Jason Reeves Spring Tour and Late Night
Reeves, a 25-year-old Iowa City native who was signed by DioGuardi, is completing his first album for Warner Bros. Records. His independent album, The Magnificent Adventures of Heartache (and Other Frightening Tales), was re-released by Warner Bros. Records after selling briskly as an independent release in 2007. The album's hook-filled songs of love, hope, heartbreak, and renewal, matched with Reeves' engaging tenor voice, led iTunes to name Reeves one of the Top Indie Singer-Songwriters of 2007.
Music fans may also know Reeves through his songwriting collaborations with singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat. Reeves co-wrote 10 tracks on Caillat's platinum debut album Coco, including the smash hit singles "Bubbly" and "Realize," as well as 10 tracks on her new album Breakthrough. That album's current single, "I Never Told You", was co-written by Reeves, Caillat and DioGuardi. Reeves also co-wrote the international No. 1 hit "The Show" on singer-songwriter Lenka's debut album, and has several other collaborations to be released in 2010.
Last year, Reeves, and fellow musicians Brendan James and Amber Rubarth launched The Vespa Experiment — a two-week tour of the California coastline during which they rode Vespas up the coast with just the basics: camping gear, musical instruments, and a vision: to inspire young people to consider their impact on their environment. A short documentary of their adventure can be seen at http://vimeo.com/7684497.
