A resident of Nashville since 2005, Jack White is one of the most prolific and renowned artists of the past fifteen years. When the White Stripes started in 1997 no one ever expected that a red-and-white two-piece band would take hold in the mainstream world. With the release of 2001’s White Blood Cells the band was thrust on magazine covers and captivating audiences through worldwide touring. To date White has won nine Grammys in seven different categories.
White formed a “new band of old friends” the Raconteurs in 2006 and their debut album Broken Boy Soldiers showed a markedly different side, most notably one where songwriting, vocal and guitar duties were shared. The success of their debut-single “Steady, As She Goes” proved that White’s previous accomplishments were no fluke. To take it even further, in 2009 White took to his original instrument, the drums, and started the Dead Weather with members of the Kills, Queens of the Stone Age and the Greenhornes. Releasing two albums in two years and unleashing a dark, captivating live show upon curious audiences, the Dead Weather futher-cemented Jack White’s musical versatility and range.
In January 2012 White announced the upcoming release of his debut album Blunderbuss which will be accompanied by extensive touring across the world.
Many people know U.K. indie soul-rock titans The Heavy for “How You Like Me Now?," their infectious anthem that took the world by storm. Since the 4-piece band's rise to notoriety, they've gone on to play gigs in all four corners on the globe, and even wowed David Letterman (Letterman has only requested an encore twice, both times for The Heavy). 'The Glorious Dead,' released on Counter Records this past August, isn’t just The Heavy’s third full-length album: it’s also the group’s most ambitious effort, traveling sonically from the group’s South England home to America’s deep South, and beyond.
