Saun & Starr - Look Closer

The new duo from Daptone brings the funk to last.fm

With the coveted seal of quality from the inimitable Daptone Records, New York City based Saundra Williams and Starr Duncan Lowe have kicked their career as stars off on the right foot. Hailing from South Bronx, the duo only met when they shared an open mic stage one night at a Harlem club. From there they became inseperable, full-fledged musical partners.

A few years later, unbeknownst to one another, they auditioned for background vocal parts for a wedding band which just happened to be helmed by the now legendary Sharon Jones. The rest is history: Sharon went on to form the seminal band Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, bringing Saun & Starr with her.

Now Saun & Starr are stepping out from the background and coming into their own with the release of their new LP, Look Closer.
