Ace to Unveil Live Show, Releases Single From threesixfive Project EPs
Ace Reporter dedicated himself to making music in 2010, immersing himself in the monumental threesixfive project. In 2011 he is bringing the music from the bedroom to stages of the city, starting February 17th with his first live show at Cameo Gallery.
In addition to hitting the stage, Ace Reporter is happy to be hitting speakers with the release of a new single from his Lean Honey Lean EP. The electro-laced single, “Pepsicosign,” combines a haze of dirty synths with an infectious, hard hitting backline. Set against the backdrop of Long Island City’s famed Pepsi-Cola sign, the heartfelt narrative finds Ace imagining leaving the city in search of a better life in which he’s a “luckier man” working in a “buttercup bank,” only to realize that he already has everything he’ll ever need: his friends and loved ones. “I tell you softly to believe” sings Ace, “in people, language, and in me.” Believe in Ace Reporter and download ‘Pepsicosign” today.
In 1986 a young Ace Reporter (also born as Chris Snyder) saw Itzhak Perlman playing violin on Sesame Street and became enamored with the world of classical music. A few years later, Ace landed his first gig as a singer as the boy soprano on the soundtrack for The Crow. His voice appeared in dozens of movies, TV shows and commercials throughout the course of the next several years. An electric guitar and a creative spark led Ace from recording tracks in his garage to forming The States in 2002, a band he spent 7 years with, releasing 3 albums and playing over 300 shows. With The States on permanent hiatus, the threesixfive project was born in Brooklyn in 2010 and can be found in its entirety here: http://myacereporter.com/ .

Check point 3 of 2011... location: Chicago. Savant heads home and tabs the rising southside tandem R.J. & Technique for his most recent #CrashCourse leak, the "Cypher Pas De Trois". Forging a homage of sorts to one of hip hop's cornerstones, the cypher, the 3 emcees seamlessly trade bars over a beat box based, eargasm of an instrumental laced by Vancouver's rising sun, Ebrahim aka EebSoFresh.
