Some artists become overnight sensations, their first moment in the spotlight immediately catapulting them to fame. Others grind for years, their breakthrough moment being the reward for their dogged determination.
Reece is a rare exception whose story straddles both extremes. The singer, rapper and songwriter scored one of YouTube’s earliest viral hits when his debut track ‘Heaven’ reached a million streams when he was just 15-years-old. That initial rush of attention also saw him become the youngest artist to ever play Wireless, as well as the first independent artist to perform at the festival.
In the years that have passed, Reece has enjoyed some memorable highlights. He hit the Australian charts as a featured artist on Danni Minogue’s ‘Summer Of Love’, toured with N-Dubz and landed a second hit of his own when the 2016 single ‘LifeLong Love’ passed 400,000 streams without any promotion whatsoever.
After signing with Disturbing London, he is set to release his single ‘All Falls Down,’ featuring Moelogo, channelling his raw emotions with a new creative approach. In the past, most of his tracks featured rapped verses contrasted with melodic hooks. This time around, he sang from the soul.
Traces of Ed Sheeran, Drake, The Streets and even Oasis can be heard Reece’s new material, and like those artists, Reece excels at telling relatable stories through immediately captivating melodies.
