Comprising of Reef vocalist Gary Stringer and bassist Jack Bessant, StringerBessant have crafted a folk side project that has its emphasis in subtle but hefty choruses and memorable refrains. Their first album, Yard, is chock full of harmonies and rustic tones. Though a big departure from the day job, there's no mistaking Gary's voice nor their knack for subtle pop melodies. Reef's history with some Xtra Mile personnel meant StringerBessant already had somewhere to release their other musical musings. More than a mere side project, StringerBessant is a true outlet for two musicians keen for their musical voices to be heard.
