ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
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.”

Gospel-tinged Don’t Say U Love Me, featuring vocalist Zoe Ellis, immediately connects you to a time when musicians played real instruments, songs had enduring melodies, and lyrics actually said something. Anders’ husky baritone and Vince Lars’ passionate sax-work on Time Cannot Erase place this sensual new classic high on the list of modern baby-making music. Indra Jones’ sultry vocals on the funky yet laid-back Tell Me Where It Hurts are just what the doctor ordered. Featured guest vocalist Martin Luther McCoy brings his celebrated soulful finesse to AgapéSoul’s cover of the Quincy Jones classic If I Ever Lose This Heaven— this is one song you will keep on repeat!

The truth is, if you’ve been missing real music, you'll love AgapéSoul. Besides being highly-skilled purveyors of soulful originals and definitive covers, 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.”

Soul beyond Soul
AgapéSoul's music is deeper than it's soulful-groovy name. This record is amazing, in a groovy-harmonic-lyrical-way. I love it! Through its lyrics and the relationship between the harmony and the melody, each song manages to take the listener into a strong life reflection, together with funky vocals and bass lines.
As a music enthusiast, I strongly recommend this album!

I'm a Believer...
“Believe in Love” from Darryl Anders’ AgapeSoul is one of those rare records that comes along once every 5-10 years, a mature record that still fits comfortably into the collection of people from many age groups and cultural backgrounds. It is a collection of music that makes evident within just a few bars that there was thought, effort and love put into this music. What it is NOT is a “bass record”. It is also not a “copy-cat” record. While the influence of 'great bassists past 'is evident Anders isn’t stealing from them, he is putting his own name on the list in a long line of great players and producers.

I Believe in Love
I had to listen to this album over and over again. The songs make me feel great, I had a hard time choosing my favorite but I think it might be "Time Cannot Erase" as the vocals are so incredible and touched my heart.
