REESE Rocking House of Blues Chicago
REESE is rock music. REESE is rap music. REESE is funk music. REESE is accessible music. REESE has been performing throughout North America and Europe since 2001. Opening for popular artists including Common and filling in for larger artists including Ben Folds, REESE has built a significant fan base from the US to Europe. REESE has been featured on CBS The Early Show as "the next big thing in the music business.”
REESE credits his cross genre appeal to a past split between Brooklyn, NY and Greensboro, NC. “I’m the yin and yang of inner city projects and wide-open country fields. My music is influenced by what I hear in the street and what I listen to at home.”
REESE has released five albums including one live album recorded at NYC's famous club, The Bitter End. REESE's fifth CD, “New Fire: Pain B4 Pleasure” was commercially released in the spring of 2008. “New Fire” features REESE on vocals and rhymes, Mike Barnes of Shocka Zooloo on guitar, Shyndigg from Digg Deep on bass, CWill on drums. "New Fire" features guest vocalist Gary "Nesta" Pine from legendary group, The Wailers.
“New Fire” is REESE’s the best offering yet and the US is already embracing it! The first single, "ll:Aah:ll:Yeah:ll" is receiving stadium play around the US. Sports teams from the NFL, NBA, and NHL are playing "ll:Aah:ll:Yeah:ll" every time they score, or during warm up. Some (The Philadelphia Eagles and The Detroit Lions, to name a few) have made it their music for their highlight reels. The NY Knicks made a customized version of "ll:Aah:ll:Yeah:ll" their theme song for the 2008 season. And The Chicago Bears made "ll:Aah:ll:Yeah:ll" their new stadium chant!
“As a passionate rock singer, REESE conveys the emotion of the lyrics seamlessly through every song,” says record producer, Mark “CoolNerd” Unthank.
For the 2009 television season, MTV and Nickelodeon licensed a total of 17 songs from the last three REESE recordings. The songs are airing in the top shows on the respective networks.
2010 also brings a summer REESE tour of Europe and the United States and new album.
