REG MEUROSS FARAWAY PEOPLE Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:
This is the vinyl release of Faraway People, the second (the first being December) in a trilogy of solo albums from Somerset singer-songwriter and storyteller through song Reg Meuross. It delivers his poignant and powerful songs with the same intimacy and authenticity of the live performances that have captivated audiences throughout the UK and abroad for nearly 30 years now. Reg comments courageously on the world we are living in now, from the ravages of austerity to the injustices of racism and the plight of refugees. He also delves into history, echoing warnings that resonate through the decades and are still relevant today. Stories told include people from living memory such as anti Nazi activist Sophie Scholl from WW2, and Michael Brown (victim of the fatal Missouri shooting in 2014) as well as ancient history (Cicero) and even a fictitious meeting between two of the artist’;s greatest heroes. Amongst the protest, there is also plenty of beauty and observations on love, life and humanity. "Faraway People goes the distance. Yes, there’;s anger and indignation, but, all too rare in a protest album, there’;s also a deep well of compassion and insight into the human heart and spirit.”; MIKE DAVIES “;Reg has done it again - another album chock-full of fine, fine songs. There is anger here, and tenderness here and wisdom too, and wonderful tunes. All crafted by a master songwriter. As they say in Ireland, it’;s ‘;The Pure Drop’;.”; MIKE HARDING
