Thee Sacred Souls

Got A Story To Tell

    The highly anticipated follow-up to Thee Sacred Souls's breakout 2022 self-titled debut, ‘Got A Story To Tell’, features 12 all original new songs, a soaring statement of exquisite craftsmanship from this young band from San Diego whose story grows bigger by the day. Recorded and produced by Gabriel Roth at Penrose Recorders, in Daptone’s Riverside, CA studio, and written in the throes of supporting their 2022 album, which was met with significant excitement and major touring that brought them across the world.

    What swirls together on ‘Got A Story To Tell’ is an appreciation of decades of soul music, and beyond - a sound and feel that is timeless, lived in, and very much in the now. Album opener “Lucid Girl” champions independent women, set to some of the toughest sounding drums and bass the band has yet to put to tape. “Waiting On The Right Time” slinks with a touch of slow-burning psychedelia. A plea for empathy punctuates “One and the Same,” with Lane singing: “We’re one and the same, I feel one day / We learn to live with each other / In love, not fear / Just for a moment, why can’t we be together.” “On My Mind” is a sweeping orchestration, with Lane navigating the complexities of finding happiness while balancing the good with the bad. The album is punctuated with strings and squelching guitar, trundling piano, pops of conga, horns - it makes for a thrilling, layered listen that rewards with multiple spins.

      Thee Sacred Souls

      The Instrumentals

        Introducing the Instrumental album for Thee Sacred Souls’ critically acclaimed, self-titled debut, featuring instrumental versions of their hit singles, “Can I Call You Rose?”, “Weak For Your Love” and “Future Lover”.

        Since the release of their debut, the breakout San Diego-based sweet soul group (who helped launch the Daptone imprint Penrose Records) has had a remarkable run, including 170 million streams on Spotify, performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, CBS Saturday Morning, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Kelly Clarkson Show, and sold out shows in major rooms from NYC & Chicago, to LA & London.

        This release is limited to 10k worldwide and will not be repressed. A true collectors item for the die-hard fans.


        Barry says: Though the vocals of Sacred Souls' Josh Lane add the smooth, zesty topping to the sweet sugar of the instrumental backdrop, there's a real joy to be had in the pure groove of the instrumentals. Plus, what Karaoke machine would have the backing tracks you, as a Sacred Sould fan needs? Exactly. It's ace.

        Thee Sacred Souls

        Thee Sacred Souls

          For Thee Sacred Souls, the first time is often the charm. The band’s first club dates led to a record deal with the revered Daptone label; their first singles racked up more than ten million streams in a year and garnered attention from Billboard, Rolling Stone, and KCRW; and their first fans included the likes of Gary Clark Jr., The Black Pumas, Princess Nokia, and Timbaland. Now, the breakout San Diego trio is ready to deliver yet another landmark first with the release of their self-titled debut on Daptone records.

          “Every step of the way has just been so organic,” says drummer Alex Garcia. “Things just seem to happen naturally when the three of us get together.”

          Indeed, there’s something inevitable about the sound of Thee Sacred Souls, as if Garcia and his bandmates—bassist Sal Samano and singer Josh Lane—have been playing together for a lifetime already. Produced by Bosco Mann (aka Daptone co-founder Gabriel Roth), Thee Sacred Souls is a warm and textured record, mixing the easygoing grace of sweet ’60s soul with the grit and groove of early ’70s R&B, and the performances are utterly intoxicating, with Lane’s weightless vocals anchored by the rhythm section’s deep pocket and infectious chemistry.

          Hints of Chicano, Philly, Chicago, Memphis and even Panama soul turn up here, and while it’s tempting to toss around labels like “retro” with a deliberately analog collection like this, there’s also something distinctly modern about the band that defies easy categorization, a rawness and a sincerity that transcends time and place.
