KALA welcomes acoustic indie-folk quartet STURZ from Boulder Colorado, on tour, Friday, June 30 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $20. Doors open at 7:30pm. Tickets available online @

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’re 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.

“Theirs is a sound that is part acoustic indie-rock, part laid-back psychedelic folk with subtle and soft harmonies” – Durango Herald 7/2021
