Jack White Produces & Plays Drums, Guitar on New Smoke Fairies 7″


When Jessica Davies and Katherine Blamire spotted Jack White among the crowd of a London bar, the pair were determined to catch the ears of the famous Third Man Records CEO, White Stripes, Dead Weather, and Raconteurs member, and worthy candidate for the “Savior of Rock” title. According to God Is In The TV, Davies and Blamire, the singer/guitarists behind folky duo the Smoke Fairies, convinced the DJ to spin one of their tracks before passing Jack White a CD and glass of Whiskey. Well played, ladies.

Jack called them up later, offering plane tickets to Nashville to record with himself (on drums, guitar, and timpani), “Little Jack” Lawrence, Corey Younts, and Shelby O’Neal as a backing band for what would become a “Gastown”/ “The River Song” 7” due out on iTunes and limited vinyl Dec. 7th.
