Saun and Starr

Saun and Starr Joe Del Tufo
Backup Singers Saun & Starr Walk The 20 feet To Stardom!

You have heard our guests today Saun and Starr singing live with The Dap-Kings; two soulful and seasoned former back up singers are now taking center stage. Their love and mutual respect is clearly visible. Saun and Starr have been singing together and separately around New York City for a while. Most recently they have been touring nationally backing up their good friend Sharon Jones with the Dap-Kings. The Daptones Records folks decided it was their time and put Saun and Starr into the studio with The Dap-Kings to make their debut album Look Closer. It was a joy to meet them and check out our smashing video to see them live.
