2017 Grammy Winner FANTASTIC NEGRITO Partners With Cooking Vinyl

“The Last Days Of Oakland is among the rawest pieces of music—sonically and emotionally—you’ll hear all year. But it’s also the work of a craftsman, full of subtlety and sophistication, along with the kind of scars that only a survivor can flaunt.” —NPR Music

“An Oakland musician whose life story…. is fascinating enough but nothing compared to the compelling brilliance of his new album” - The Sunday Times

“The first great album of the post-Prince/post-Ali world... Tremendous” – The Mirror 

“[whimsical vocal acrobat”–The New York Times

Earlier this year, Fantastic Negrito's The Last Days of Oakland took home the Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album Grammy Award. While blues is an integral part of Fantastic Negrito's overall foundation, his music defies genre, blending hip hop, rock, and other styles to create a sound that led Pitchfork's Greil Marcus to say "he could be inventing the blues for the first time."

Last Fall, Xavier made his national television debut as Fantastic Negrito on the season finale of Fox’s Empire, performing both his single “Lost in a Crowd”—the track that brought him to national attention, winning NPR’s inaugural Tiny Desk Concert Contest—and the hit song “Good Enough” alongside “Empire’s” Jamal Lyon.
