Whether it’s playing guitar with Brownout or producing records by Third Root and Grupo Fantasma, Austin’s Adrian Quesada is a busy man. Last year, a break in his schedule found him writing some psychedelic soul songs, but he needed a singer. Enter Austin’s Eric Burton, and together, they’re Black Pumas. Psychedelic Soul.
Recorded at Quesada’s studio, Black Pumas’ debut is out summer 2019. Quesada finds it thrilling to start from the ground-up again. “It’s exciting to make new music, you know,” he says.
