💿 Hi, it’s a pleasure for us to have on Hardrockheavymetal DAVID REECE!! You’re Welcome!
Hi there its a pleasure for me to share my story with you and your readers!
💿 “RESILIENT HEART”, your new album, is “hot’n’ready” and will be available from Nov 9th! Can you tell us somethin’about its composition process and style? We have the privilege to listening to it in preview and we were very impressed!
Thank you..I began writing the album in 2015..I was feeling the need to go in a more heavy and more modern sounding direction.
I originally began writing with Martin Frank of the group Shotgun Revolution. We wrote the song "Karma" first and I knew that it was the template of where I wanted the sound and direction to go. Martin Frank decided to step out and I was put in contact with Marco Angioni and sent him "Karma" as a guide for my direction he answered with the music for "Wicked City Blues" and I knew he would be right to work with.
Then he introduced me to Martin Jepsen Andersen, the other guitarist, and between the three of us we created Resilient Heart.
💿 We had the sensation that RESILIENT HEART isn’t a solo album but is the great outcome of a team that worked in armony and havin’fun! Do you agree?
Yes, of course! I'm solo now but I was very lucky to be able to find good talented people to work with! We all enjoy each other's company and firstly making music should be fun.
💿 This new platter will be out via MIGHTY/TARGET. Can you tell us somethin’about the birth of relationships with them?
I did some shows with Mike Tramp in America and asked if he was satisfied with Target and he recommended them and immediately they respond ded ready to make a deal.
I thank Mike Tramp for his help.
💿 RESILIENT HEART will be out also in a gorgeous limited vinyl edition with a different tracklist. An intentional choice or only a matter related with the length of LP?
It is beautiful! It's blood red and yes it was a matter of length plus I felt a different running order would make it more interesting.
💿 After two well-received album, the SAINTED SINNERS project has reached the end or it’s just a break?
I don't know.. Let me say that this is a major reason I am solo because Frank Pané is in Bonfire and it's his priority.
I have to say being in Bonfire was a horrible experience and I refuse to wait around for openings when Frank is available.
I own half the group name so for now there are no future plans to continue.
Being solo allows me more creative and business freedoms.
💿 You’ll be on tour to promote RESILIENT HEART! Can you tell us somethin’in preview about the setlists of these gigs?
Yes, we of course will showcase many songs from Resilient Heart but I also play some songs from "Eat the heat" (Accept's album) and some from Bangalore Choir.. it's a killer setlist!
💿 We love the new REECE logo! Can you tell us somethin’ about? Who made it?
Originally my brother and I created a sort of Terminator skull with feathers on the headdress but it wasn't working so we reached out to Gernot Elmer a great friend who's involved with a lot of my creative promotion and the logo came from the three of us.
It's really great on the cover and t-shirts people seem to love it! 💿 Thank you so much for your time, David! See you soon on Hardrockheavymetal! I wish to thank you and all you readers and see you all on tour in November! Please see Reece Inc. or David Reece Official on Facebook for all dates!
