Sturtz’s music stands out for its distinctive, soothing instrumental and vocal harmonies. The acoustic quartet – Andrew Sturtz [vocals, guitar], Jim Herlihy [banjo], Courtlyn Carpenter [cello], and Will Kuepper [bass] – falls somewhere at the intersection of folk, jazz, and soul, with lead singer Andrew Sturtz’s melodic vocals soaring over the lower string instrumentals. Sturtz is based in Boulder, CO, making appearances at venues like eTown in Boulder, CO, the Belly Up in Aspen, CO, and the Mishawaka Amphitheater in Bellvue, CO. The band was featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered in 2020 and will be releasing a full-length album on August 15, 2021.
