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 new EP Superdead, the band has been receiving 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 will see the band appearing at Montreal Jazz Festival, Summerfest (Milwaukee), Quebec City International Summer Festival, Ottawa Bluesfest, and Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival amongst others.
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.
