Joey Negro, Kenny Dope, Soul Clap and Disclosure.

Tortured Soul has performed North American sell out shows in : NYC,
LA, Atlanta, Detroit, Tampa, Miami, Portland, San Francisco,
Milwaukee, Chicago, Washington DC, Boston, Montreal, and Toronto.
