B.REITH: Heart On My Sleeve (EP)

b-reith-heart-on-my-sleeve

It’s been nearly four years since an official release from B.Reith. The gifted singer, songwriter, and rapper is one of the few hybrid artists that can be musically comfortable in virtually any environment. After an underground single or two and even thoughts of leaving the industry, the Nashville native returns with a transparent six-track EP titled Heart On My Sleeve. As the title eludes, this project is Reith sharing his heart in an open, melodic, and powerful manner. With songs like “Start Over” and “Roll With The Punches”, it’s easy to see that Reith still has LOTS to say and we are glad to lend our ears.
