A pulsing rocker fueled by a love for r&b, Tyrone Wells blends organic acoustic guitar, choir vocals, and chiming organ in his songs. His infectious, soulful voice and songs are being introduced to people all over the country.
Growing up a skinny preacher’s kid in Spokane, Wells was discouraged from listening to pop music and only exposed to gospel. Little did he know that a decade later the roots of soul would become a key element of his passionate, irresistible, and utterly unique songs. Combining pop, soul, and rock, Wells sings about true love, war, and heartbreak with equal power and sincerity, coming across as a voice for a generation that’s both idealistic and confused.
When a teenage Jason Reeves encountered the works of Bob Dylan and James Taylor, it set off a chain of events. First he began working on his own songwriting, combining the classic singer/songwriter style with more modern influences like Radiohead and Sufjan Stevens. He then dropped out of college and moved from his native Iowa, eventually landing in California. The second person he met upon arrival was future pop star Colbie Caillat. The two hit it off immediately. It didn't take long for their friendship to turn into a songwriting partnership, one that would create the foundation for Caillat's hit album Coco.
