Artist Biography

Thee Sacred Souls is an R&B group that was started in San Diego in 2019 by drummer/guitarist Alex Garcia and bassist Sal Samano. The pair bonded over shared experiences growing up in Southern California and record collecting. The pair found their vocalist Josh Lane on Instagram. Lane studied classical voice where he sang French arias and Italian opera and wanted to move towards dream pop. However, he was sold on the old-school soul sound that Garcia and Samano were brewing up. The group performed lived as a seven-piece and generated a local following fairly quickly. Their quick rise in popularity and got signed to the new Daptone imprint Penrose Records as the new label’s inaugural release. Thee Sacred Souls released their debut self-titled album in 2023 and an Audiotree Live EP in 2023. In their short time, they have gotten attention from Billboard, Rolling Stone, and even some notable artists like Gary Clark Jr., The Black Pumas, and Princess Nokia. The band will get a warm welcome on the Farm as they continue to turn heads.
