Tortured Soul is 100% live modern, deep, soulful, house music freed from the DJ booth and now boasting a catalog including six tracks with over one million streams each. Tortured Soul is a collective of incredible international musicians united under a groove-centred rhythm. Frontman and songwriter, John-Christian Urich, leads the group while simultaneously drumming and singing with effortless mastery.
Likened to “The Roots of House Music”, Tortured Soul’s sound is reminiscent of Neo-Soul groups like Jamiroquai or The Brand New Heavies, while also being influenced by the contemporary freshness of house purveyors like Dave Lee and Louie Vega, as well as Nu Disco artists like Soul Clap and Purple Disco Machine.
Tortured Soul’s latest project, the 20th Anniversary Album, is a curated mix of fan favourites and unreleased gems to celebrate 20 years of house hits. With remixes from the vault sprinkled amongst the classics the band has become known for, the 20th Anniversary Album is for old and new fans alike. The album features five tracks/mixes that have never been released, including two live recordings from the band’s 2020 performance at Little Big Beat Studios in Liechtenstein.
