Ex Reyes

Artist bio

Ex Reyes is the psych-soul sound of music-dude Mikey Freedom Hart. It is a project that is based around musical community and the spark of collaboration; the inevitable result of many hours spent with talented friends in unlikely places. Ex Reyes is the subtle sophistication of the Beach Boys, the weirdness of psychedelic-era Temptations, the sonic experimentation of Phil Spektor and Delia Derbyshire, the free freneticism of dancehall, and the superb oddity of synthesizer-soaked dollar records, distilled into songs about real shit.DO SOMETHING EP, Ex Reyes' debut EP, was recorded over the past 5 years in hotel rooms, sheds, and proper studios all over the world--from Africa to New Orleans, Japan to Scandinavia--alongside Hart's travels as a top-tier session musician, sideman, and collaborator to such artists as Bleachers (Jack Antonoff), Santigold, The Cranberries, Sia, Mike D, Albert Hammond Jr., Adam Green, Sinkane, Dam Funk, and more.
