About the Artist

Sturgill Simpson

Visit Artist Website

Sturgill Simpson has emerged as one of music's most inspired and genre-bending artists. Each of Simpson's three universally acclaimed solo albums explore different elements of American music history (bluegrass, country, rock, R&B, soul) and continue to push his work beyond expectations and musical boundaries. His most recent album, 2016's self-produced A Sailor's Guide To Earth, was written—beginning to end—as a letter to his first child and has gone on to garner industry-wide adoration including nominations for both Album of the Year and Best Country Album at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. In the past year since the album's release, Simpson has played over 70 sold-out shows across 12 countries and has performed on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” “Conan,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “Charlie Rose” and, most recently, the 2017 debut episode of "Saturday Night Live." Simpson's 2017 tour will feature material from throughout his catalog and is his way of thanking fans—both old and new—for a series of unprecedented years.

Fantastic Negrito

Fantastic Negrito is a man’s truth told in the form of black roots music. 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 put him in a four-week coma, and is now in the phase of rebirth despite his playing hand being mangled.  While his rebirth began on the streets of Oakland a couple years ago, Fantastic Negrito arrived on the national stage in 2015 when he won the NPR Tiny Desk Contest and watched his self-titled EP ascend to #1 in Blues in the US, UK, Germany and Asia. He followed that up in 2016 with tours throughout Europe and North America with Chris Cornell, and legendary Seattle supergroup Temple of the Dog; and the release of his debut full-length album The Last Days of Oakland, which went on to win Best Contemporary Blues Album at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.
