Gus Reeves on SoundBetter

Highly experienced and versatile songwriter/topline artist/vocalist to help realize your musical vision!

I have been writing and recording professionally for over a decade, have released several records of original material and, offering my skills as a lyricist, composer, and vocalist, have collaborated with numerous clients around the world to bring their visions to life. While living in Chicago, I was honored by the Illinois Arts Council with an Artist Fellowship Award and worked at the Chicago Recording Company, recording vocals for private clients and appearing as a featured artist on Acoustic Chicago.
My love of music extends to a broad range of genres, including soul, R&B, hip hop, pop, rock, funk, folk, country, americana, and classical, all of which have influenced my original material.
I offer industry-quality writing (lyrics, topline, general composition), vocals, and session vocal arrangement.

    I just wrapped up another collaboration with Gus. It’s such a unique experience to hand over lyrics to someone and get a beautiful song and melody in return. Gus puts so much work into crafting his music to fit the lyrics and mood. He is a top notch singer, musician and songwriter - completely deserving of all the 5 star reviews he receives. I am always incredibly happy with the results of our collaborations and consider myself fortunate to have the chance to work with him.

    From start to finish, the collaboration was marked by a deep level of respect and professionalism, and I couldn't be more pleased with the end result. One of the things that stood out to me the most about Gus was his ability to really get to the heart of what we were trying to communicate through our messaging. He took the time to listen carefully to my needs and goals, and then applied his deep knowledge and experience to craft copy that was both compelling and effective.

Interview with Gus Reeves

  1. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  2. A: I love the feeling of getting a song or a take exactly how I want it.

  3. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  4. A: I've found that layering vocals can make a huge difference, bringing richness and fullness to choruses.

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: Lyric writing and musical composition.

  7. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  8. A: I would love to work with Jon Brion because he is as creative a producer as he is an instrumentalist and I love his ideas and his energy.

  9. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  10. A: My musical taste, abilities, and clientele are so varied that I end up working on a lot of different sounding stuff: R&B/soul, folk/americana, hip hop, etc.

  11. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  12. A: I bring the whole package - synthesizing composition and performance, playing multiple instruments, singing lead and background - to take a song from idea to fully realized production.

  13. Q: What's your typical work process?

  14. A: When I'm starting from scratch on my own song, I just try to pay attention to what's flowing out and nurture that. If I'm working on assignment, I familiarize myself with the material, then, trusting my instincts, I pursue the potential of those ideas and submit to the unfolding.

  15. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  16. A: I'm really inspired by the classic Steely Dan recordings because of their attention to detail. I strive toward that level of perfection.

  17. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  18. A: I do musical composition, vocal writing, and vocal performing.
