Details

Reg first emerged onto the acoustic music scene in the 1980s with The Panic Brothers and has, over the years of touring and playing solo as well as with many other acclaimed artists, developed a style that as Pete Townshend says “allows the listener to embrace the whole breadth of his work over many years without distraction… he sings in the neutral accent of an Englishman who travels the entirety of the British Isles, and tastes all its flavours, influenced by all its most profound national colours. In this he reminds one of Roy Harper or Ewan McColl, recent greats who went before him.”

Reg then went on to form The Flamingos who featured ex Graham Parker guitarist Martin Belmont, Bob Loveday from The Penguin Cafe Orchestra & Bob Geldof’s Band & Alison Jones of The Barely Works They recorded one album called ‘Arrested’.

In 1996 he released his first critically acclaimed solo album ‘The Goodbye Hat’ and was nominated for several music awards, including best song for ‘Ring around the Roses’. It was followed up in 2004 with ‘Short Stories’ and in 2006 by the excellent ‘Still’. In 2008 he released his most successful collection to date, ‘Dragonfly’, followed in 2010 by ‘All this Longing’. ‘The Dreamed and the Drowned’, released in 2011, is a collection of thirteen previously unreleased archive songs. It was commissioned and compiled by Stephen Jordan at The Bodleian Music Library, Oxford, who says “This is Reg Meuross at his most eclectic and inspiring best.”
