Daptone Records Announce ‘Look Closer’ Debut Album By Saun & Starr Released May 18th In The UK & May 19th in the US.
Soulful duo Saundra Williams and Starr Duncan became friends when they met at an open mic night in Harlem in the ’80s. For the past five years they have sung backing vocals for Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings.
Now they are ready to take center stage as Saun and Starr, with the release of their debut album ‘Look Closer’ out in the UK, May 18th 2015.
