“The song-writing is exquisite. The playing is of a remarkable standard.
The vocals and chorus are exhilarating.” – Music News.com “With Southern flavoured, blues rock & roll and hints of 70’s rock, Shine A Light On Me Brother is a striking ten-track barn burner.” – Rock & Blues Muse
“Party-primed blast of rock and roll, peppered with slide guitar, brass, thumping keys and gospel harmonies. It’s like hearing the Blues Brothers and Blackberry Smoke doing Proud Mary, in the desert. So familiar you’ll swear you’ve heard it before, and a whole lotta fun to boot.” – Classic Rock

“Everyday’ is an all-out good-time jam track that was born out of frustration due to lack of freedoms that we had grown used to pre-pandemic and were subsequently denied during lockdown,” says the Wreck’s frontman, Robert Jon Burrison.
