Fantastic Negrito

Artist Bio

When you listen to Fantastic Negrito, you’re invited to hear the story of life after destruction. Each song is a real story about a musician from Oakland who experienced the highs of a million-dollar record deal, the lows of a near fatal car accident that left him in a coma, and is now in the midst of a rebirth that took him from the streets of Oakland to the world stage.
The narrative of this man is as important as the sound, because the narrative is the sound. Songs born from a long hard life channeled through black roots music. Slide guitar, drums, piano. Urgent, desperate, edgy.
Negrito burst on to the national radar by winning the inaugural NPR Tiny Desk contest in 2015, and has since won 3 Grammys for his first three albums: The Last Days of Oakland (2017), Please Don’t Be Dead (2019) and Have You Lost Your Mind Yet? (2020). The latest includes features from fellow Tiny Desk winner Tank (Tank and the Bangas) and Bay Area legend E-40.
Fantastic Negrito has recently launched his own record label, Storefront Records, based in his home town of West Oakland and is working on his new album that will be the label’s first release.
