SXSW 2023 Ones To Watch: Thee Sacred Souls

Thee Sacred Souls

SXSW 2023 Ones To Watch

All this week, KUTX profiles the Ones To Watch—seven must-see artists at SXSW 2023. Hosted by Jody Denberg and produced by Art Levy.

San Diego’s Thee Sacred Souls: are they old school soul? Modern soul? The answer is YES. And what else would you expect from a trio whose self-titled debut was released on Brooklyn’s revered Daptone Records, which brought us favorites like Charles Bradley and Sharon Jones?
Thee Sacred Souls is a warm, textured record, mixing the easygoing grace of sweet ’60s soul with the grit and groove of early ’70s R&B. There are also hints of Chicano, Philly, Chicago, Memphis and even Panama soul rounding out its rawness and sincerity. Their sound has made fans Austinites Gary Clark Jr. and Black Pumas, and their European tour that kicks off next month begins with a string of sold-out shows in England. They also land at Bonnaroo come June. But first – Austin!
Catch Thee Sacred Souls performing live twice on KUTX: from the Public Radio Day Stage at the Austin Convention Center on Friday, March 17 at 2 p.m. and from Scholz Garten on Saturday, March 18 at 11 a.m.
