Producer on road to recovery

Daniel Lanois has confirmed a two night stand at London venue The Jazz Cafe.

One of the most highly regarded producers on the planet, Daniel Lanois has helped push U2 and Bob Dylan in new directions. His attention to details is matched by a sensitive approach to songwriting, allowing the artist time to focus on their own desires.

Perhaps this due to his own solo career. Daniel Lanois has released a series of acclaimed solo albums, which mix a sense of Americana to jazz, rock and more. Set to play London last year, the shows were cancelled after the producer suffered a motorcycle accident.

Driving in Los Angeles, Daniel Lanois was involved in a serious collision which left him severely injured. Hospitalised, the producer was forced to cancel all prior engagements in an effort to get well.

Now on the road to recovery, Daniel Lanois has reformed his Black Dub project. An eclectic set of musicians, the group is helmed by Lanois who is joined by jazz drummer Brian Blade and vocalist Trixie Whitley.

The trio have been working on new material, which in many ways is indebted to jazz in terms of its improvised approach. However there are elements of rockabilly in there, with a very direct and energetic take on Americana.

Black Dub are set to play a series of European dates this summer, and Daniel Lanois has confirmed a return to London. Once again promising to visit the Jazz Cafe, the producer will play two nights at the venue.

Taking place on July 31st and August 1st, Black Dub will play new material alongside a few other surprises. Support will come from Rocco DeLuca, while tickets are on sale now.

If you fancy travelling, Black Dub are set to play a number of European shows over the summer including Montreux Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam and many more.

Black Dub are due to play the following shows:
