Produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, Cadillac Sky’s new album, Letters In the Deep, is now set for a summer release. You can catch the trad-bluegrass-rock band –– featuring frontman Bryan Simpson from Fort Worth –– a couple of months earlier at McDavid Studio in Sundance Square. The album will be released through a “unique partnership deal” with Dualtone Music, according to the Nashville-based entertainment company whose roster includes Guy Clark and Charlie Robison. Apparently, “unique partnership” means that Cadillac Sky will still be “owning and controlling [its] music,” according to the band’s manager.

In the studio in Auerbach’s hometown of Akron, Ohio, the band “rose to the occasion,” according to Auerbach. “There’s some really beautiful songs on Letters In the Deep. It is as much of a living album as it is an art piece, and I’m definitely proud to have my name attached to this project. Whatever genre it is, it’s a really great album, and I’m happy that I got to make it.”


The McDavid show is Wed., March 3.
