Ben Reel plays rock with a touch of blues and roots and the occasional injection of reggae.
Ireland has a habit of producing good singer/songwriters and this guy is another fine example. Old & Wise again proves his worth as a songwriter with its wonderful lyrics and punchy rhythm: Maverick Magazine, Feb 2010. Old and Wise / Old Bog Road Ben Reel plays rock with a touch of blues and roots and the occasional injection of reggae. Critically acclaimed all 24cialisitalia.com over Europe, his vocals are soulful and his lyrics meaningful. With this new album, Ben’s music has evolved into an honest earthy, soulful sound. Inspired by the authenticity of the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young, their influence is still reflected today in Ben’s passionate and heart-on-the-sleeve approach to performing and writing, but his sound is very much his own.
