Listen / Buy the new album: Instrumentals by Soul Secret Agency
Recorded entirely on analog tape under the direction of producer and sound engineer Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Leonard Cohen, Godspeed You! Black Emperor), the album pays homage to 60’s Soul and R&B in Canada and especially in Montreal at a time when many Afro-American musicians would take up residency in cabarets and clubs across the city.
The songs conjure classic grooves and lavish melodies hinting at the sound of Motown and at the live music that was heard at the Apollo, Black Orchid, and Soul Heaven in Montreal.
