"What Chuck Auerbach is is a songwriter. The guy with a self-professed love for words knows how to use them, and clearly loves to work without a net. Witness his tune "Desperation,'' a sense we all feel at some time. Its opening line:

"Gonna drink a beer with Jesus / The only one ain't mad at me.''

Or a line a little deeper into the song:

"Spent my whole life celebratin' / How far a man could fall.''

That's an angst that just can't come from a 20-something, and even if a kid could conceive of it, would he - or she - have the guts to embrace it as a lyric? The rockers and mainstream country singers of today moan about their girlfriends leaving them, or maybe running out of beer. They really haven't lived enough to know real pain."

....

"His delivery has a sameness from song to song, and there's not going to be a lot of octave-stretching. Yet there's a sincerity in every note that creates a depth Pavarotti wouldn't get.

And a sense of humor, too."

 Chuck Auerbach at the Driskill on March 17th, 2018. Koury Angelo     one of the 30 best artists at SXSW  The sons and daughters of music celebrities often work the halls and stages of SXSW. But Chuck Auerbach of Akron, Ohio was a rare sighting: a rock star's dad. Perched on a stool and consulting a binder of lyric sheets as he sang through a long, gray field of beard, Auerbach – the father of the Black Keys'  Dan Auerbach  – looked like the late Atlantic Records producer Jerry Wexler and led his five-piece band through rueful country ballads and earthy R&B in a grizzled voice that suggested Tom Waits with a dash of the singer from Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show (the one without the eye patch). "Desperation" was a dark jewel lashed with throaty-treble guitar; the first two verses of "My Old Man" were a memory lane of plaintive growl and upright bass, before the light rain of bittersweet fiddle and electric piano rolled in. Chuck was performing songs from a new album,  Remember Me , produced by Dan.   (From  Rolling Stone )
