Meena Cryle & The Chris Fillmore Band

Meena Cryle and Chris Fillmore, the group’s songwriting team, share a deep artistic connection that goes back more than 20 years. Today their understanding is nothing less than intuitive. Southern Soul, Blues, Gospel and Rock’n’Roll – (Americana) are the labels most commonly used to describe this stand-out formation. But the band prefers to avoid clichés and pigeonholing. Their experience on tour and in the studio, both in Europe and the USA, has given them the confidence to follow their own muse. Recent highlights like a sold-out show at the Vienna Opera House or their performance at the Peer Blues Festival (together with acts like Buddy Guy, Walter Trout, …) proves their stand in today`s roots music scene. Producer legend Jim Gaines (Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Lee Hooker, Van Morrison,…) once praised 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…“ Meena Cryle & The Chris Fillmore Band were also runners-up at the European Blues Challenge 2011 in Berlin and went on to receive accolades from the jury and audience at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee in 2013. That same year, Meena was also nominated for the AMADEUS Music Award. There is an inherent magic that occurs when Meena Cryle & Chris Fillmore take the stage each night. It is an organic, spontaneous, and almost mystical experience to witness. A unique, heavenly, passionate, affecionate team!
