The Record Company is an American power trio rock band formed in Los Angeles. The members are Chris Vos (guitar, lead vocals), Alex Stiff (bass, backing vocals), and Mark Cazorla (drums, backing vocals). Their music is influenced by blues musicians like John Lee Hooker,[1] early punk bands like The Stooges, and rock bands like The Rolling Stones. Their sound incorporates slide guitar, distorted bass, a Ludwig drum kit and the vocals of Chris Vos, who grew up on a Wisconsin dairy farm.

The three-man group started in late 2011, hanging up old microphones and recording live in the bass player's living room in Los Feliz, California. The Record Company have since played concert halls across North America, opening for acts as diverse as John Mayer, B.B. King, Social Distortion, Buddy Guy, Grace Potter, and Trombone Shorty. The band toured Europe supporting Blackberry Smoke in late 2015.

Their first full-length album Give It Back to You was released on Concord Records on February 12, 2016. Its lead single "Off the Ground" reached #1 on the US Billboard Adult Alternative Songs chart.[2] The band has received critical acclaim from Entertainment Weekly,[3] Paste,[4] The Huffington Post,[5] and Rolling Stone.[6]

Rolling Stone also included The Record Company in their April 2016 list of "10 New Artists You Need to Know."[7]

Give It Back to You was nominated for Best Contemporary Blues Album in the 2017 Grammy Awards, losing to The Last Days of Oakland by Fantastic Negrito.[8]
