Jason Reeves (born July 1, 1984) is an American singer-songwriter. He was born in Iowa City, Iowa. Self-taught on the guitar, Reeves began his own musical adventure as a teenager, when he discovered the works of folk legends Bob Dylan and James Taylor. Transformed, Reeves spent the next few years honing his own writing skills before dropping out of college and moving to California to pursue his music full time. Reeves paints amazingly sophisticated portraits of some of life’s most vulnerable, yet exhilarating moments.
From the uplifting opening track “Someone Somewhere” through reflective closer “The End”, singer–songwriter Jason Reeves’ album The Magnificent Adventures of Heartache (and Other Frightening Tales) takes listeners on a contemplative journey of love, hope, heartbreak and renewal. Originally available online and at his shows only, the album’s beauty and raw honesty connected with listeners and earned a “Top Folk Album of 2007” distinction from iTunes, which also named Reeves one of the Top Indie Singer-Songwriters of that year. Now signed to Warner Bros. Records, which will widely distribute his album for the first time, Reeves’s own story continues, one that remains as pure as his outlook on life and music as it ever was.
One voice Jason has successfully captured is that of Colbie Caillat, who happened to be the second person he met upon arriving in California. During a recording session with producer Mikal Blue, Reeves met Colbie, (whose father, Ken, is Blue’s studio partner and co-producer of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors) and an immediate friendship began.
The Reeves–Caillat–Blue trio soon became inseparable; writing songs and recording together every chance they had. “Mikal and Colbie were the only people I knew in LA,” Reeves says. “We spent a lot of time together, just going to the beach, the mountains, the woods, playing guitar and writing songs.” The songs, inspired by the beauty of the California Coast, formed the foundation for Reeves’ first EP Hearts Are Magnets, as well as Caillat’s breakthrough (and nearly double-platinum) album Coco, on which Reeves co-wrote the majority of tracks including the multi-format smash singles “Bubbly” and "Realize".
Reeves is a credited co-writer on ten of the 12 tracks—including singles "Bubbly", "Realize", and "The Little Things"—on Colbie Caillat's debut album Coco, which went platinum and peaked at #5 on the US Billboard 200. Caillat was the second person Reeves met when he moved to Los Angeles from Iowa.
Reeves has toured throughout 2008 with fellow American singer–songwriter Tyrone Wells, with whom he has written songs which are unreleased but available on the Web, such as "Give Me One Reason" and "Big Mistake".
He has also co-written and performed a song called "Terrified" with Kara DioGuardi.
