The Record Company is a rock/blues/roots trio based in Los Angeles. Steeped in the classic sounds of Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker along with the raw rock and roll of The Stooges and The Yardbirds, The Record Company have burst onto the scene in a very short time.
Their live show has quickly become acclaimed throughout North America and has drawn capacity audiences from Los Angeles to Montreal. With their debut EP Superdead, released in September 2012, the band has received strong airplay at AAA and college radio throughout the United States and Canada and have been featured on L.A. Weekly, Time Out L.A. and XPN/The Key. 2013 has seen the band appearing at Montreal Jazz Festival, Summerfest (Milwaukee), Quebec City International Summer Festival, Ottawa Bluesfest, and Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival amongst others as well as supporting B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Robert Randolph, and Mesell D’dgeocello amongst others. The follow-up EP “Feels So Good” will be released on November 19th, 2013.
The band has received wide exposure through the use of their song “Feels So Good” in the theatrical trailer for the movie “Last Vegas” starring Robert DeNiro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Kline. The trailer began airing July 22nd, 2013 and will run up through the movie’s release date in November, 2013. See the trailer here (the song runs from :29-:59): “Last Vegas” trailer
The band has also gained a new fanbase by way of their cover of the Grateful Dead’s “New Speedway Boogie”, which was chosen by The Dead as one of the top covers of their “Dead Covers Project”. The band is being featured by The Dead on their website (dead.net) for the month of July 2013.
While never trying to simply emulate the great masters, the band have found their own fresh take on the music and can best be described as a group giving a 21st century nod to a timeless art form.
