Fantastic Negrito At SXSW

Blues singer/musician Fantastic Negrito appeared at SXSX this year and performed a 41-minute set on the Radio Day Stage. The Oakland native has been quietly infiltrating the world of music with his painful but powerful version of the blues. Last year he released his self-titled EP,  he won the NPR Tiny Desk Contest and had the #1 blues single on iTunes. “Working Poor” is his new single and he dedicates the song to “the millions of people who work two and three jobs and still can’t make ends meet. It’s for everyone who woke up one day and couldn’t afford to live in the cities they grew up in.”
