Ben Reel released his 11th studio album ‘Come a Long Way’ in June 2023. Since his debut album back in 1999, Ben has reinvented himself from album to album, influenced by different styles of music over the years. As one critic said, ” He’s not afraid to throw in some in folk, soul, reggae vibes, which in turn call to mind John Hiatt at his best”. Another describes him as “somewhere in the middle ground between rock and jazz or a sound that is sometimes reminiscent of Dylan and the Band”. Comparisons have been made with the voice of Roy Orbison. He has also been described as the Irish Springsteen and on that subject, E street band bass player Garry Tallent featured on his album ‘The Nashville Calling`released in 2020. In a solo career which now spans over 20 years, Ben and his band have received worldwide critical acclaim with numerous high profile TV/Radio appearances like BBC, RTE, Dutch NPO & Supporting the likes of Jools Holland, & The Cranberries.
