The Decoders are Los Angeles-based production team Itai Shapira (producer/engineer & studio/live musician), Todd M. Simon (trumpeter/arranger for Mayer Hawthorne, TV On The Radio, The Lions, Quantic, etc.) and Adam Berg (Grammy-nominated engineer/producer/keys), with contributions from Quincy McCrary on keys (Mayer Hawthorne), Tom Lea on strings (Rhye, Quadron, Ana Tijoux) and Blake Colie on drums (The Lions) . The Decoders have released their first installment of modern-Jamaican Lovers Rock-inspired versions of soul classics they dug up from the vaults of the Music Sales publishing catalogue.

Volume 2 will feature noteworthy guest vocalists Noelle Scaggs (of Fitz & The Tantrums), Raul Midon, Alex Isley and many more...
