L.A.-based buzz band The Record Company released Give It Back to You earlier this year.

The rock/roots trio of Chris Vos (guitar, lead vocals, harmonica), Alex Stiff (bass, guitar, vocals) and Marc Cazorla (drums, piano, vocals) have been hailed by LA Weekly for making bluesy music that would sound more at home in a sweaty, backwoods Mississippi juke joint, while Time Out Los Angeles has 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, with influences from early electric blues, blues legends like Hooker, Muddy Waters and Jimmy Reed, and bands like the Stones and The Stooges.

Wherever it originates, the trio have come up with a fresh take on classic rock 'n' roll that has proven appeal, having 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.
