Brandon Reeves

Brandon Reeves has spent the last 6 years bringing his blend of roots and soul to the southeast with over 500 gigs since 2008. Brandon's songs have been compared to the sounds of other roots-rock groups like Gov't Mule, The Black Keys, and The John Butler Trio. He has also shared the stage with Tab Benoit, members of Hall & Oates band, the Zac Brown Band, and Ringo Starr's All Star Band. In December of 2009 Athens, Georgia's Flagpole magazine said “It’s the less overtly bluesy songs that end up being the most pleasing. Just like Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton once did, Reeves takes elements of the genre and builds songs around them—although to a much different effect than those two. The end result is undeniably more exciting than hearing a Robert Johnson tune rehashed by a modern blues musician for the hundredth time. Instead, Reeves arrives at a fusion of country, Western and alt-rock with the underlying blues influence perforating every note”.
