A collaboration between producer and multi-instrumentalist Adrian Quesada and singer/songwriter Eric Burton, Black Pumas fuse cinematic neo-soul, light psychedelia, and a touch of urban grit. Rising from their studio origins to a hard-hitting live act, the group released their debut album in 2019.
Through a mutual friend, Quesada — a Grammy-winning Austin-based producer known for his work with Grupo Fantasma and Brownout — was connected with Burton, who’d been making the rounds in Austin’s singer/songwriter scene since busking his way from Los Angeles in 2015. Burton’s dynamic and soulful vocals were a perfect match for the retro-funk and R&B flavored tracks Quesada, and the two joined forces in 2018 as Black Pumas. Working out their material both in the studio and on-stage during a weekly residency at Austin’s C-Boys Heart & Soul Bar, they signed a deal with ATO Records and released a pair singles “Black Moon Rising” and “Fire” in early 2019. Their debut LP followed in June of that year.
Opening for Black Pumas is local artist James Murray. Drawing from blues, gospel, and jazz, James explores a new direction of soul music. His openness as a songwriter has a unique way of pairing with the deep grooves and convictions of the genre.
