From a million record deal to a near-fatal car crash, to a second consecutive Grammy Award-winning album, Fantastic Negrito has a plethora of fascinating stories to tell. A Boy Named Andrew is an invitation to hear the story of life after destruction.

Taking the blues scene by storm, Fantastic Negrito has brought his rock-blues mix to life through his latest cinematic, dark yet vibrant music video shot in Milan, Italy. Sonically you hear the emotion but seeing him singing those powerful words just make them resonate so much more.

The honesty and of the lyrics are carried through in the truly moving vocal performance. You can hear Fantastic Negrito tearing his heart out and stomping on it. Throw this in with a protest march and a sexy gritted-up electric guitar and you have the unique magic that won him his second consecutive Grammy Award.
