Gonna Fly Now
EDDIE DANIELS – I freely admit I’ve been on a bit of a B. Reith kick lately. After getting the chance to hang out with him for a few minutes at Creation 2010, I remain impressed with how transparent he is.
After we got back and I put together the footage into a video interview, I did something I haven’t done in I-don’t-know how long: I sat down and gave his full-length album (“Now is Not Forever”) and his EP (The Forecast EP) a listen straight through. Every track, one after the other. I don’t think I’ve listened to a full album since I listened to music on cassette tapes.
I’m really impressed with the album and, again, taken with how transparent he is in his writing. He combines his sincerity with his quirky sense of humor, and it works. The beats and hooks are catchy and you don’t mind when they get stuck in your head for hours on end.
When we spoke with B. Reith at Creation, he told us he’d just finished filming a couple of music videos from his new project and this is one of them. Be warned, though: This video will make you wanna get out of your chair and go do something.
That’s probably a good thing.
