Q&A Scene: Dave Hole

What’s your latest album/ tour?

New Album: “Goin’ Back Down”
Australian Tour:  May 3rd to May 26th

What’s your favourite work at this point in time? 

“Too Little, Too Late” from the new album.

How would you describe your sound in food form and why? 

Interesting.  Maybe custard – thick and sweet with the occasional lump!

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.

At the International Performing Arts Centre in Moscow the three of us had two bodyguards each, one on each shoulder.  They accompanied us everywhere we went except actually on stage – even into toilets.  We couldn’t decide if it was for our own protection or to prevent us escaping!

What, or who, inspires you?

Lots of people but especially the really old blues guys – Robert Johnson, Elmore James, Freddie King.

Which song do you wish you wrote?

“Dark Was The Night” – Blind Willie Johnson.

What’s next for you?

I’m totally absorbed at the moment in getting ready for the album release and Australian tour dates.  Can’t wait to actually hit the stage and have some fun!

What’s your scene?

It’s all about music.  Probably jamming on the back verandah and having a few drinks with my muso mates is about as good as it gets for me. And on tour those two hours on stage are always the highlight of every day.
