Vintage pop music !
… That's what we call it.
When a song remains strong when only played on guitar and vocals, you know you have a good one. And don't forget the bass, because that's what you get when you hear REY.
Formed in 2017 by An Cornillie (vocals), Bart Barbier (guitar / vocals) and Erik Geeraerts (bass), REY writes and performs original songs and carries on the heritage of the great singer / songwriter tradition.
Acoustic / electric pop music, based on a solid foundation seasoned with hints of blues, rock, vintage soul and folk music
Live you can expext nothing less than a solid performance of musical craftsmanship and entertainment.
