Sorceress

Bio

Sorceress is a 5 piece band from New Zealand formerly known as Funkommunity. Their debut album Chequered Thoughts was widely acclaimed around the world and saw them tour Europe and Japan in 2012. The creative duo at the core of Sorceress is vocalist Rachel Fraser and producer/band leader Isaac Aesili. They also collaborate with other NZ musicians including the band's guitarist Daniel Ryland.

“They have that old thing. And not meaning old thing like, 60’s or 70’s. No, but old thing like late 90’s early 2000’s when every r&b/soul song had a nasty bass groove, and a snappy off-beat snare, catalyzing headnods and handclaps like nothing that came before it. That future-retro sound that we know so well from the likes of Georgia Anne Muldrow, Sonnymoon and Muhsinah — Dilla inspired. All of the elements that make up Chequered Thoughts, are stellar, but at the core is the soulfully infectious voice of Rachel Fraser.” Okayplayer

2012/13 saw Sorceress tour Europe and Japan, returning to NZ just in time to hit the busy summer season, playing numerous festivals as well as outdoor & indoor shows around the Australasia as well as writing & recording album #2, Dose.

Expanding on the outstanding debut album of Chequered Thoughts, Sorceress are exploring more directions in Soul Electronica. Fans can expect further excursions into Dilla influenced beats with jazz textures, bouncing baselines and Rachel's soulful vocals plus some new directions including some dance floor orientated business and experimental expeditions.
