Chris Youmans & The Sound Agency
came to life in 2013. At the group’s core is a collaboration between Youmans and multi-instrumentalist Colin Deas, who Youmans met while studying music at UC Berkeley. The Sound Agency takes the best elements of classic and modern pop, rock, funk, and soul and weaves them around Youmans’s infectious songs.
The band released their debut EP, Make Things Right, in February 2016 to a sold out crowd at Neck of the Woods in San Francisco. Following the release, the band moved from Berkeley to Los Angeles and has begun touring tirelessly on the west coast. This summer they will be making their debut at several California festivals and working on their next release.
The Make Things Right EP is currently streaming below on Bandcamp; my favorite song includes the title track.
