Reese is the solo project of songwriter, guitarist, and producer, Reese Perkins. This power trio's blues-rock sound resonates with hints of pop and funk. Their music is a fusion of Jimi Hendrix and Matthew Sweet, accented with creative guitar licks reminiscent of those by John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Although frontman Perkins hails originally from Southwest Louisiana, he has performed as lead guitarist on various projects in Austin, Texas since 1994. Currently rounding out the lineup of the band is Brooke Dyer on bass and Kevin Gathright on drums. The latest release from Reese, Pisces, is a broad collection of songs with a wide dynamic. It features a variety of styles, creative songwriting, and stellar guitar work. In addition to writing all of the music and lyrics on Pisces, Perkins produced, engineered, and mixed the album. This album also marks the recording debut of Melisa Urban who duets with Reese on a track. Before focusing on his solo career, Reese Perkins performed as lead guitarist and producer for such artists as Wendy Colonna, Rebecca Cole, and Michelle Mayfield. He has shared the stage with a myriad of performers ranging from popular artists like Marc Broussard, Guy Forsyth, Rachel Loy, Bob Schneider, Patricia Vonne, and Casey McPherson to Grammy Award winners like Ray Benson, Shawn Colvin, and Grammy nominee, Tab Benoit. Reese has performed on the Austin City Limits television stage, at the Austin City Limits Festival, and at the South by Southwest Festival. Reese is currently performing in Austin, Texas and surrounding regions.
