You may have heard Saun & Starr singing live with The Dap-Kings. Now, these two seasoned former backup singers are taking center stage.

Saun & Starr have been singing together and separately around New York City for a while. Most recently, they've been touring nationally, singing backup for their friend Sharon Jones with The Dap-Kings. The Daptones Records folks decided it was their time, so Saun & Starr went into the studio with The Dap-Kings to make their debut album, Look Closer. Here, they perform live in the studio for World Cafe.
