about me

Hi, I'm Reeve. I'm a singer-songwriter from North Carolina. I'm in the process of finishing up my first full-length studio album, YAY! I love sad songs, dissonant harmony, drums that make you move, and songs with an element of surprise. Lap steel makes my heart dance and tambourine makes me smile. I am the type of person that a single record can change my life.

I spend a lot of my days on stage, in front of a crowd, and most of the time I am battling the urge to run away and hide. Yet, I keep doing it. Why? I think because I am an ENFJ.

I am learning to live a life full of love, beauty, simplicity, and BIG DREAMS. I'm not there yet but on my way. I would much rather stay up late playing games and chatting with friends than going out. I love books. I love to read them, listen to them, and also decorate with them. I am happy surrounded by my books. I listen to vinyl. I have an unhealthy obsession with owls. I wear glasses because I'm almost blind and can't stand contacts, not because they are trendy ;)

I write my own songs, most of them are sad. But they make me happy and I hope they make you happy too. I co-write songs with my pal Mattie with The Mud Puddles, and adult-friendly kids band. I used to play with an al-gal band, but now I stick with my Band of Men. I help lead worship at my sweet little church, Lake Forest Church Davidson. I'd almost always prefer to sing harmony and be in the background than singing a solo. I love to turn people onto new (to them) music, so much so that I write a post every Tuesday doing just that.

Yes, I knit that.
I created this blog about knitting in 2008. It is clearly no longer about knitting. I still knit, but because of a syndrome I have, knitting has become harder and I can only knit a little at a time. But I still have a huge love for all things fiber:) and I am still a yarn snob.

Having EDS (or most likely, still don't have a 100% diagnosis, but my dr's say 99% sure) sucks and makes life a little difficult but I wouldn't trade my life for anything. I have great friends and family who support me so very much physically, spiritually, and emotionally. I can honestly say - I am blessed.

still want to know more...

I wrote a series in Oct. 2013 called 31 Days of a Music-Filled Life
