Guitarist, singer-songwriter and producer Daniel Lanois (1951) is a musicians' musician. He has produced albums with big names like Bob Dylan, Robbie Robertson, Emmylou Harris and U2. In 2009, he formed the group Black Dub centering around Belgian-American singer Trixie Whitley (1987), daughter of the late singer-songwriter Chris Whitley (who was also discovered by Lanois). Lanois himself is responsible for the echoing guitar parts. The drum kit is manned by none other than Brian Blade (1970). Blade, a jazz drummer from Louisiana, has been a member of the Wayne Shorter Quartet since 2000. He has also worked with, among others, Herbie Hancock, Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris and Bob Dylan. At the urging of his friend Lanois, Blade has also recorded several solo albums as a singer-songwriter. Last year, Black Dub released its titleless debut CD, with rocking guitars, soulful vocals and subtle jazz and reggae rhythms. The production process could be followed on YouTube and resulted in a great many enthusiastic reactions.
