In my not so humble opinion, Jack White is responsible for creating some of the most inspired music of the 21st century. He also happens to be one of the hardest working musicians in rock n roll at the moment. Whether he’s playing under the guise of the White Stripes, the Raconteurs, or the Dead Weather, White’s music demands that you stop and pay attention. One of White’s frequent partners in crime, Jack Lawrence(photo), affectionately known as “Little Jack” (we all know who “Big Jack” is in this case), is the bespectacled long-haired bass player in both the Dead Weather and the Raconteurs where he shares duties in the rhythm section with longtime accomplice, drummer Patrick Keeler. Before their involvement with Jack White, with whom they first worked together on Loretta Lynn’s White-produced 2004 LP Van Lear Rose, Lawrence and Keeler had played together with singer/guitarist Craig Fox in the Ohio-based band the Greenhornes, a stoner/garage rock outfit with three full length releases to their credit. Lawrence and Keeler’s involvement with Jack White and friends essentially put the Greenornes project on the back burner for the latter half of the past decade, but in 2010 the band returned with a new album “Four Stars” (literally, “****”), definitely a sleeper hit for the year, and a supporting tour.
Already the subject of much industry hype before they’d barely had time to build a website, you might forgive Slough-based rising stars Brother (Leonard Newell, Josh Ward, Samuel Jackson, Frank Colucci) for attempting to avoid the tag of the ‘next big thing’. Not a bit of it. “We’re going to embrace it and prove them right,” singer Lee Newell told Live4ever in a recent exclusive interview. It sets the tone for a chat which showcases all the confidence and passion of a band destined for big things.
