Joe Reyes is a working musician from San Antonio, Tx. The unofficial heavy metal capital of the world. He grew up playing in bands that played just that kind of music. Then a friend gave him a Miles Davis record. And then he played in bands like 1980's era Miles Davis. Then he played an acoustic guitar for 20 years in Lara & Reyes. Now he plays in Buttercup and The Swindles and records by himself at home. Can you hear any of those various influences in his music now? Probably not. Because he forgot to mention that he made his Aunt Bea buy him a copy of The Beatles' 'HELP' when he was 6. Maybe now it makes more sense.
