Urban Preacher: Urban Preacher

The six tracks on the self-titled Urban Preacher EP are a showcase for the band's versatility. They play southern rock, blues, soul, funk and singer Myrrhine Faller even throws in some rap in the vein of Blondie's Rapture.

The Toronto band feels most at ease when they can rock out in bluesy tracks like On The Rooftop and Moanin' The Blues. The new single Vintage Girl is a powerful ballad name checking Deep Purple's Smoke On The Water. With a sound that is firmly rooted in the Seventies the sextet thrives in a live setting. No wonder that they recorded the EP "from the floor".
