Founded in 2015, The Sextones built a devoted following across the West Coast beforebreaking out internationally with their self-released 2017 debut album Moonlight Vision, quicklyfinding success in Japan via P-Vine Records. Soon after, the band began touring extensivelyacross the U.S. and Europe, quickly garnering international attention from soul music fans,record collectors, and critics alike. A steady roster of national performances cemented theirreputation as critical and festival favorites, with Okayplayer describing Moonlight Vision as "Theresult of a Herculean work ethic, mixed with a Sherlock Holmes-esque attention to detail and anuance that can be appreciated by true music lovers." Live For Live Music detailed their musicalapproach, writing: "By taking classic sounds, modernizing them, and making them their own, theSextones have carved out a niche for themselves within the modern funk and soul movement,and we are digging every second of it." And PopDust praised the group as "A glowing reminderof where music came from, and serves as a vehicle to light a fire under a new generation."
Friends since childhood, The Sextones are Mark Sexton (guitar, vocals), Alexander Korostinsky(bass), Daniel Weiss (drums), and Christopher Sexton (piano). Having known each other for solong, their musical chemistry is effortless and forms the foundation of the band's longevity andcreative workflow. Despite their bond, each member has been able to channel their creativityinto other acclaimed groups-Alexander and Mark with their cinematic-soul project WhatitdoArchive Group and Daniel's recent engagement in the soul/jazz group Delvon Lamarr OrganTrio. Flexing their creative muscle individually has only strengthened The Sextones' collectivesongwriting ability and heralds their formidable return to the spotlight with their upcoming recordthis fall. With their recent signing to heavy-weight soul label, Record Kicks, the self-made heroesof soul begin a new chapter in their sonic journey, ready to scale new heights and plumb deepemotional depths in service of the genre they love.
