Jason Reeves/ Amber Rubarth
April 30, 2011
Throughout history, there have been countless albums written about love. Passion and heartbreak still serve as timeless muses across the spectrums of both pop and rock. On his second full-length album and long-awaited major-label debut, The Lovesick, Jason Reeves offers a fresh perspective on everybody's favorite subject from the stance of those who aren't in love but want to be. With lilting pop harmonies and heartfelt, honest lyrics, Reeves examines the world's need for connection on personal and universal levels.
At 21 years old, Amber Rubarth decided to quit her career as a chainsaw sculptor in Nevada in order to pursue music. She taught herself guitar, started playing open mics, and began touring throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan. New fans told their friends, and soon her songs had received over 1.5 million plays on MySpace. Many of her concerts started selling out, and she was asked to share the stage with such greats as Loudon Wainwright III, Colin Hay, Martin Sexton, and Lisa Loeb. She is also half of Brooklyn buzz band the Paper Raincoat, an iTunes Indie Spotlight feature.
