Progressive Rock Funk Fusion
Dynamic funk/rock/fusion trio URTH delivers a powerful blend of music that blurs genres and infuses crowds with high-energy grooves and infectious movement of the feet. Their unique, innovative sound and exploratory improvisation engage audiences and inspire new fans.
Frontman Brach Rauchle’s multitasking instrumental approach involves playing multiple instruments simultaneously to create a unique, multifaceted sonic & improvisatory experience as he moves between modified 7-string guitar, saxophone, vocals, electronic wind instrument & keyboard along with customized “foot keyboards” and finger triggers. The dance-inducing rhythm section of drummer Brett Reynolds and bassist Nick Kalen cement the foundation of the band with their rock-solid grooves.
URTH has performed at a variety of music festivals including The Werk Out, Camp Barefoot, Pink Moon, and Rooster Walk and has also shared the bill with acts such as Ozric Tentacles, Consider the Source, The Mantras, The Jeff Sipe Trio, The Bridge, Dangermuffin, and DJ Williams Project.
In the words of Tad Dickens, Roanoke Times music columnist: “If you haven’t heard Brach Rauchle wail on guitar, sax, keys and electronic wind instrument, you are missing out on an astounding display… and the rest of his trio – bassist Nick Kalen and drummer Brett Reynolds flat nail the grooves.”
