Howlin‘ King Snake is generally associated with north American and British blues rock, but the German trio is adept at crossing over into other genres as well.
Since their forming in 2006, Eric Kern (guitar and vocals), Jürgen Schaab (bass and and Hans-Günther Heck (drums) have been playing their own compilations from 4 releases, augmented with tunes by popular greats from the 60s and 70s in the classic three-man band style. In this spirit, their records are interspersed with tracks by Eric Clapton, CCR, ZZ-Top, Thin Lizzy and others.
For fans of blues and blues rock giants like Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, J.J. Cale, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Rory Gallagher and Johnny Winter, Howlin’ King Snake delivers an experience that makes one feel musically at home and elegantly guides you through 100 years of musical history to the veritable roots of blues rock.
Howlin’ King Snake is constantly working at home and in studio to keep the blues alive.
