Urich began playing his compositions “Might Do Something Wrong”, “When You Find Your Love Hold On”, “Fall In Love” and “How’s Your Life” with his bandmates from the rhythm section of NYC’s acid-jazz band Topaz: bassist Jason “JKriv” Kriveloff and keyboardist Ethan White. Eventually they broke away to form the trio Tortured Soul. They began touring in 2003. They played the Montreal Jazz Festival, Zouk Singapore, Bonnaroo in Tennessee, Fabric in London, and the Cape Town International Jazz Festival in South Africa. They performed with Chaka Kahn, The Wailers, The Brand New Heavies, and Pharcyde.
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.
