Vesper Public Relations. Los Angeles, CA. (June 2020) – East LA-based, Chicano soul band Thee Sinseers are set to perform at the 2020 Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC), which is going virtual this year for the first time due to the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis.
Led by Latinx singer-songwriter Joseph Quiñones and featuring a full rhythm and brass section, Thee Sinseers are part of a new generation of bands that are inspired by the interrelated lowrider and soul music scenes that began within the Chicano communities of Los Angeles in the 1950s. The popularity of these cultural phenomenon has seen a recent revival, with Southern California-based bands like Chicano Batman and Brainstory receiving national attention.
Thee Sinseers are also part of the new Penrose Records family, founded by famed producer Gabriel Roth, aka Bosco Mann (Amy Winehouse, Sharon Jones, Booker T. Jones). The imprint of the renowned, Brooklyn-based Daptone Records focuses on releasing “souldies” (soul + oldies) music. Thee Sinseers were included in the label’s inaugural compilation EP titled Presenting Penrose Records, which was released in March 2020.

The Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) is a prestigious entertainment conference geared towards the marketing of Spanish-language and Latin alternative music. It showcases what it considers the best in Latin music and the exciting fresh sounds coming out of Latin America and beyond.
ABOUT THEE SINSEERS:
Straight from the working-class neighborhood of East LA, Thee Sinseers are led by Joseph Quiñones and embody the lowrider sweet soul vibe. Love songs, washed with reverb, slow tempos for rolling, and a vibe for days. This type of doo-wop soul has been embraced by the Chicano culture and with a growing scene, Thee Sinseers look to make their own mark.
In 2019, the band released two live video performances on The Recordium YouTube channel that have racked up over 3 million combined views. The band released their most recent single “Seems Like” in March 2020 via Penrose Records.
In December 2019, Thee Sinseers performed at the prestigious Trans Musicales festival in Rennes, France. While in France, they also recorded a live session with the Seattle-based KEXP radio station, which is now available online.
Aside from his work with Thee Sinseers, Quiñones is also a member of Thee Confidentlas, as well as his solo project Barrio Joyride, which channels and revamps the 70s Chicano sounds of groups like Malo, Santana and El Chicano.
