Jason Reeves, an up-and-coming singer-songwriter who recently signed with Warner Bros. Records, hit the road on July 1 in Ames, IA, with dates through July 31 in San Diego, CA. WB is picking up distribution of the 23-year-old Iowa City native’s digital debut album, “The Magnificent Adventures of Heartache (and Other Frightening Tales).” The label will make a physical CD of the album widely available at retail for the first time.

Reeves has already made a splash with “Magnificent Adventures,” which has sold briskly since he released it himself by posting the tracks on his MySpace page in August 2007. Reeves’ hook-filled songs of love, hope, heartbreak and renewal, matched with his engaging tenor voice, propelled him to become the No. 1 MySpace Folk artist (unsigned) for nine months and made him a fixture in the Top 5 Acoustic (unsigned) and Top 20 Overall (unsigned) categories.

In addition, Reeves was named one of the Top Indie Singer-Songwriters of 2007 by iTunes, which also dubbed “Magnificent Adventure” one of its Top Folk Albums of 2007, giving it a five-star review after it debuted at No. 2 on the iTunes Folk chart.

Many fans will already be familiar with Reeves through his songwriting collaborations with breakthrough singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat, the first person Reeves met after he relocated to Los Angeles in March 2005, to pursue his songwriting career. Reeves co-wrote 10 tracks on Caillat’s platinum debut album Coco, including the smash hit singles “Bubbly” and “Realize,” the latter of which he also sings on, and its upcoming single “The Little Things.” Reeves has also had his songs featured on the television shows One Tree Hill and A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila.

On August 5, an updated version of “Magnificent Adventure” will be released digitally to all participating online retailers and will feature new mixes of four songs, as well as a re-recorded version of “Gasoline.”

Reeves donated all proceeds from the July 1 show to the Red Cross to benefit victims of the recent Iowa floods and encouraged fans to donate and participate in a very worthy cause.
