Dan Auerbach Keep it Hid

Written during the recording sessions for the Black Keys’ 2008 album Attack & ReleaseKeep It Hid marks the first solo release for the band’s guitarist and singer Dan Auerbach. With five group albums already under his belt, Auerbach takes on a much more diverse role with Keep It Hid, performing the majority of the instrumental roles throughout the album. There are exceptions however, as Auerbach’s uncle James Quine, drummer Bob Cesare and singer/songwriter Jessica Lea Mayfield all contribute throughout. Having already produced Mayfield’s debut album there, Keep It Hid was recorded and engineered by Auerbach at his personal Akron Analog studio.
