Artists You Should Know: Jason Reeves, Matt Hires

I've been listening to phenomenal singer-songwriters lately. Although I've already featured and interviewed both Jason Reeves and Matt Hires previously on You Sing I Write, since both have new music released today I figured I'd reintroduce them to you.

Jason Reeves is one of my favorite artists. His name may sound familiar because he's co-written on both of Colbie Caillats' albums. Reeves described himself as a hopeful romantic when I interviewed him last year at SXSW, and this can easily be seen in the emotional tales in his songs. You can preview the first track off his upcoming album, "Helium Hearts" on his Web site as well as purchase it on iTunes.

Watch a video of Jason performing "Droplets," a track he wrote with Colbie below.

I first witnessed Matt Hires live when he opened for Tyrone Wells last year. Since then, his music has been featured on numerous television dramas including "Grey's Anatomy" and "Private Practice." About to embark on a headlining tour promoting latest EP,  A to B, Hires' wavering vocals and acoustic guitar are sure to impress concertgoers. To stream his EP on AOL click here.
