Reece Young takes on the A-Z challenge

Our A-Z challenge is a fun way to get to know the many bands and artists out there. Today it’s the turn of Reece Young to tell us all about themselves!

In today’s A-Z challenge, we asked Reece Young to tell us all about himself and his latest singles as he prepares for more new music coming soon!

A song that made you want to make music?

Heavydirtysoul (live specifically) – twenty one pilots

Best rider you have had?

Got PB&J once. Pretty cool.

Craziest moment you’ve experienced in music?

Opening for AVOID on this last tour was surreal. I looked up to those dudes for a long time, getting to share the stage with them felt like a dream.

Deepest lyric one of your songs features?

I’ve got one song I sampled my cat’s meow. He’s really proud of it. I didn’t give him writing credit because he bit me that same morning.

Easiest song you wrote?

We wrote am I wrong in maybe 2 hours and now it’s being played on SiriusXM Octane. Such an insane thought.

Favourite song in your set?

I love playing LOW live. We open with it and it really gets the people going.

Guest you’d most like to feature on your record?

Tyler Joseph, I’ll pay you whatever you want, man.

Hardest thing about being a musician?

Currently, I’m in a bit of a transitional period. I need a job to pay the bills still. I was faced with an ultimatum of quitting my desk job to pursue music more seriously, and that’s exactly what I did. Now I get free coffee and my nights are free. 

Interesting fact about you?

Im named after the terminator character Kyle Reese. Not kidding. My parents had that on one day and were like “Lets name our first born son that”

Jokes you like to tell?

Feel like ive been joking in every answer so far

Key to writing a song?

Being able to sing is huge. Can’t have a song without that usually. 

Longest distance you’ve travelled to play a show?

We drove to the north pole last tour to play for santa and his elves. Still on the naughty list, not stoked.

Most inspiring musician you’ve experienced?

Twenty one pilots. The reason i got into music, the best live show ive ever seen.

New band/artist you’d recommend?

Check out grave lust and more weight. Two of my favorites underground right now.

Opening for this band/artist would be ideal?

Bring Me The Horizon please im begging you take me out.

Place you’d most like to tour?

Japan would be SICK. Huge anime guy, love the culture.

Quote that you’d like to pass on to our readers?

Fear is the mind-killer. Don’t let it beat you.

Reason for the title of your forthcoming release?

You’ll have to wait and see guys.

See me live at?

I tour the southeast of the US in August!

The old days of music were better than the current, do you agree?

Erase tik tok from the history of the world.

Unusual merchandise?

Would love to sell tiny Reece cat clothes. 

What do your fans mean to you?

Once I have those, they’ll be more important than myself to me. 

X-rays or any treatments needed for performance-related injuries?


You’re late for a show, whose fault is it?

Most certainly Caleb’s, my drummer. That guy is never on time. Drummers amirite?

Zoo animal that best describes your personality?
