Founded by producer/drummer, Gabriel Rowland and singer/songwriter, Victor Benavides in 2017, Los Yesterdays wanted to create music that recalled their childhood days as young chicanos.
“Souldies” is how they describe their contemporary take on their deep soul tracks. Their songs eventually ended up in the hands of acclaimed producer/guitarist, Tom Brenneck who was working with the late Charles Bradley amongst other projects. Tommy was a fan of the songs but finding out Los Yesterdays were only a duo, he decided to see if his friend, Gabe Roth would be interested in starting a project. Roth, being best known as producer/bass player/bandleader for the late Sharon Jones, as well as the co-founder of Daptone Records.
After meetings with Roth and Tommy, they had a jam session and in the summer of 2018, Los Yesterdays was formed.
