Posted by Mike Walbert on Oct 1

E Reece is performing on Friday, Oct 8th @ Kevin Nottingham stage

The hard penetrating, self-reflective vocals of this ‘Myspace Featured & URB Magazine Next 1000 Artist‘ poignantly illustrate that true school hip-hop is alive and well. Born in Kansas City, MO and raised in Maryland, E Reece is unlike any artist you have ever heard or seen. This talented lyricist, songwriter, poet, and musician keeps your attention at every turn. His live show is sure to leave you thoroughly invigorated with his live band “Core Elements,” which he formed in early 2005.

His love of music began when he started to study jazz saxophone at age 12. Early influences include Prince, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and James Brown and later to Special Ed, A Tribe Called Quest, EPMD, KRS-One and various other east coast artists. High school is where it all began when he started freestyling with his boys and developing his own style. Later he would hone his skills at open mic nights and any cipher he could get in. A love for hip-hop has developed into a growing career with from MD to NYC to LA, where he currently resides.

He’s performed at numerous clubs, universities and festivals across the globe and the country, sharing the stage and working with artists such as Brand Nubian, Black Sheep, DJ Babu, Jneiro Jarel, Rich Medina, Mayer Hawthorne, Sy Smith, Joy Jones and others. You can check out some music from his releases, A New Breed [2007, EMH/KSD] and L.I.S.n 2 This Live.In.Studio. [2009, Elevated Mental/Foundation Media (US) – Mic Life Recordings (Japan)] online at cdbaby.com/all/ereece. His music has also been licensed to television and film projects, as well as video games, namely 2K Sports’ College Basketball ’08, Oxygens’s Bad Girls Club, E!’s Keeping up with The Kardashian’s and MTV’s The Real World.

His music transcends all cultures and with a love for rhyming that’s deeply rooted in the essence of the hip-hop genre, it’s going to be hard to stop his star from rising. “Once they’ve heard my music or seen my live show, I want people to believe in the power of positive music and to know that real hip hop isn’t dead.” Check out his latest release on Elevated Mental/HiPNOTT Records entitled Concrete Steppin out now on iTunes and Amazon, which features production by Oddisee, Kev Brown, Nobody Famous, Proh Mic, Presto and more, with guest spots from Buff1, Othello, El Prez, Tunji and others. He’s E Reece and he’s not for the fake. All sucka MC’s beware!
