Dan Auerbach & Robert Finley: Blues Breaker

An old friend of Dan Auerbach’s from the Black Keys, was a comic book artist and a fan of American roots music. When he came up with idea for a graphic novel about a record producer who gets mixed up in a murder, he approached Dan with the idea of creating a soundtrack for the project.  And now it is done.  A five song album that will accompany the graphic novel, either on vinyl or as a digital download.  The album and graphic novel are both called MURDER BALLADS. Four original songs, and one cover, this one, a re-working of one of the grand daddies of folks songs, “In the Pines.” Dan Auerbach is joined on vocals by helicopter pilot and carpenter, Robert Finley, who retired from his day jobs in 2016 to fulfill his lifelong dream of playing the blues.  He made his first record at age 63. He rocks. Dan Auerbach rocks. This rocks. “In the Pines.”

MURDERBALLADS (1)AIR DATES: June 10-11, 2017
