Tobias H. Reese

Session Guitarist Composer

Tobias H. Reese on SoundBetter

Need an actual Artist-player who has the skill of a Composer; the craft of an Orchestrator-remixer, the sensitivity of a Poet who happens to play a wicked guitar with an original voice? Nice to meet you. :-)

My name, as indicated above, is Tobias H. Reese. I am an Artist-Composer-Multi-instrumentalist.
I began as a child sitting for days at my Grandparents piano imitating Beethoven...moved on to Chopin and eventually studied all the classics and, somewhere along the way picked up a guitar.
While my roots are planted deeply within classical structures, art-music and the craft of orchestration as a whole -be it traditional ensemble pieces or forays into soundscape creations- my romance has always been with imitative, experimental guitar work. While playing Beethoven during the day, at night I devoured the stylings of modern and mystical electric guitar gods. Throughout the years I've found my own voice both as a player and composer and I've no doubt that my professionalism, talent and maturity will bring a level of uniqueness to your work.
I adore the art of sound. I love most all music. Good music. Real music. I would love to hear your music and contribute if the union is meant to be.
Namaste, God Bless and ...May the Force be with you. :-) Peace.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
