Kaya FM and Bassline Live Presents Tortured Soul
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 accompaniment.
For 2006’s Introducing Tortured Soul, the band combined their earlier singles with a few new studio additions and legendary tastemaker Gilles Petersen dubbed the band “the future of house music.” The follow-up album, 2009’s Did You Miss Me, released on the band’s own label, TSTC Records, ushered in a new wave of critical acclaim from music publications like Blues and Soul, SoulBounce, and SoulTracks who described the album as “one immaculate danceable tune after another.”
With a new album, Hot For Your Love Tonight, burning up dance floors with songs like the heartfelt 'I’ll Be There For You', the Deep House-flavored 'Don’t Lead Me On' and the seductively catchy album title cut sandwiched among some Tortured Soul recent stunners including the hot-under-the-collar 'Dirty' and the beautiful Disco groove 'Can't Keep Rhythm. From A Dancer' Tortured Soul shows no signs of stopping. The future is now.
Tortured Soul will make you move. Tortured Soul will make you work. Tortured Soul will make you Fall In Love.
