Tortured Soul | Did You Miss Me

Tortured Soul, which is
comprised of members Drummer- John-Christian Ulrich, bassist-Jason
Kriveloff, and keyboardist-Ethan White, have put together a very
impressive album aptly titled, “Did You Miss Me”.

And if you listen closely to
this project, you’ll hear the trials and tribulations that you get from
touring, hanging out after the show, and being away from home. Tortured Soul has captured this feeling in the form of music for the disc.

Tortured Soul is keeping that
80’s vibe alive, but sounding more on the U.K. side of things
musically. The first track “Home To You” has a quick sample from the
old school disco/soul group Change, and the whole cd is a dance floor delight. I like where
they infuse different styles of music while keeping that solid European
80’s type of groove. Tortured Soul has always recorded a instrumental
track, which in turn has that deep funk, acid jazz feel to it. And most of
there songs has that vibe to it

Johns’ voice keeps sounding better and better throughout the rotation of the disc, and keeps a even keel throughout. His drumming is seriously in the pocket folks.

“Home To You”, “In My Fantasy”,
“Did You Miss Me (intro)”, “Did You Miss Me”, “Your Dream Is My Dream”, “Time
To Make Up Your Mind”, “Another Lover”, “Unsteady”, “We Like Tequila”, “Special
Lady”, “In Motion (instrumental)”, “See You More”, & “At The Bottom”
, are the
Track Listings for this CD.

So…if you want to get your groove on before you hit the streets, this is the best bet. Here’s a video of Tortured Soul – Live at Liv’s in Washington D.C.:
