The Altons

How would you characterize the sound of Southeast LA? The Altons, natives of the region, combine dustkicked up from backyard parties with evening Art Laboe listening sessions, evoking a sound that veersfar from the shadows.  

The Altons curate a ballad of retro-indie-soul that has captivated local audiences for several years, quickly driving them to become a staple of the scene.

Their distinct sound caught the attention of Daptone Records Co-founder Gabe Roth, who was in theprocess of starting Penrose Records. Penrose became a subsidiary label to Daptone to highlight theemerging soul-scene growing in Southern California, where The Altons fit perfectly. Their Penrose debut"When You Go (That's When You'll Know)" was KCRW's Today's Top Tune, and their most recent single "Tangled Up In You" has been featured on "Soulection Radio."
