Additional Information

The Record Company arrived right when they were needed most, their raw and righteous rock ‘n’ roll ideal for a world that desperately needs to scream and shout. The Los Angeles-based trio – Chris Vos (guitar, lead vocals, harmonica), Alex Stiff (bass, guitar, vocals) and Marc Cazorla (drums, piano, vocals) – unleashed its Concord Records debut album, Give It Back to You, on February 12, 2016 and has been nominated for a GRAMMY Award in the category of Best Contemporary Blues Album. “Off The Ground,” the album’s first single, proved a sensation, spending two consecutive weeks as the #1 track.

The Record Company’s popular success was matched with enthusiastic critical acclaim. “Caught halfway between the stomp of mid-century rock & roll and the soulful kick of Delta blues, The Record Company kick up a raw, rootsy racket,” raved Rolling Stone. “The scuzzy, 10-track set meshes the group’s biggest influences,” wrote Entertainment Weekly of Give It Back to You, “the early electric blues rock n’ roll of John Lee Hooker, staccato lyrical delivery akin to The Stooges frontman Iggy Pop, and Rolling Stones-style grooves.”

Long known for their incendiary live sets, the band has toured nearly non-stop in the months following the release of Give It Back to You. They proved favorites at this year’s Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, prompting Rolling Stone Country to name the trio’s set among the event’s “5 Best Country and Americana Moments” while declaring it “a wildly energetic show and one of the most communal experiences of the festival.”

They embarked on their first ever headline tour in the fall of 2016, selling out 32 out of the 41 shows they played – including the Bowery Ballroom in NYC, the El Rey Theater in LA, World Café Live in Philadelphia, Turner Hall in Milwaukee, and Antone’s in Austin amongst others.

What’s more, The Record Company have rocked the airwaves with a series of high profile TV appearances, including CBS’ Late Show with Stephen Colbert and TBS’ Conan, not to mention countless radio sessions and live concert broadcasts on SiriusXM, NPR’s World Café Live, and Chicago, IL’s WXRT.

The Record Company has also found themselves supporting and playing alongside a series of national and international tours and shows with a diverse group of legends and like-minded artists they admire including Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Dawes, BB King, Kurt Vile, Mavis Staples, Social Distortion, and Blackberry Smoke.
