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 Grammy stage. On the way he won the NPR Tiny Desk Contest and toured the world, playing alongside artists ranging from Chris Cornell to Solange to Sturgill Simpson.
 
Fantastic Negrito’s latest release Please Don't Be Dead was nominated for a 2019 Grammy for the Best Contemporary Blues Album. ”The last album was more observational," says Negrito. "On this one I'm bringing the fight."
