L.A.-based buzz bandThe Record Companyhas signed with Concord Music Group, which is releasing its debut albumGive It Back to Youon February 12, 2016.The rock/roots trio ofChris Vos(guitar, lead vocals, harmonica),Alex Stiff(bass, guitar, vocals) andMarc Cazorla(drums, piano, vocals) has already been hailed byLA Weeklyfor "making bluesy music that would sound more at home in a sweaty, backwoods Mississippi juke joint," whileTime Out Los Angeleshas described their sound as "reminiscent of some of the best acts of the '50s and '60s-like if John Lee Hooker and the Stooges had a well-behaved love child."The comparisons are apt."We have been influenced by early electric blues, so some of that influence certainly shows," acknowledges Vos. "But we're just as influenced by bands like the Stones and The Stooges as we are by blues legends like Hooker, Muddy Waters and Jimmy Reed."Wherever it comes from, Vos, Stiff and Cazorla have clearly come up with a fresh take on classic rock 'n' roll that has proven appeal: Their music, well ahead of a record deal, has been featured in over 30 commercial, film, and television placementsincluding the theatrical trailer forLast Vegasand ads forCoors Light, Subaru, Showtime'sShameless, ABC'sNashville, CBS'sCSI: Crime Scene Investigationand a current ad for Miller Lite.Meanwhile, The Record Company has developed a reputation as a live act worthy of sharing the stage with such top attractions as B.B. King, Grace Potter, Trombone Shorty, Buddy Guy, Charles Bradley, Robert Randolph, The Wood Brothers, Social Distortion, and Blackberry Smoke-with whom they toured the U.K. and Europe. On the strength of two EPs (Superdead, released in 2012, andFeels So Good, in 2013), the band received strong college and Triple A radio format airplay and performed at the Montreal Jazz Festival, Milwaukee's Summerfest, NAPA Valley's Bottlerock, Ottawa Folkfest, the Quebec City International Summer Festival and the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival.The themes and stories in the lyrics of the songs are all draw from the threesome's collective experiences.They settled on the band's name after discovering that The Record Company was somehow available."We all agreed right away that it had to be the name," says Vos. "Given the way we started, where we are from, and what we love to play, it makes perfect sense."But making records notwithstanding, it's playing live that sets this Record Company apart."I always think of a performance as onelesstime on stage-not one more," Vos concludes. "Nobody can say how many shows you get to play in your life. So we try to play our guts out,leave it all on the table, and have fundoing it."
