Wurk is a 7 piece funk-fusion group from Madison, WI. The group started in December of 2015 and in 2018 won 1st place in the Madison Area Music Award's competition for Breakthrough Artist of the Year. Wurk's style encompasses several genres, with influences from bands like Snarky Puppy, Thundercat, Umphrey's McGee, Tauk, and many more. With songwriting by guitarist/vocalist, Frank Laufenberg, and keyboardist/vocalist Miles Morkri, Wurk fills the gap between complexity and groove. Max Morkri drives the band with his blend of solid grooving and intricate chops. Coupled with Max's drumming, Casey Seymour delivers powerful bass lines which pull the band together. Ryley Buchanan (synth/organ), Daniel Haschke (saxophone/flute) and Carl Hipenbecker (trumpet) add to Wurk's complexity with horn lines, effects, and impressive solos. Wurk released two EPs in 2017 (Wurk, Broken Disco) and The Devil's Wurk EP in September, 2018.
