Live at Roots Music Project

The Artist


Indie Soulful Folk
Sturtz gives us a raw and honest live performance of poetry, harmonies and thoughtful interplay between the musicians. Captured at Roots Music Project, an indie venue right down the street from PS Audio in Boulder, CO, this band is as Colorado original as it gets. With a blend of folk, soul and bluegrass, Sturtz conjures a unique sound that only the chemistry of their four members can create together. Available as download and SACD, this DSD256 project is for audiophiles that love that sounds and feeling of being "in the room".

The acoustic quartet – Andrew Sturtz [vocals, guitar], Jim Herlihy [banjo], Courtlyn Carpenter [cello], and Will Kuepper [bass]– falls somewhere at the intersection of folk and soul, with lead singer Andrew Sturtz’s melodic vocals soaring over the lower string instrumentals. Sturtz is based in Boulder, CO, and has toured across the U.S. opening for groups like the Eli Young Band, Trout Steak Revival, Lillie Mae, and Smooth Hound Smith. NPR’s All Songs Considered described the band as “a reassuring breath of fresh air that pulls me back to simpler times” in their April 2020 blog. Sturtz released their debut album You’ve Done this Before in August 2021, and now they are hard at work touring on this album and writing songs for their next album. When they’re not playing music, you’ll probably find them milling flour, farming, laying in a creek, or eating native foliage.
