The Black Keys Caricature. The Black Keys are an American rock band formed in Akron, Ohio, in 2001. The group consists of Patrick Carney (drums) and Dan Auerbach (guitar, vocals), shown here in 2011.
The group's name “the Black Keys” came from an artist diagnosed with schizophrenia, Alfred McMoore, that the pair knew; he would leave incoherent messages on their answering machines referring to their fathers as “black keys” such as “D flat” when he was upset with them.
The band's raw blues rock sound draws heavily from Auerbach's blues influences, including Junior Kimbrough, Howlin' Wolf, and Robert Johnson.
Friends since childhood, Auerbach and Carney founded the group after dropping out of college. After signing with indie label Alive, they released their debut album, “The Big Come Up” (2002).
Albums such as “Thickfreakness”, “Rubber Factory”, “Attack and Release” earned them an underground fanbase and some critical acclaim.
The group's commercial breakthrough came in 2010 with “Brothers”, which along with its popular single “Tighten Up”, won three Grammy Awards. Their 2011 follow-up album “El Camino” received strong reviews and peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 chart, leading to the first arena concert tour of the band's career, the El Camino Tour. The album and its hit single “Lonely Boy” won three Grammy Awards. In 2014, they released their eighth album, “Turn Blue”, their first number-one record in the US, Canada, and Australia.
In 2015, the band's eighth studio album, “Turn Blue” was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album, with “Fever” being nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Rock Song as well as the Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance.
The Black Keys top 10 hits: “Little Black Submarines”, “Tighten Up”, “Gold On The Ceiling”, “Lonely Boy”, “Everlasting Light”, “Weight Of Love”, “I Got Mine”, “Thickfreakness”, “10am Automatic” and “Howling For You”.
The band still continues to tour as well as Dan Auerbach's occasional solo tours.
