Saundra Williams and Starr Duncan Lowe have long been part of the extended Daptone family, providing backing vocals for Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings throughout the last decade. Here, the New York-based duo gets a chance to showcase their talents - backed, of course, by the Dap Kings - on a much-deserved debut album. Musically, there are few surprises, with the duo adding their sweet, evocative vocals to backing tracks that doff a cap to the golden age of soul. In other words, it could be a Sharon Jones album, albeit with a baggier, looser feel

Daptone Records is proud to release Look Closer, the debut album by Saun & Starr, in May 2015. While the group’s name may not be immediately familiar, Starr Duncan-Lowe and Saundra Williams’ distinctive voices have been featured as the background vocals for Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings both on stage and on record. Though they grew up mere blocks from one another in New York’s South Bronx, singing in local church choirs and in plays since a young age, the pair didn’t meet until an open mic night in 1986. It would be a while before their first outing as a duo. In the meantime, both ladies separately pursued their own respective singing careers

Tracks such as Gonna Make Time or Sunshine (You’re Blowin’ My Cool) feature the harmonizing pair breathily making promises to their prospective lovers in a way that would sound familiar on most of Jones’ albums in the last 10 years, and certainly don’t break the mold. Hopefully, Saun & Starr will continue exploring this playful side and highlighting those things that make them unique from an already unique performer like Sharon Jones. Their debut promises the possibility of future growth that could find the duo carving out a very fun, well-earned niche.
