For Thee Sacred Souls, the first time is often the charm. 

The band’s first club dates led to a record deal with the revered Daptone label; their first singles racked up more than ten million streams in a year and garnered attention from Billboard, Rolling Stone, and KCRW; and their first fans included the likes of Gary Clark Jr., The Black Pumas, Princess Nokia, and Timbaland. Now, the breakout San Diego trio is ready to deliver yet another landmark first with their inaugural performance in Sydney.

“Every step of the way has just been so organic,” says drummer Alex Garcia. “Things just seem to happen naturally when the three of us get together.”

Indeed, there’s something inevitable about the sound of Thee Sacred Souls, as if Garcia and his bandmates—bassist Sal Samano and singer Josh Lane—have been playing together for a lifetime already. Their debut self titled album, produced by Bosco Mann (aka Daptone co-founder Gabriel Roth), is a warm and textured record, mixing the easy-going grace of sweet ’60s soul with the grit and groove of early ’70s R&B, and the performances are utterly intoxicating, with Lane’s weightless vocals anchored by the rhythm section’s deep pocket and infectious chemistry. Hints of Chicano, Philly, Chicago, Memphis, and even Panama soul turn up here, and while it’s tempting to toss around labels like “retro” with a deliberately analogue collection like this, there’s also something distinctly modern about the band that defies easy categorization, a rawness and a sincerity that transcends time and place.


Supporting Thee Sacred Souls is Setwun

Setwun is the musical brainchild of singer-songwriter, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and DJ - Josh Panakera-Molony.

His music is the aperture for his own self-exploration - a quality that breathes through anything he touches. Shapeshifting through sound yet instinctively soulful, his brand of futurist fusion weaves through the purview of contemporary jazz, beats and electronica with permeable feeling. Whether psychedelic neo-soul, off-kilter broken grooves or wobbly rhythmic experimentation - Setwun makes affecting music, no matter the twist.




Switched On flicks the switch on an iconic venue and activates the Hall in a new light. A sonic shift to contemporary music and a whole new dimension in listening.
