Ben Reel has just recorded a new album in Nashville TN featuring E street band member Garry Tallent on bass guitar, due to be released in January 2020 which will be his 9th studio album. It will be the follow up to critically acclaimed `Land Of Escape’ which came out in the Spring of 2018.
Since his debut album `This Is The Movie’ back in 1999, Ben has reinvented himself from album to album, influenced by different styles of music from rock, soul, blues, alt folk/Americana, country & reggae which fuses all these genres into a melting pot to create a great sound which has become his own and behind him he has got the finest band this country has to offer.
In a solo career which now spans 20 years, Ben continues to tour around the world. He has had numerous high profile TV & Radio appearances like BBC, RTE & Dutch NPO. He has supporting names like Jools Holland, Alabama 3, The Cranberries and has collaborated musically with such names as Hal Ketchum, David Olney & The Blockheads.
The band have graced big festivals such as Musiktan festival in Bilba (Spain), Jamming@Hippie Jacks (USA), Haarlem Jazz & Huntenpop in (Holland), Robin Hood folk festival (UK), Kilkenny rhythm & roots, Cork jazz festival & Ireland’s premiere music festival “Electric Picnic”.
This is a show not to be missed.
