Review: Darryl Anders-Agapesoul "Believe in Love"

April 25, 2013
share

Darryl Anders is a modern soul force. Leading his septet, AgapéSoul—one of the Bay Area’s baddest live bands—to their disc debut, Darryl does it all, penning and producing instant classic R&B gems that pivot on his penetrating, fluid bass lines. Flexing his thumb on the Chaka-esque funky title track opener and a pocketed reharm of “Sir Duke,” Anders applies finger finesse to the twisty urban samba “Voice of Reason” and the gospel shuffle “Heaven Can Hear Us,” and employs multiple techniques on a sweet reading of Quincy Jones’ “If I Ever Lose This Heaven.” The bottom-end bonus? His warm baritone lead vocal on his reflective ballad “Time Cannot Erase.”
