Daniel Quine “Dan” Auerbach (born May 14, 1979) is an American musician and record producer best known as the guitarist and vocalist for The Black Keys, a blues rock band from Akron, Ohio. As a member of the band, Auerbach has recorded and co-produced seven studio albums with his bandmate Patrick Carney.
In 2009, Auerbach released a solo album entitled Keep It Hid. In addition to winning several Grammy Awards as a member of The Black Keys, Auerbach received the 2013 Grammy Award for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical for co-producing his band’s 2011 album El Camino, and for producing records by Dr. John (Locked Down) and Hacienda. In Spring 2015, Auerbach announced a new side-project, The Arcs. The group released their debut album, Yours, Dreamily, on September 4, 2015.
The album originated as an Auerbach solo project but morphed into a collaborative effort, with musicians Leon Michels, Richard Swift, Homer Steinweiss, and Nick Movshon. All members of the band share songwriting credit for the album. It was recorded over two weeks at the Sound Factory in Los Angeles, Electric Lady Studios in New York, Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, and the Sound Mine in New York. Auerbach and Michels co-produced the album, and Tchad Blake mixed it. The New York-based all-female mariachi band Mariachi Flor de Toloache perform backing vocals on several album tracks and the lead vocals on “Chains of Love”.
