U.K. rockers Reef recently released Shoot Me Your Ace, their second album since they reformed in 2015 after a 12-year hiatus. Much like their last album, 2018’s Revelation, the band have channelled the influences of their heroes – acts like Humble Pie, Free and the Faces – to deliver a timeless, organic slice of modern classic rock. 

Perhaps the latter influence is no surprise, as the band features Jesse Wood, son of Ronnie Wood [Jeff Beck Group, the Creation, the Faces, the Rolling Stones, Ringo Starr’s Dead Giveway, etc.], on guitar.
