Linc Yow Yeh From the Deans of Soul has a chat on Friends with Wendy and Pete.

Wendy and Pete from Friends With Wendy and Pete had a great yarn with Linc Yow Yeh from The Deans of Soul. Linc Yow Yeh, is a proud Aboriginal South Sea Islander Murri man from Queensland and of Goreng Goreng/Gunja heritage, where his Great Grandmothers’ traditional countries are situated. Goreng Goreng country is located in Bundaberg to just south of Rockhampton Central Queensland, and Gunja country, Cunnamulla south west Queensland. He was born and raised in Jagera/Turrabul Country, Brisbane, and graduated in the early 90s’ as a Physical Education/English teacher at Queensland University of Technology.

The Deans Of Soul are an original Soul band based in Melbourne, Australia.

Winners of The Age Music Victoria Award for Best Indigenous Act 2014. Nominated for “Band of the Year” in the prestigious Deadly Awards in 2007.

The Deans of Soul combine soul, funk and old school R & B influences to create a modern Melbourne soul sound, with velvet smooth vocals, sweet harmonies, soaring heartbreak guitar, deep Motown bass grooves and hip-shaking rhythms.

They released a new single "A Common Theme" in April 2022, with another song “I Don’t Want to Lose You” that followed. And their last album "Equal" was released on The Bad Apples Distribution in October 2019 and is still available online.

The Deans of Soul are like a United Nations of Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Australians unified in the one Soul groove:

With Linc Yow Yeh - Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist. Master of the Stratocaster.

Bradley Boon - Drums. Brad is a Kurnai man from Gippsland. He lays down the heartbeat with a groovy fatback feel.

Nick Larkins - Bass. Nick is a musical nomad from Tasmania who has played with ARIA award winning acts Wild Pumpkins At Midnight, Dan Rumour (The Cruel Sea) and others.

The Deans also feature the heartbreaking vocals of soul divas Sophie Dickson & Sophie Agostinello, the melodic keys of Phoebe Elsworth, and horn players Emelia Wilmot and Basil Byrne.

The Deans of Soul are playing a couple of gigs coming up at Northcote Social Club on Wednesday the 15th of February 2023, supporting Facebook - Dean Brady Official and at the St Kilda Festival on Saturday the 18th of February 2023 for First Nations Day.
