Tortured Soul, Scott K, DJ Kerry, Adam Auburn, Zach Hill
Comprised of three members, Tortured Soul was originally conceived in May 2001 by drummer, singer, and songwriter John-Christian Urich. Each of the three members of Tortured Soul is a skilled musician, songwriter, and producer in his own right, combining over 30 years of musical experience. Urich, reared on classic disco and soul, has worked with such producers as Reggie Lucas (Madonna, Stephanie Mills) and Roger Sanchez. He's also known in the world of house and R&B as founder and leader of the band Cooly's Hot Box, whose acid jazz classic "Don't Throw My Love Around" was featured on the first Giant Step compilation on Polygram's London/Payday Records, and was sampled as the hook for Armand Van Helden's mega-hit "Funk Phenomena."
JKriv also produces music as The Moves, a soulful house project with two EP's to date on Central Park Recordings, and the disco-tech group bgb, a mainstay on Steve Bug's German deep-house imprint Dessous Recordings.
White rounds out the group, bringing a learned and seasoned style to the Tortured Soul sound - rhythmic and soulful, blending his background in jazz with Brazilian pop, African rhythms, and 70's R&B.
Tortured Soul takes the dynamism of modern pop music and dance culture and tempers it with experienced musicianship to create their signature sound: energetic, infectious, live soulful house.
