Current Black Rockers?

Are there black rock artists and bands signed to major labels? Lenny, Gary Clark, Jr. and Alabama Shakes come to mind, but surely I'm missing a bunch at the moment, right? I think Living Colour is independent now, but I could be wrong. Janelle?

Exactly. That's why I'm trying to figure out how many are actually signed to a major label. Endangered, almost extinct species!

Good choice but they're on an Indie label, right, or is it a subsidiary of a major label?

Besides the few listed, i can't think of any. As we all know, the music business ain't like it used to be.


So, the band The Quart Of Blood Technique have a new album out. And it's more than pretty damn good. it came out yesterday and i must have played it about 10 times already. it should be on all the major streaming sites. The brothers could use your support. Check out the song Beauty for Ashes. That fucker's been on my mind all day....


These are some of their older songs. The songs on the new album(Sadness in the Garden) are less punkier and more melodic and heavy.
