A Little Ear Candy

You may have noticed a sweet new addition to the blog. What you are hearing is "Fall in Love" by Tortured Soul, a house/Soul/R&B group based here in NYC.

In 1992 two college students, John Christian Urich (aka Cooly) and Angela Johnson formed an R&B group that would echo the sounds of soulful R&B groups of the 70s. The group was called Cooly's Hot Box. In the past 15 years Cooly's Hot Box gained international acclaim and toured the UK, US and Japan.

Tortured Soul is one of the duo's more recent projects featuring Urich song writing and vocals.

If I had some sort of rating system for music this would receive top honors. I think Lenny Kravitz said it best when he described Tortured Soul's sound as the type of music he wakes up to on Saturday morning when the sun comes through the window.

Tortured Soul will be playing in Brooklyn on February 10th if anyone is interested in joining me!
