AgapéSoul is the brainchild of bassist, songwriter, and producer Darryl Anders. His resumé includes playing with the legendary Tower of Power, and recording and preforming with Meters drummer Zigaboo Modeliste.
AgapeSoul’s debut CD Believe In Love earned comparisons to popular r&b/jazz ensembles Incognito and The Brand New Heavies – and reached #1 on the UK Soul Chart.
AgapéSoul’s 2018 follow-up CD Conversations made a big noise worldwide hitting the #1 spot twice on both the UK Soul Chart and the Indie Soul Chart in the US.
The project is driven by Anders’ singular musical vision to create a positive listening experience. Anders says “The name AgapéSoul comes from the Greek word Agape- meaning God’s unconditional love, and Soul- the place within us where music comes from. It also reflects the style of music I feel connected to”.
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone. Darryl just released a timely single “Bulletproof” featuring Tommy Sims which speaks directly to the moment that is now. The poignant chorus lyric “you can kill the man but you can’t kill the message … “ rings true as a timeless anthem, The accompanying video is gritty and honest and reflects the raw emotion of the world we live in.
"As an artist I feel it’s important to speak on issues that are crucial to the healing of our society"
