Single I Ben Reel – Hardwired Blues


“Hardwired Blues” is the 3rd single to be released before forthcoming album “Come a Long Way”
by Irish artist Ben Reel which will be released June 2023.

It will be Ben Reel’s 11th studio album with 11 brand new self penned songs.
“Hardwired Blues” is a real blues song at heart with lyrical echos of Stax records “Born Under a Bad Sign”
or Ray Charles singing “If It Wasn’t For Bad Luck”. The song has an old school sound of a wailing harmonica and twanging telecaster guitars which gives the kind of vibe of Dylan going electric in 1965.
