Stream of Concrete
"Teresa Storch has an immediate emotional way with a song... people can't help but be pulled into her world." -Boston Herald music writer Daniel Gewertz Show most people a swirly Dave Matthews Band poster and what do they see? Teresa Storch saw her calling. While studying engineering at the Colorado School of Mines she got hooked on the jam band scene. One show at Red Rocks prompted her to say out loud "I want to do that!" When a friend joked, "Do you think you missed your calling?", "Maybe?" was her reply. However, a little voice in her head just wouldn't shut up. It prompted her to start writing and performing her own music. Now, years later, she's encouraging others to follow their own voice with her contagious smile and songs that put you in motion. Audience members say it's like seeing Bonnie Raitt or Greg Brown when they first started. She connects like she's known you forever and inhabits her songs so fully you can't help but be drawn in. Storch has toured 33 states over 4 years, bringing her soulful roots-pop to bars, coffeehouses, living rooms and cafes, and becoming, along the way, a live performer of joyful strength and riveting, emotional power. With her debut full-length album "Stream of Concrete," her national profile is bound to rise. It's an ambitious, stylish and remarkably diverse project. The album mixes Tower of Power with Sarah MacLachlan by way of Hoagy Carmichael. It goes from folk-rock to soul-pop, from the opening R&B horns and sultry vocals of "Your Story", and the southern-tinged, folk-rock of "Stream of Concrete", to the confident funk of "Tongue-Tied."
