What Love Is All About is Reeve Coobs' first full-length studio recording, and is set for release at the end of summer 2013. The warm, hazy days of the pre-autumnal South seem to provide the perfect setting for a record that reflects joy, heartbreak, redemption and loss, in songwriting that is at once universal and deeply personal. From song to song, the music moves from melancholia to sweetness to suppressed rage, with a bit of whimsy sprinkled throughout. The common thread is love, with its many and sometimes nearly unrecognizable incarnations.
What Love Is All About is eclectic yet cohesive. Reeve's unique new sound doesn't stray too far from her original folksy-pop beginnings; but it represents a more rocking, more mature incarnation of her music. She and her producer Jeff Williams have created a soundscape of acoustic and electric influences that feel familiar yet are distinctly original. "Jeff has been such a huge part of my songwriting these past few years. He has really pushed me to be better and he's shown me how to mold a plain melody and lyrics into something interesting and beautiful. I feel like we share the same brain sometimes, he'll record a guitar part over one of my songs and I could swear it's exactly what was playing in my head while I was writing it."
Reeve plays with her "Band of Men" which include Jeff Williams (electric guitar/producer), Jason Atkins (keyboard), Flavio Mangione (bass), and Jonathan Erickson (drums).
