Recap: Saun and Starr turned it up at NonCOMM with help from the Dap-Kings
Powerhouse vocalists Saundra Williams and Starr Duncan Lowe are getting their moment in the spotlight this spring. The longtime backup singers for soul sensation Sharon Jones are releasing Look Closer, their debut LP as Saun and Starr, on Tuesday. Tonight, backed by the mighty Dap-Kings, they gave NonCOMM a taste of what they can do.
The arrangements are bright and energetic classic soul jams, and the band made them sound huge, but the thing that made songs like “Hot Shot” and “Sunshine” really pop were Williams and Lowe, their commanding charisma, their powerful voices and dance moves. Listen to the record here, listen to the performance below and check out photos from their set in the gallery.
