Released on 31st December 2020 @ 11pm the same time that UK left the EU. This song was recorded in Nashville as part of The Nashville Calling album sessions but I left it off the album because of its contentious theme. It is an anti Brexit song and also marks 100 years of a border been drawn up on the island of Ireland. The British interfered in many a nation drawing up border lines through tribal and religious territories like India, The Middle East, Africa & Asia. I often wonder how history would have played out differently without their meddling.

These are songs about the resilience and the brave. They could be soundtracks and theme songs for the first responders in our current health pandemic. Reel has all the ingredients of the best roots rockers – swagger, attitude, heart and a way with words. And, his voice is so much better than most. Listen up.” - Jim Hynes
