About The Sextones

The Sextones

Founded in 2015, The Sextones built a devoted following across the West Coast before
breaking out internationally with their self-released 2017 debut album Moonlight Vision, quickly
finding success in Japan via P-Vine Records. Soon after, the band began touring extensively
across 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 their
reputation as critical and festival favorites, with Okayplayer describing Moonlight Vision as "The
result of a Herculean work ethic, mixed with a Sherlock Holmes-esque attention to detail and a
nuance that can be appreciated by true music lovers." Live For Live Music detailed their musical
approach, writing: "By taking classic sounds, modernizing them, and making them their own, the
Sextones 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 reminder
of 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 so
long, their musical chemistry is effortless and forms the foundation of the band's longevity and
creative workflow. Despite their bond, each member has been able to channel their creativity
into other acclaimed groups-Alexander and Mark with their cinematic-soul project Whatitdo
Archive Group and Daniel's recent engagement in the soul/jazz group Delvon Lamarr Organ
Trio. Flexing their creative muscle individually has only strengthened The Sextones' collective
songwriting ability and heralds their formidable return to the spotlight with their upcoming record
this fall. With their recent signing to heavy-weight soul label, Record Kicks, the self-made heroes
of soul begin a new chapter in their sonic journey, ready to scale new heights and plumb deep
emotional depths in service of the genre they love.
