Jack White Debuts Nashville HQ and New Band

Already balancing two successful bands, the White Stripes and the Raconteurs, and various side projects including a recent recording and video shoot with country’s Ricky Skaggs and Ashley Monroe, rock star and Music City resident Jack White has embarked on yet additional adventures. White has established a headquarters for his Third Man Records label and recording/photography studio in downtown Nashville. The new Third Man Records building houses label offices, a vinyl record store, a photo studio and a performance stage.

White’s new band, The Dead Weather features lead singer Alison Mosshart of The Kills, Queens of the Stone Age guitarist Dean Fertita and White’s fellow Raconteur Jack Lawrence on bass. White plays drums and sings in the new band. Last night (3/11), in their first public performance, The Dead Weather played songs from their already-completed debut album, the White-produced Horehound, for about 150 fans. Among those fans was another Nashville-based rocker, Sheryl Crow and country star Martina McBride. In yet another country music connection, The Oak Ridge Boys have recorded a version of the White Stripes hit, “Seven Nation Army.”

Third Man plans a June release for Horehound. “This band is the first project to come out of this new system, which is our new studio in town and this building,” White said.
