Manic Music Monday is when I like to share music that I am loving, just heard and want to share it with you. I love music and love to find unique, fun and amazing musicians that I think you might like as well.
Okay so we are back with a new amazing band that I have just started listening to and can not get enough of.
Reasons Be is an LA based duo, Scotty Dickert and Ariel Belkin (R.E.L) who started out on Craigslist when R.E.L answered an ad posted by Scotty seeking a guitar player. They met immediately and their first song was born.
About Reasons Be:
Through family struggles, R.E.L found solace in music. He arrived in Hollywood to enroll in the Musicians Institute of Independent Artist program.
Scotty fronted a band from his hometown that performed together for 7 years and had music featured in films as well as on MTV. When the band broke up, he headed to Los Angeles.
Although both are very talented, their strengths and struggles as musicians have given us great music to enjoy and endear us through our struggles.
They remind me a lot of Oasis (in a good way) with their catchy lyrics, unusual voices and great guitar.
You can get the latest Reasons Be song Hands Up here.
