REVITALISED REEF TOUR LIVE ALBUM AND SINGLE
WORK STARTED ON NEW STUDIO ALBUM

Legendary British soul-rockers Reef are touring the UK with a renewed impetus thanks to new guitarist Jesse Wood (The Ronnie Wood Band/Faces). Announcing their rebirth with a typically sun-kissed single and audacious live album, the band unveiled a cover version of Aretha Franklin's gospel hymn ‘How I Got Over' in March 2016.

This preceded the release of ‘Live At St Ives', which was recorded last October during two shows at St Ives Guildhall. With the new single, live album and extensive UK tour in the pipeline, a revitalised Reef have also started work on a new studio album, their first since 2000's Getaway.

Reef recently made a guest appearance on the newly resurrected 90s hit show TFI Friday, where they performed an acoustic version of Place Your Hands. The song was also the subject of a segment on BBC TV's The One Show in November, where Carrie Grant interviewed the band to discover the story behind the track, now an acknowledged 90s classic.

Formed in Somerset 1993 Reef were quickly signed to Sony imprint S2. They went on to release four studio albums, including 1996's million selling No.1 album Glow, and a greatest hits album before disbanding in 2003. Their hiatus came to an end in 2010, when they were tempted into reuniting for a short tour. When the tour sold out almost immediately it gave the band the belief to keep going, and Reef have toured annually ever since. In 2014 Jesse Wood replaced original guitarist Kenwyn House after he decided to leave Reef to focus on his other band, Goldray. Formerly of the Ronnie Wood band/Faces/Red Racer, and a long-time fan of the band, Jesse has given Reef a fresh impetus with his enthusiasm and energy.

Reef are: Gary Stringer (vocals), Jack Bessant (bass), Jesse Wood (lead guitar), Dominic Greensmith (drums)
