Jack White is one of the most prolific and renowned artists of the past fifteen years. When The White Stripes started in 1997 no one, least of all Jack, ever expected that a red, white and black two-piece band would take hold in the mainstream world. The band’s self-titled debut and sophomore effort De Stijl amassed critical acclaim, but it was the release of 2001′s White Blood Cells that thrust the White Stripes onto magazine covers.The release of Elephant in 2003 cemented the band’s reputation as a force to be reckoned with.
Between 2004 and 2009, White embarked on many new projects, including producing and performing on Loretta Lynn’s Van Lear Rose album, forming The Raconteurs in 2006, and forming The Dead Weather with members of The Kills, Queens of the Stone Age and The Greenhornes in 2009. These projects further cemented Jack White’s musical versatility and range. To date, White has won nine GRAMMYs in seven different categories.
On April 24, 2012, White released his debut album Blunderbuss, which debuted at #1 on the U.S. albums chart. The album received a GRAMMY nomination for Album of the Year, as well as Best Rock Album and Best Rock Song for “Freedom at 21.” In 2013, Jack’s cover of Little Willie John’s “I’m Shakin’” was nominated for Best Rock Performance and Best Music Video, bringing Blunderbuss’ GRAMMY nominations to a total of five.
