    of Gudula Urban & Band:

THANK you all..
for coming to our CD release at Porgy & Bess, for the full and sold out house! Thanks to Porgy for having us, to our wonderful featured guests, ant to all of your for buying our CDs...
it was so much fun and such an honor!


The Vienna-based singer/songwriter & cellist/composer Gudula Urban feels at home in jazz, blues, pop & funk as well as in classical music. After having studied cello in Vienna and Salzburg, Austria and the USA, she worked as a university cello instructor in Bangkok Thailand and has performed as a soloist, a chamber- and orchestra musician and band member all over the world.

While doing so she always sought ways to express her ideas through her own projects - writing songs and instrumental pieces, improvising whenever fitting, and jamming and collaborating with creative musicians wherever she went.

Besides still playing classical concerts, she currently performs extensively with the very creative celloquartet Extracello, with the jazz & world music - trio Urban Shoe and last but not least with her very own, newly restarted funky jazz-pop group

Gudula Urban & Band!
