Fantastic Negrito is following us on twitter. In case you weren’t aware, he won the 2015 NPR Tiny Desk Concert Contest that many indie bands entered. Who is Fantastic Negrito? He was born in Massachusetts but later moved to Oakland, CA at 12 and after learning every instrument he could play at age 20, received a record deal and moved to Hollywood. The record deal ended up being a disaster and he then experienced a near fatal car accident that put him in a coma and mangled his playing hand. After moving back to Oakland he is now singing and recording music – but this time on his own terms and from the heart.
He considers his style black roots and there is a definite Delta Blues feel going on in his material. We are happy to share a couple of tracks from Fantastic Negrito for this week’s Twitter Tuesday feature.
As always, if you are a band or artist and would like to be considered for Twitter Tuesday, all you have to do is follow @therevue on twitter. We will take a listen and if we like, share your music right here.
If you dig and like Fantastic Negrito, go follow him, like him or better yet go purchase his EP or buy some cool merch here. We are also linking his actual REAL Tiny Desk Concert he did after winning the contest.
