Dave Hole will play two concerts Moscow

March 29 2007

Dave Hole (Dave Hole) was born March 30, 1948 in England. Dave Stay in England - he would present at the birth and the future creation of the famous British blues. Perhaps he would have had the opportunity to communicate and collaborate with their peers - Eric Clapton (Eric Clapton) and Jimmy Page (Jimmi Page), which, purely hypothetically, could have an effect on his work ... but fate decreed otherwise and sent Dave a completely different edge . In contrast, Britain is not seen crowds of blues musicians per square meter, and musical traditions differ from the British. So, at the age of four years, Dave Hole found in Australia. That, of course, did not prevent him to become a star.

The future fate of Howl was largely determined in the days when he was a teenager. Once heard from a friend with a record of blues music, Dave was seriously fascinated by this trend and began studying the blues on plates Muddy Waters (Muddy Waters), Blind Willie Johnson (Blind Willie Johnson) and Elmore James (Elmore James). On the guitar he started playing as early as 12 years. Then history happened, which I always remember talking about creative ways this musician. As a teenager, he broke his little finger, and because of this injury he had to work out an unusual technique of slide guitar: it has adapted to move the hand with the plaster on top of the neck, not under it, as usual. Later, when his arm healed, re-learn again he no longer wanted. Typically, a slide (metal or ceramic tube) is put on the little finger, Dave went on to put on a slide on his index finger, and his hand was laying on top neck that he looked unusual and attracted attention. In addition, a sound production Olga Arakelyan impact not only the uniqueness of the scenic image, but also the sound, so emerged a kind of inherent only Dave sound.

The musician gave concerts in the Australian club until 1972, then went to their historical homeland, and began to speak in London. In the years to win a huge success failed. But Dave was not discouraged. Two years later he returned to Australia and continued his concert career, mostly in urban areas of Western Australia. Fame came to the artist only in the early 90's. It happened like this: in 1990 at his own expense, Dave recorded the tape in a small studio. A copy he sent to the magazine Guitar Player, from whom he received a glowing review. Then bluesman noticed representatives of the big Chicago firm Alligator, which Hole (the first foreign musician) in 1991 signed a contract. His album «Short Fuse Blues» (Blues short-circuit) was adopted "with enthusiasm", and then was offered a contract to write other records. The name of the debut album is quite reflect fierce temperament Hope and his powerful, energetic style of performance, causes critics association with Pacific typhoons.

This plate has caused the flow of laudatory reviews in music magazines and a sensation in musical circles. Renowned guitarist Gary Moore (Gary Moore) was so excited by his music, he immediately invited Dave to act as the opening act during his tour. Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett (Kirk Hammett) also admired his manner of playing.

Currently, Dave Hole is one of the leaders of modern elektroslayda. Interestingly, his guitar has a special device that allows, if necessary to change the system by a pair of levers, that is very diverse sound. Continuing to work with Alligator, he released several more albums for the lesser-known blues firms. Over the past 10 years, Dave has participated in many major blues festivals, toured America and Europe, speaking in the most prestigious concert halls and jazz clubs. All the albums recorded by a musician, took the highest position in the ratings.By the way, just that Dave finished recording their new album "Rough Diamond", which has already appeared on sale in Europe. U.S. release is scheduled for May this year, at the same time, it must also appear in our stores, and while the repertoire with a disc can be heard at concerts. Dave Hall has already begun its four-week tour of Europe, and his Moscow concert literally crammed into a busy schedule, painted by day: March 28, he was in Erfurt (Germany), 30 th - the day they are born - will speak at the Blues Festival in Lillehammer (Norway ), the next day - March 31 - will play in Moscow as much as 2 concerts in one evening, and then the indefatigable Dave will continue to tour Europe.
