New album - The Nashville Calling

9th studio album by Ben Reel. Recorded in Nashville TN. Featuring Garry W Tallent from The E Street Band on bass. Produced by Will Kimbrough, Ben Reel and Tommy Womack.

Tough People could be an anthem for these challenging times. The Nashville Calling is arguably Reel’s most inspired album to date, and a useful reminder that no artist of merit creates in a vacuum. ”

Jackie Hayden - Hotpress, March 2020

The velvet voice of Ben Reel sounds superb in the eleven self-composed songs inspired by Americana and country rock rhythms that can be heard on "The Nashville Calling”

Freddie Cells, Rootstime, Belguim - March 2020

The Nashville Calling is yet another wonderful addition to his expanding body of work, fans probably know enough.”

What a joy to help Ben make this wonderful record - Ben has a lot of soul, a powerful voice and a batch of dead on songs. The rhythm section of Garry Tallent and Evan Hutchings combined with the guitar weaving of Tommy, Ben & myself made for inspired interaction. Great experience & an even better album. ”

Ben’s new album is a triumph. Blessed with a vision and his tremendous voice, he gets inside his words and music and makes magic. I’m super glad I got to help out on this project. He’s a singular talent and a wonderful person on top of that. ”
