Reese Sullivan

Reese was the winner of the 2021 Rocky Mountain Songwriter Showcase. Originally from Arkansas, Reece now lives in Lafayette, LA and play the surrounding states regularly.  Over the course of the years, I’ve reinvented myself musically many times, sometimes against my will: piano to guitar, classical to art rock, art rock to folk, flat picking to finger-picking, solely songwriting to performing.  My latest incarnation has me playing out often, sometimes touring, and writing and recording consistently.  I have a full album titled, Middle Sea, out April 2021 and another, Arkansas, scheduled for Fall 2021. Thanks for checking me out and listening to me!

“You’re the Bob Dylan of Louisiana” Stuart McNair

“Your words are Old Testament flames, your guitar pickin’ the devil’s ice pick, your voice the prophet of doom” Billy Callaway

“‘I Dismissed Your Work’ brings to mind a woozy Bob Dylan with significantly more polish.” Adobe & Teardrops

“‘Blood’ is a riveting blast of soulful Americana that snakes through its nearly seven-minute length with soulful alactrity.  Sullivan is a commanding presence and he pilots the track with a sure-footed confidence and a decidely philosophical narrative, while guitarist Jim McGee is in top form, driving the track with Bluesy finesse.” Alex Green at Stereo Embers Magazine

“With a Baton Rouge bluesy swing set to a reggae beat, Reece Sullivan supplies delightfully layered music,” Melissa Clarke at Americana Highways on single Pretty Carry
