Mark Radcliffe introduced Reg Meuross onto the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show as a “brilliant singer-songwriter and true troubadour with a social conscience”. And it’s not all protest, as well as story songs which bring characters from history to life and comment on life around him Reg also writes and sings some of the most heart-aching love songs ever written, performed with depth and spellbinding delivery. Reg has that rare gift of being able to touch people through his songs and performance, on a really human level, his words and music painting pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung, accompanying himself masterfully on guitar and captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice.

“An insight into the human spirit and empathy the the plight of ordinary people.” Froots Magazine

Reg co-wrote Seth Lakeman’s powerful new single ‘Divided We Will Fall‘ from latest album ‘The Well Worn Path’.

Pete Townshend has chosen Reg to write and record songs for an important new project, inspired by the life and songs of Woody Guthrie, explaining: “What Reg does is so pure, so honest, so strong and moral. He is a musician of conscience, and so his music has an additional component in it – journalistic emphasis and factual strength.” But listen to Reg Meuross and you will soon realise it’s not all protest, he has also penned some of the most beautifully disarming love songs and lyrics ever written.

Reg Meuross tours the length and breadth of England, Scotland and Wales as well as delighting audiences in South Africa, Spain and Portugal, Australia, New Zealand and the US. In 2017 Reg was invited to take part in a very special event at the Holocaust Centre in Cape Town, where he showcased his song from Faraway People about Sophie Scholl who was a brave young anti-Nazi activist caught and guillotined aged 21. For Sophie (This Beautiful Day) was described by Mike Harding as “one of the most important songs to be written in the last 30 years.”

“…for all its soft reflectiveness it hits as hard as anything you’ll hear.” Dai Jeffries Folking.com

“Calling Meuross a singer-songwriter really doesn’t do the man justice. Meuross doesn’t write lines of lyrics. He writes short stories then sets them to some of the most captivating melodies you’ll ever hear.” Pennyblack Music
