NYS Music is proud to present the exclusive premiere of Wurliday’s new EP Bedtime Blazer! Co-written by frontman Justin Henricks (Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan, The Chronicles) and Arielle O’Keefe (Girl Blue), the EP was recorded and produced at Alan Evans’ (Soulive) Iron Wax Studios in Millers Falls, MA.
Bedtime Blazer is the first look into this group’s sound, giving audiences a chance to listen before the band officially kicks things off this summer. The EP offers a fresh and modern take on funk and soul, and you can hear soulful vocals and harmonies by Arielle O’Keefe, Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band), and Tyrone Hartzog. The EP features some great synth/organ overlays throughout with a consistently funky guitar. With just four tracks, you’re left wanting more! The clean recordings are pleasing to the ear, and the individual musicianship sounds effortless. Click here for an interview with bandleader Justin Henricks.
Be sure to catch Wurliday live at The Hollow for their EP release party on June 30th! The party kicks off at 8 pm and the band will be joined by special guests The Rechorduroys and Olivia Quillio. Wurliday will also be part of Albany’s Alive at Five on July 13 when they open up for New Orleans legends The Funky Meters.
