As part of the mega-launch of B.Reith’s debut, Gotee Records and AmazonMP3.com partnered together to offer a free, 4 song digital EP, exclusively at AmazonMP3.com (http://tinyurl.com/bamazgt). Over 5,796 fans have downloaded the digital EP so far, which AmazonMP3.com quoted "If you like Jason Mraz or Mat Kearney, but wish they rapped more, you might also like B.Reith".
Since B.Reith’s introduction to the music industry with his 2008 seven-song EP entitled The Forecast; the Milwaukee-native has been hailed as an artist who not only entertains, but speaks the relevant dialect of today’s culture. In addition, he’s found a knack for interviewing and hosting with his popular Something2Remember (www.something2remember.tv) video blog giving a behind the scenes look at recording, the marketing process, and insider interviews with some of today’s favorite Christian musicians.
