As frontman from the Dark Tips, vocalist/guitarist Dan Auerbach embraced the organic sound of electrical blues-rock alongside drummer Pat Carney. The Ohio-based music group released a string of acclaimed albums through the early 2000s, like the Best 20 hit Strike & Discharge, before Auerbach opted to branch out using a concurrent single career. Having constructed his own studio room in Akron, Ohio, the songwriter started recording new materials that melded his bluesy history with components of psychedelia, nation, and gospel. Documenting sessions occurred through the downtime between your Dark Tips’ tour schedules, and Auerbach shortly compiled enough materials to get a debut record. The ensuing record, Maintain It Hid, premiered in ’09 2009 by non-esuch Records. Following the discharge of Maintain It Hid, Auerbach came back to the Dark Keys as well as the duo broke in to the mainstream with 2010’s Brothers and 2011’s Un Camino. The group’s achievement opened the entranceway for more innovative collaborations for Auerbach and he seized them, creating everybody through the garage rock-band Reigning Sound to New Orleans R&B tale Dr. John. The Dark Keys took a protracted break after 2014’s Switch Blue, which year also noticed Auerbach’s biggest productions up to now: Lana Del Rey’s Ultraviolence, Ray LaMontagne’s Supernova, and Nikki Lane’s debut All or Nothin’. In 2015, he shaped the sideband the Arcs, who released Yours, Dreamily, that season. Auerbach teamed using the Pretenders’ because of their 2016 album By itself before returning within the springtime of 2017 with Waiting around on a Tune, his second single record.
