2017 heralds a new solo album from Reg Meuross. Faraway People is a fresh collection of songs which comment bravely on life as he sees it, bringing wide ranging stories, from the ravages of austerity and the injustice of the plight of refugees, to some of most beautifully disarming lyrics ever written.

“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

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 paint pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung.

“From everyday victims crushed by an uncaring society to unsung heroes taking a defiant stand against the darkness of tyranny and oppression, 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

“There’s something special about the way he writes and delivers a song” Townes Van Zandt.

“Faraway People is not going to be any exception, in fact it looks like being his most hard hitting album to date.” Neil King, Fatea Magazine.

“One of the most talented storytellers of our generation” Pennyblack Music

“Powerful and moving songwriting” Martin Chilton, The Telegraph

“A mighty songwriter and an equally fine singer” Martin Carthy
