Growing up in a very musical family, in Atlanta, Georgia, Rick began taking piano lessons at the age of seven.
However, he began to shy away from the piano while entering his teenage years and got more involved in
athletics. He still remembers the exact day, walking into his weekly lesson to tell his teacher he was done
with music. Week after week he rejected every piece of music she presented to him in preparation for an
upcoming recital. It was in that lesson that his teacher struck a chord in Rick that would change his life
forever. She told him to write his own song. So, at the age of 14, he did!
Today, writing music is now second nature for Rick. His music, including his new age/contemporary piano compositions, is featured across the world on radio, in movies, television documentaries, national television commercials and the Internet. Since that pivotal piano lesson, he has consistently written, recorded and performed his songs in various parts of the country. From 2001 - 2003 he toured with a Salt Lake City record label and performed concerts across the Salt Lake and Utah County's. Throughout his career he has collaborated with and performed with many popular singer/songwriters including Maren Ord, April Meservy, Cherie Call, Kenneth Cope, Michael R. Hicks, and Peter Brienholt.
He released his first solo album, entitled IN MY LIFE, in 2001, which soon found its place in the top rankings on many radio station play lists including KBYU television and radio. Rick was soon featured on numerous compilation albums. In 2003, he was invited to create his first film score and soundtrack for the motion picture, Day of Defense, a feature film released October 10th, 2003. He worked with and produced music featuring popular musicians including Ryan Shuppe, Craig Miner, Rich Dixon, Kimberly Summers and Justin Utley. Rick has worked with many top industry names, like Sam Cardon and Crawford Gates. In addition, Rick has received many awards and honors for his music. His library of genres, including such types as contemporary pop, religious, country, R&B, and new age, continues to expand as he receives more exposure to music. Rick is currently residing in Huntington Beach, CA.
In 2007, Rick was featured in a book about famous American Christians, featuring profiles of popular athletes, politicians, inventors, musicians, etc., and was published earlier in February 2007 by Spring Creek Books. The book is sold nationwide in major bookstores.
"Traveling and meeting people from all over the world simply fascinates me. It is through my music that I hope to show my love and appreciation to all those I've met and continue to meet on this journey through life. I love music with all of my heart because it is the most beautiful way to communicate, and with the wonderful mediums of today it allows me to be with the ones I love when I physically can't be there." - Rick Reeve
