Soulful gig from Meena Cryle & Chris Fillmore Band at Meisenfrei, Bremen DE on 2015-11-17. Chris Fillmore Band is Chris Fillmore (g), Frank Cortez (dr) and Joris Hendrik (b).
Producer legend Jim Gaines (Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Lee Hooker, Santana,…) once praised Meena Cryle as „one of the best singers I`ve worked with in 20 years. She is what we call in the business an `old soul`. She`s got the voice and she`s got the passion…“.
Chris Fillmore (electric and acoustic guitars, slide-guitar, pedal- steel) is more than just an outstanding guitar player, songwriter, arranger and co-producer, he forms – together with Meena – the foundation of the band. The special thing about him is the fact he doesn´t boast with his talent. Because there´s no need for him – he is technically brilliant. He know´s how to play his instrument since he was a little boy, inspired by Elvis Presley, Stevie Ray Vaughan or John Lee Hooker.
