Hailing from Akron, Ohio, The Black Keys is Dan Auerbach (guitars and vocals) and Patrick Carney (drums). As part of the heavily blues-based garage rock revival, the duo has sold millions of records in its decade of recording and touring. From festival headlining to national ad campaigns, The Black Keys has gone from indie buzz band to sometimes controversial major player earning honor from the classic artists that have paved the way.
Many such classic artists with hefty blues credentials appear on Black On Blues. The legendary Iggy Pop (of the Stooges) performs with epic drummer Ginger Baker (Cream, Blind Faith). Dave Davies (The Kinks), Walter Trout, Oli Brown Band, Cyril Neville and Devon Allman also perform on the record.
Black On Blues was mastered by Grammy Award-winner Brian Lucey, who has mastered several of The Black Keys albums, including the most recent, El Camino.
