People I Like: Dan Auerbach & Patrick Carney
Two of the coolest guys you’ll ever hear about, vocalist/guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer/producer Patrick Carney, are the two members of The Black Keys; one of the bands I wanted to mention in my last post who also have a new album coming out in May called Brothers which I’m fired up about.
Here’s the video for the first single off the album, “Tighten Up”
Yes, yes, they got soul.
Apart from The Black Keys, Auerbach and Carney each have different projects which they’ve been involved in. Auerbach released a solo album last year titled Keep It Hid. Check out this video for “Heartbroken, In Disrepair” below, and listen to more of his solo work HERE.
Carney also released an album in 2009 called Feel Good Together, with his own band, Drummer. Which, not surprisingly, has a more upbeat sound:
BUT as if that wasn’t enough for these guys, they also teamed up with 11 of hip hop’s most talented artists to create BlakRoc, which was ALSO released in 2009. Talk about a busy year, right?
Artists on the album include: Mos Def, Raekwon, Q-Tip, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, RZA, Jim Jones, Nicole Wray, NOE, Pharoahe Monch, Billy Danze, and Ludacris. Proving that rock ‘n’ roll and hip hop can be fused together with great success. Check it out.
So in conclusion, Dan Auerbach and Partick Carney are two guys that always bring the funk, in whatever they do :P
Don’t forger to check out their new album May 18th!!!
That is all. :)
