Daniel Lanois discovered Chris Whitley in 1988, helped him get a record deal and produced his first album.
Chris Whitley (and his Belgian wife) produced a daughter in 1988.
Her name is Trixie Whitley, she grew up in Belgium and – after her father’s death in 2005 – met Daniel Lanois backstage at a concert in Ghent, their first encounter in almost 2 decades.
He listened to the EP that she’d given him, called her and formed Black Dub around her.
Saw them last night at the Centralstation in Darmstadt.
Jesus – how did I miss her? thanks for that JB
