Darryl Anders AgapeSoul

Darryl Anders~AgapéSoul

Darryl Anders~AgapéSoul is a Modern Soul band based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Led by bassist/producer Darryl Anders, the band delivers a musical experience that is all about Love, Soul …and undeniably funky grooves, destined to stand the test of time.
Before stepping out as a bandleader, Anders built a reputation as a solid sideman with an impeccable sense of time, tone and a mile-deep pocket. His credits include gigs with funk and soul legends Tower of Power, Zigaboo Modeliste, and Booker T. Jones, as well as Grammy-winning songwriter Bonnie Hayes, and two-time Grammy-nominee Ledisi.

Believe in Love, AgapéSoul’s debut album, showcases Anders’ musical vision as a songwriter. The album’s seven original songs and two covers are deeply soulful, uniquely classic, and speak to “the place of love that’s in all of us.”

The truth is, if you’ve been missing real music, you'll love AgapéSoul. Besides being highly-skilled purveyors of soulful originals and definitive remakes, AgapéSoul represents a movement that is at once innovative and deeply-rooted in a continuum; a new voice of music from the “True School.” Their goal is to bring something positive to listeners.
Anders has brought together a team of in-demand musicians whose reputations extend well beyond the SF Bay Area. The full album features musical contributions from Indra Jones (vocals), Zoe Ellis (vocals), Aaron Green (drums), Lynette Williams (keys), Errol Cooney (guitar), Jubu Smith (guitar), Vince Lars (sax), Mike Blankenship (keys), and Martin Luther McCoy (vocals).
Explains Anders: “It is not about us, as people or as musicians. It’s about the songs. I’ve been blessed with an opportunity to share my music with the world, and it is my hope that AgapéSoul will inspire and encourage everyone who hears us.
“Agapé means God’s love, the ultimate love that God has for every living thing, and Soul represents the style of music, as well as the place within us where music lives.” Says Anders, “This album embodies the spirit of live music; the kind of music you can only get from a group of musicians working together. When you see this band live, you can feel that it’s all about the music—real people playing real music and relating to listeners, both as individuals and as members of a larger audience. We want to communicate positive energy that’s uplifting at the core. We want people to leave with a better attitude than they came with. We want people to believe in love.”
