“Boasting beats that would make the late James Brown blush, Chris Youmans & The Sound Agency are funky with a capital “F,” drawing influence from any and everything that is catchy and dance-inducing.” (Under The Gun Review) The Sound Agency takes the best elements of classic and modern pop, rock, funk, and soul and weaves them around award-winning singer/songwriter/guitarist Chris Youmans’s truly infectious songs. At the group’s core is a collaboration between Youmans and multi-instrumentalist Colin Deas, who Youmans met while studying music at UC Berkeley in 2013.
The band released their debut EP, Make Things Right, in February 2016 to a sold out crowd at Neck of the Woods in San Francisco. Following the release, the band moved from Berkeley to Los Angeles and has begun touring tirelessly on the west coast. This summer they will be making their debut at several California festivals and working on their next release.
