The powerful voice of Eric Burton caught the attention of Grammy-winning producer Adrian Quesada. At the time, Quesada was searching for a singer to fit the soulful songs he was creating in his Austin studio – Last year, they formed Black Pumas. The pair stops by today to share the story that brought them together. And we’ll also learn about their unique backgrounds – Eric was raised in a self-described nomadic family, and Adrian grew up in the trucking industry. Plus, Black Pumas perform a set from their self-titled debut, live. On the next World Cafe with host Talia Schlanger.
World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App from the App Store & Google Play.
