Are you ready for Black Pumas premiere show in Croatia? Cause they surely are - fast forward to July 27th at St. Michael's Fortress!
The Austin based band, for whom critics predict a great future, was founded in 2018 when the spark happend on the first encounter between Eric Burton and Adrian Quesada. As they say, their swift success occurred thanks to an almost mystical music connection. It all started when the experienced guitarist, producer, and Grammy award winner – Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma, Brownout) went on a quest to find a vocalist who would fit into a new musical chapter of instrumentals that Quesada had been working on independently. After an aimless search for a voice of distinct emotions, Quesada found Eric Burton through a joint acquaintance. Burton obtained musical experience in gospel acts and theater stagings, as well as street performances in Santa Monica
During their initial studio gig, Adrian and Eric recorded their first singles – Black Moon Rising and Fire, in one day alone. Shortly after that, they formed Black Pumas, who gained huge popularity in Austin. The proof was the Band of the Year award they won in 2019 at the prestigious Austin Music Awards ceremony. Burton quickly presented some of his own songs that additionally refined the band with different music influences. One of those songs was Colors which Eric wrote on a sunny afternoon on the roof of his uncle's house. The song went viral and today has over 34 million streams. With it, Black Pumas started this year as nominees for the Grammy award in Best New Artist category and presented themselves on TV shows worldwide, from Ellen to Jimmy Fallon.
'Wu-Tang Clan meets James Brown' represents a vivid review by the Californian KVRW radio for the band's interesting musical influences. Shortly after the release of their debut album Black Pumas under the ATO Label (a label that houses Alabama Shakes, Lee Ann Womack, and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard), the entire music scene started fighting for them.
In a packed and carefully arranged schedule for European 2021 tour, St. Michael's Fortress found it's place in a company of much bigger European capitals.
