Interview by Robert Cavuoto


Glastonbury rockers REEF have released their brand new single and title track, “Shoot Me Your Ace,” off their forthcoming album due out April 15, 2022.

The new single is a straight-up rocker with a Zeppelin flair and is a testament to the band’s rebellious spirits. Gary has shared that the new album is filled with ten equal caliber rocking songs that offer big riffs and even bigger grooves.

REEF is now a five-piece band featuring Gary Stringer [vocals], Jack Bessant [bass], Andy Taylor of Duran Duran [guitar], Jesse Wood, son of Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood [guitars], and Luke Bessant [drums]. Together they have a tremendous writing chemistry that taps into a remarkable array of talents. If that wasn’t enough, Andy Taylor also produced Shoot Me Your Ace!
