Holywell Music & Folk is very honoured that patron artist Reg Meuross has chosen our prestigious Oxford venue for the release of his new, album, recorded at Stockfisch Records in Germany.
Reg Meuross received a phone call out of the blue in 2016 from innovative producer Gunter Pauler, director of cutting edge audiophile studios Stockfisch Records, inviting him to Germany to record this eponymously titled new album which will be released worldwide on July 13th 2018. The result is a brand new retrospective; fresh recordings and arrangements of 12 Meuross songs selected by Pauler from the Somerset singer-songwriters extensive repertoire. This collection will give new listeners an opportunity to discover an artist whose work covers “Love, death, politics, social commentary”
as the music writer, reviewer and radio presenter Mike Davies attests in the sleeve notes: “these are all tools of the singer-songwriter’s trade and, whether drawn from life or imagination, Reg Meuross wields them with the best, crafting songs that touch the heart, stimulate the mind, leave you in a warm glow of contentment or a fire of righteous indignation in equal measure.”
Honoured by the invite, Reg recalls “it was a real pleasure to work with Gunther and his team, and to make these new recordings of some of my classics on some of the finest recording equipment in the world. Gunther had a clear vision of how he wanted the songs to sound and I gave him free range to achieve this.”
Gunther came across a recording of England Green & England Grey by chance in 2016. “I was immediately impressed by his vocal and lyrics and knew he would be a perfect fit for Stockfisch, so we invited him over to the studio along with guitarist Ian Melrose. The recording session was as good as expected and it was a joy to work with him. It’s great that the final song selection for the album spans such a variety of different topics. We are very happy that Reg Meuross is now represented on our label.”
