Albatross / Press

“Albatross is an Athens, Georgia-based rock band that creates a blend of blues, jam, and funk that comes from the soul. They play shows around Athens (Iris’s hometown) regularly, but they actually caught our ears on Facebook a while back. Albatross’s self-described genre on Facebook is “indescribable jazz/blues/funk/rock,” which I think is pretty accurate. If you must have a comparison, their sound is most similar to Back Door Slam and the Derek Trucks Band, and I can definitely hear the influence of the great Allman Brothers Band. ”

“Rising from a town so rich with musical bliss, Athens musical group “Albatross” has spanned it's wings to take flight over the Athens/Atlanta area, with their funky grooves and diverse line-up, consisting of founding members of Albatross, Dustin and Matt Urich. The brothers each add their own twist to the music with their jazzy guitar licks and soulful Blues vocals. The band has been richly rewarded with the dynamic and pulsating rhythm section comprised of Drew Hart on Bass Guitar and Scott Tracy on Drums and Austin Young on Keys and Sax. Drew and Scott are well seasoned musicians, delivering a driving beat that demands movement, while Austin adds a unique twist to it all on the ivory's/sax. Albatross, fresh from a period of diligent practice, now continues to entreat the souls of the Athens and Atlanta area! ”
