Of the next broadcast of “Roots to the Source,” Sunday, August 9th, special-guest DJ Philo Beto writes:

Sarah Agbelusi and Josh Myers are a soulful, jazzy folk duo from Ventura, CA. The two are currently working on their first studio album, with an expected release date in the spring of 2016.

They met at a local jazz jam in the fall of 2013, and played around town in several local bands.  In the summer of 2014, they began what started as an acoustic duo, but now include a rotating cast of their mutual musician friends for support.  Sarah’s soulful voice, lyrics, and melodic guitar beautifully counterbalance Josh’s tenor voice, and his dynamic and gritty bass and ukulele.  The result is musical bliss produced by their varied jazz, folk, funk, and rock backgrounds.  They’ve been described as Joe Pass, Tracy Chapman, and Gillian Welch‘s beautiful love child.

Stay tuned for a live in-studio performance and interview this Sunday, August 9th.

“Roots to the Source” airs on Sunday in the summer from 4-6pm PDT.
