Cris Mantello is a multi-talented performer that can sing, play guitar, create songs, and produce. He is a Swiss musician who specializes in American music from the 1950s and 1960s, such as classic country, honky-tonk, and hillbilly. For more than two decades, he and his guitar have toured around Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Austria, Germany, and the United Kingdom to give the idea that traditional country music was still being played. “DIRT,” a song from Cris’ album, was published on August 12, 2022, with the help of two seasoned musicians in the field; Paolo Pizzi recorded the electric bass, while Mauro Florean recorded the drums.
The audio clarity of “Dirt” is remarkable, and you can hear how well it reflects the authenticity of country music. When the play button is hit, everyone will acknowledge the music. You either hum, pound your feet or nod in accord. Because of how wonderfully Cris’ voice combines with the instrumentation in this song, I believe it will appeal to listeners of classic country music as well.
Cris Mantello argues that his song’s message is simply “filthy.” He sings passionately while telling us to be tough and discerning as humans since life and other people will make us unclean, and being dirty is bad. We should be cautious about who we associate with since the games others play might bring us into danger. This is a lesson taught through traditional country music.
The tune rides the peaceful waves of guitar rhythms and melodies. The artist’s vocals have a lovely velvety texture to them, and the melodies enhance and color the emotions contained in the song. The voice and guitar melodies have a country flavor, are pleasant and soulful, and are eerily beautiful. Cris Mantello’s lovely country design is wonderfully blended with aspects of grounded and groveling rock motifs.
Cris is pretty brilliant at what he does, and his song “Dirt” is a true gem. He continues to be appreciative of and dedicated to the tradition of country music while delivering his listeners’ new songs with a few allusions to the country melodies he initially fell in love with in the 1950s and 1960s.
