|'Monster Guitars' Mark Easton & Adam Hole - exciting stuff – duelling guitars, scorching slide riffs and extended jam possibilities. They are both power slide guitar masters. 2man project limited tour!|
Blues-rock-stomp virtuoso Adam Hole joins forces with one-man band Mark Easton, a duo that uses multiple models - lap steel, resonator, double neck guitars- to combine riffs with drums, stomp box, loop station and more to paint a colourful musical palette which recalls the bold sounds of the '70s. From the roots of the blues Willie Dixon, Sonny Boy Williamson, to Hendrix, Hound Dog Taylor, Johnny Cash, Led Zeppelin, RL Burnside, White Stripes and now to ‘Monsters’ originals. Sweet acoustic picking to hard rocking frenzy - stomping, dirty blues that crosses into rock and roots and back again.
Adam has really buffed up with body building (the ladies will faint) and will have a new solo cd to launch soon-going back to his rock side of the blues.
Adam Hole has been named as one of Australia’s leading solo blues guitarists in Chris Johnson’s latest book “Guitar- The Australian Story” alongside Jeff Lang, John Butler, Geoff Achison, Fiona Boyes, Ash Grunwald, Lloyd Spiegel and Mia Dyson.
Adam lets rip with high energy, raunchy slide guitar - stomping, dirty blues that crosses into rock and metal and back again. He plays like a wild man but never misses a beat nor a chance to invest utmost passion into old blues and rock originals alike.
Mark Easton recently performed opening support for the Joe Bonamassa show at QPAC in Brisbane in late 2012 (big bluesrock American guitar hero).
“Lovers of biting, ruthless slide guitar and blues rock, funk rock and hard rock are going to have the time of their lives.” Bobtje Blues, Belgium.
Experience songs from Mark's latest cd “GRIND” (9 months in top 25 of Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Charts) and some popular covers, crafted on resonator and double neck guitars, compact percussion gear, harp and kick drum. Elements of blues, rock, dirty grooves, funk and gnarly slide playing are blazingly evident with Mark’s love of the stronger side of the blues- acknowledging styles like RL Burnside, Hound Dog Taylor, Led Zeppelin, Black Keys, White Stripes. Mark is a high octane blues machine who burns it up on slide guitar. The loop system layers his music, combined with chainsaw or sometimes sweet vocals, harmonica and drumming with his feet to provide a full, fat sound. Some very fine acoustic guitar picking rounds off the flip side of this musical dynamo. www.monsterguitars.net
