Stepping off the stage after their very first club date, Josh, Sal, and Alex were tugged aside by producer Bosco Mann whose seasoned ears had been tickled by their set. Backs were patted, hands were shook, and three days later heads were bobbing in Mann’s Riverside studio, as the Souls laid their first notes to tape.
Inspired by the souldies around which they were reared, Alex Garcia and Sal Samano found chemistry when they began cutting bedroom demos of rhythm tracks together in 2019. Multi-instrumentalists both, Alex migrated from the guitar to the drums where he discovered the sensitive touch and unique feel that would be the pillowy pulse of the band’s sound, while Sal learned to carve winding bass lines through the deep spidery grooves of their vamps. Though the jams they created together were scintillating, it wasn’t until they connected with vocalist Josh Lane that the real sound of Thee Sacred Souls came into focus. Josh had recently relocated to San D. from Sacramento where he had studied singing, honing his voice into a weightless vehicle that could carry the Smokey-esque lyrics and Marvin-ous melodies he had bubbling within him. The connection was electric, Josh’s mellifluous poetry floating weightlessly atop Alex and Sal’s rhythms, and Thee Sacred Souls were born.
Born in 2015, Oakland's "El Duo" blends lo-fi electronics and afro dance grooves with a natural sense of wonder. Drawing from their deep love of improvisation, Randy Schwartz (Brett Dennen, Illumination) & Harrison Murphy (Sun Hop Fat, Harry & the Hitmen) curate unique and inspired soundscapes for audiences. El Duo weaves together its unabashed brand of experimental dance music with an odd array of drums, percussion, synthesizers and effects. The witty pair approaches their concerts with a raw and loose fervor, often featuring special guests, which gives each of their shows its own distinct magic and character.
