Biography

Darryl Anders~AgapéSoul, is a modern soul band based in the San Francisco Bay Area. The team--comprised of mastermind Darryl Anders, Indra Jones, Aaron Green, Vince Lars, Mike Blankenship, and Cam Perridge--is all about love and soul.

Bassist, singer, songwriter and producer Darryl Anders’ credits include gigs with Tower of Power, Narada Michael Walden, Zigaboo Modeliste, Booker T. Jones, Joyce Cooling, and two-time Grammy-nominee Ledisi, but millions of videogame-crazy kids have heard his bass, production, and vocal skills on Karaoke Revolution, Guitar Hero, and Rock Band.

The moment you put on the gospel-tinged “Don’t Say U Love Me,” featuring guest vocalist Zoe Ellis, you’ll be transported back to a time when musicians played real instruments, songs had enduring melodies, and lyrics actually said something. Anders’ husky baritone and Lars’ soulful sax work make “Time Cannot Erase” take its place high up on the list of modern baby-making music. Jones’ sultry vocals on the funky yet laid-back “Tell Me Where It Hurts” is just what the doctor ordered. The Latin flavored “Voice of Reason” reminds us that love is indeed everlasting. If you like real music, you'll love AgapéSoul.

Besides being highly skilled purveyors of soulful originals, the band represents a movement, a new voice of music from the old school. Their goal is to bring something positive to listeners. “It is not about us, as people or as musicians. It’s about the songs,” says Anders. “I’ve been blessed with an opportunity to share my music with the world, and I hope AgapéSoul will inspire and encourage everyone who hears us.”
