Voodoo 2013 VIDEO: The Black Cadillacs on Making New Fans, Perseverence & Creative Honesty

Last weekend’s trip to New Orleans was an absolute blast, covering the Voodoo 2013 festival where Pearl JamNine Inch NailsReignwolf and more rocked our faces off. While on site we conducted a barrage of interviews with a bunch of our favorite artists on the Voodoo Fest bill, including a band we’ve recently discovered and cannot get enough of: Knoxville blues-driven indie rockers The Black Cadillacs.

On the road in support of their first label release Run, The Black Cadillacs played an early Sunday slot at Voodoo Fest, converting new fans with alarming ease as they tore through a set of psychedelically-laced rock that we’re excited as hell to dig deeper into. Shortly after their performance, we met up with the guys backstage for a discussion on making new fans, their creative process, new material and how to exist in the rip-roaring blues-rock spectrum without sounding like Jack White or Black Keys disciples.

Now if you’ll excuse us, it’s time to dig into this J. Roddy Walston & The Business band we keep hearing about. In the meantime, keep up with The Black Cadillacs at their official site.
