MP3: Ace Reporter - "Untouched and Arrived"
Brooklyn Artist Releases Handpicked Tracks From Year Long Song-A-Day Project
One new song everyday for a year.
This is the ambitious project that Ace Reporter took on in 2010: writing and recording an original track every 24 hours. The threesixfive project is inspiring in its scope and spans the sonic spectrum from raw acoustic whispers to rambunctious rootsy rock to eclectic electro-sizzles and everywhere in between. "The project was all about my personal relationship to music," says Ace. "My goal was to focus on creativity at the expense of polish - last-minute panic never felt so good."
With a library of songs 365 deep, Ace Reporter is in the process of releasing a series of free EPs that showcase various handpicked tracks from the threesixfive project. The Untouched and Arrived EP hit speakers in December 2010 and highlighted Ace's repertoire for all things rock. January 2011 saw the release of the Lean Honey Lean EP, a five song offering that accentuated Ace's electro-stylings. While preparations for February 2nd's acoustically adorned Sleepyhead EP are underway, Ace is taking a moment to reflect on a favorite song from the project, "Untouched and Arrived." The title track from the first EP finds buoyant guitar work and handclaps fusing with lyrics dripping from the intoxication of wanderlust and wonderment. "I wrote 'Untouched' right after returning from a trip to a post-earthquake Chile," reports Ace. "I got home to Brooklyn and had this sense of how lucky and surreal my life here is. That's what the song is for me – this joyful celebration of being home." Download "Untouched and Arrived" and begin your auditory adventure with Ace Reporter 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 at http://www.myacereporter.com/ .
