Big Creek Slim 
Keep My Belly Full
Straight Shooter – SHOT 015

On Keep My Belly Full, Big Creek Slim offers up seven original tunes, and also performs songs by Tommy Johnson, Son House, J.B. Wright, Luther “Snakeboy” Johnson and Jesse James. Big Creek brings a sometimes raucous, sometimes reverent authority to the proceedings, gracing his renditions with a soulful presence and a natural ease.

Big Creek Slim is a Danish-born musician who has traveled in the United States. Keep My Belly Full is his fourth CD release, and his second on Peter Nande’s Straight Shooter Records label. Nande met Big Creek in 2007 and was captivated by Big Creek’s Delta blues playing. Convinced that Big Creek deserved a wider audience, Nande invited him to record for Straight Shooter. The result was Hope For My Soul, released in 2015.

Keep My Belly Full is a more diverse set of tunes than its predecessor Hope For My Soul, delivering a hearty dose of pre-WWII country blues, early Chicago blues, seasoned with boogie woogie, funk and gospel. The music has a vintage sound, but the emotional urgency and intensity of Big Creek Slim’s performances are timeless. Listen, and believe.
