Born in 1963, guitarist, singer and songwriter Fred "Lefthand Freddy" Reining writes the blues with capital letters in The Nertherlands. With more than thirty years on the road, he debuted in the early 90s with Lefthand Freddy & The Aces with André van der Werf on bass, Hans Waterman on drums and his son Berend Reining on rhythm guitar. With them he recorded four magnificent albums. In the 2000s he reformed the band with the replacement of the original drummer by Hannes Langkamp and the inclusion of keyboardist Jan Diertens and as Lefthand Freddy (The Aces was eliminated) he recorded in 2006 a splendid collection of songs entitled "Back On Track". By then Fred was already a reference in the blues scene in his country and was well known on the European circuit. His style with the guitar is as seductive as it's balanced with tempos and his technique with the strings, he usually plays with his bare fingers,  merge each episode in an amalgam of blues seasoned sometimes with doses of electrifying funk and other times with licks of soul, a bit of boogie and incisive beats of jazz. Lefthand Freddy has years of experience playing and in this latest album "Carry On!" he proposes to follow in his footsteps with one of the best blues albums produced in Europe this year.
