Belly Hole Freak
Wild Raw Dirty Blues One Man Band
The background of Belly Hole Freak sinks his roots in the most rural, raw and dirty blues.
An instinctive and visceral sound enriched by different colours, rhythms and shades of boogie tones, rhythm'n'blues, country, bluegrass, mixed with a more Hard Rock Blues sound, playing live shows with much energy and clear Rock'n'Roll attitude .
Among the artists of reference there are Howlin Wolf, Captain Beefheart, Robert Jhonson, Tom Waits and bands like Cream, Allman Brothers, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Cactus, The Bluesbreakers to name a few.
Energy, introspective research, unconscious and spirituality, are among the main sources of inspiration, a channel of surreal communication, a free language, sometimes using invented words but with such a concrete meaning given by a very expressive interpretation.
This is for Belly Hole Freak, the way to feel and live the BLUES, the way to break the mould, in the full freedom, to give voice to the soul.
BHF is Massimiliano “Belly” on guitar, voice, handmade footboard stomp, Hi Hat, cymbals, Cowbell tamburine, Kazoo, anklets. All instruments are played simultaneously in his one man shows.
