The track is getting a lot of interest on radio. This is what people are saying:
“Once again Reg Meuross delves deep into the seam of gold that is his lyrical mastery and brings us, yet again a piece of beauty. His delicate guitar picking coupled with that high tenor voice gets you every time. Reg writes those songs that make you stop, listen and think, with a smile on your face and a tear in your eye; ‘The Hands of a Woman’ is one of those songs.” Rich Harris – Folk & Blues Show – Somer Valley FM
“A gorgeous song from a master songwriter.” Ken Mutch producer Iain Anderson Show BBC Radio Scotland
“The Hands Of A Woman’ only once, and I’m liking it already. Reg pulls the song out of the bag yet again.” Mick Tems – Folk Wales
“From the first melodic twang on the guitar made the corn more golden, the grass much greener, my partners soul far sweeter. Every note masking a human emotion of want or need. A true love song dripping with hope. At times reminiscent of Cat Stevens and Paolo Nutini. Honestly it could make a grown man cry, beautiful stuff.” Christian Frank – The Lemon Circus Radio Show
“Hands of a Woman from the latest album ‘December’ is typical of the songwriting quality produced consistently by Reg Meuross. It could be mistaken for sweet easy listening but with a razor’s edge. Much of Reg Meuross’ work over the past decades reminds one of walking across clear frozen alpine lakes that at first might look shallow and benign. Like the songs, too easy to misjudge the depth.” Jonti Willis – Roots Music Club Doncaster which will be hosting the North of England launch of ‘December’ http://www.wegottickets.com/event/340132
“Once again, Reg Meuross shows us why he is one of the best songwriters this country has to offer. A beautiful, soothing song that demands your full attention. I await the full album with interest.” Dave Chamberlain – Acoustic Routes Radio
“One of many songwriters belonging in the dictionary of music under the word ‘authentic’. Through storytelling and stagecraft within his words and music, Reg opens up a songs story to the audience, conveying knowledge past and present, the great wisdom of folklore.” Alex Hawkins – Homely Remedies radio show
“‘Hands of a woman’ is a particularly beautiful song from Reg Meuross ..superb, thoughtful lyrics with accomplished instrumentation to give the listener a truly exceptional yet simple song; I can’t get it out of my head!” Brian Inglis – Jelli Records
“The simple things in life bring the most pleasure. A beautiful song, ‘The Hands Of A Woman’ and a wonderful singer songwriter. The voice and guitar of Reg Meuross, simply glorious.” John Godfrey – The Troubadour Show
