Touchwood evolved into playing a unique style of jazz-rock. The band’s soul lies in the fact that the only instrument powering the
melody is the piano with the rhythm supplied by the drums.The bass forms the connection between the two. The canopy is a light acoustic guitar blending perfectly with crisp vocal harmonies.The band is mainly influenced by Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac,The Little River Band, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer, the Indian bands Thermal And A Quarter and Rainbow Bridge, CSNY,Queen, the Beatles. Yes, the list is endless.Experimentation with chords, sounds and song structures is what this band is all about. Classifying the band into a
particular genre would not do justice to its music and you can safely assume that this band is a jazz-rock band with progressive and psychedelic influences thrown in. As the band members say, every problem can be sorted out by a good jam session!!

and won many inter-collegiate music competitions. Some of
