In 2006, Scott Butler, Landon Thompson, and John Aldridge formed The Black & White Years. Discovered at SXSW in 2007 by Talking Heads’ and Modern Lovers’ Jerry Harrison, the group debuted their first full-length, Harrison-produced record only a few months later. Following the success of their introductory LP, they fronted the national stages of CMJ Music Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest and Austin City Limits Music Festival, not to mention London’s Wireless Festival and Cannes’ MIDEM — where drummer Billy Potts climbed aboard. They became a fivesome when Scott’s wife Adrienne decided to give singing a try.
