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.
AgapéSoul bring with them a special guest, Martin Luther. Martin Luther McCoy is an American musician and actor. The San Francisco native has collaborated with musicians like The Roots and Cody ChesnuTT and appears as one of the six lead characters in the 2007 Beatles musical Across the Universe in the role of "Jo-Jo", who reflects Jimi Hendrix. In the film, McCoy performs the song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", and provides guitar and vocals on others.
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. AgapéSoul represents a movement that is innovative and deep-rooted in a continuum; a new voice of music from the “True School.” Their goal is to bring something positive to listeners. Anders explains, “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 the music of AgapéSoul will inspire and encourage everyone who hears it.”
