Meena Cryle & The Chris Fillmore Band create an exceptionally honest and exciting brand of music.
Southern Soul, Blues, Gospel and Rock´n´Roll are the labels most commonly used to describe this stand-out formation from Austria. But the band prefers to avoid clichés and pigeonholing.
Cryle/Fillmore’s Roots-Cosmos is wide-ranging and eclectic but always deeply rooted in the Blues.
This also shows in their songwriting, an indispensable part of a distinctive and unique musical identity.
Chris Fillmore, a exceptionally gifted guitar-player, plays a far more important role for the overall musical concept than just being a supportive piece of the band’s whole. He acts as a pivotal figure, an anchor which allows the singer to freely explore, and a safe-haven she can return to again.
Both form a team that, in its intensity, is an exceptional and rare thing in today’s Blues-scene.
