Returning to an A2SF stage this summer is Detroit-based vocal ensemble Dames Brown. The trio, composed of Athena Johnson, Teresa Marbury, and LaRae Starr, share extensive backgrounds in jazz, R&B, funk, soul, and gospel singing, ensuring that they each bring a wide range of musical stylings to their performances. The vocalists have lent their exquisite range to several essential modern house tracks, including Sophie Lloyd’s “Calling Out.” Their debut single “What Would You Do?” is a showcase for their dynamic vocals, capturing an intriguing, danceable blend of funk, house, and soul. Production muscle from Amp Fiddler and Andrés pushes musical boundaries and rounds the track out with the Dames’ vocal delivery bringing the heat. New music is soon to come on British dance music label Defected, but in the meantime be sure to experience the striking songwriting and house music authenticity of Dames Brown live for yourself at A2SF.
