Jason Reeves

If you've never heard of Jason Reeves, what are you waiting for? He sets brilliant poetry to heartfelt music. If nothing else, you know his songwriting skills. He writes with Colbie Caillat and Kara Dioguardi.

First of all, I could not have asked for a better show. Momo's was the perfect venue. It is small and intimate. There are tables in the front. My friend and I snagged one front and center, giving us the best seat in the house to swoon over Jason.

British singer/songwriter Joe Brooks opened up for Jason Reeves. He was fantastic as well. I used to listen to him on Myspace back in the day, so this was a treat for me.

Jason played an incredible set, but I was slightly disappointed when he didn't play my favorite song, his first single, "Someone Somewhere." I was also secretly hoping that he would play the song he wrote with Kara Dioguardi, "Terrified."

As Jason was walking off the stage after his final encore, a few people started shouting out more requests, including the two songs I had been hoping to hear. Momo's agreed to give Jason more time, and I was ecstatic with the result.

Jason Reeves played a medley of "Someone Somewhere," "Terrified," and another one of my favorite songs, "Reaching."

Here's Jason Reeves performing his newest single, "Helium Hearts." All of Jason's music is available to purchase on iTunes. Buy "Helium Hearts" here.
