You know that person who shows up everywhere with their acoustic guitar and asks you to listen to their songs? Well maybe you should give them a chance before telling them no immediately ... you never know who they might turn out to be.
Before Black Pumas were Grammy nominees - heck before Eric Burton moved to Austin and met Adrian Quesada and formed a band together - he was busy busking and playing backyard BBQs.
Luckily - a friend decided to film one of those performances - and the band has recently shared the 2014 of Eric perforning a stripped-down version of the song “Colors” :
Eric Burton (of Black Pumas) - Colors (Live in 2014)
OK - so maybe not EVERYONE who asks you to listen to their music will turn out to be a Grammy nominee - but you never know ...
