"It's Time" (1996)
On "Let's Try it Another Way" a tribute to Syd Barrett compiled by the Laughing Madcaps (a Syd Barrett fan chat group website) you can hear Pitt's version of "Baby Lemonade"; and, from the following year, on a Pink Floyd tribute compiled by the same people, called "Before there was Dark Side", you can hear Pitt's version of "Fearless".


Feeling a bit camera shy


Pitt Reeves' recent performance as frontman with his band Million Voices, at the Rally to Stop the Genocide in Darfur (Pioneer Courthouse Square, Portland, OR, April 30, 2006) brilliantly illustrates what his music is about--with friends by his side, performing great songs that reach their full potential when done in service to a greater cause. From the first song, the electric version of "Be Kind", to the reggae anthem "We've Gotta Make It", to the funky afro-beat of "Love Powah", to the inspirational "As One People",
the band set the right tone for an important event, and left the crowd clamoring for more.
Pitt's music first began to draw attention back in the mid-90's when he founded the Trance Plants, a six-piece reggae/ska/rock experiment that played regularly at places like Laurlethirst Pub, Belmont Inn, Moody's, Mt' Tabor Theatre, The Caribou, the Tugboat, etc. The debut CD "It's Time" (1996) which Pitt also produced, was picked up by Moonska Records, and was described in their catalog as the first time anyone had created a fusion of reggae/ska and 70's era prog rock. John the Hobbit called it "indubitably funky". The reggae single "Chant Earthlings" was listed in The Church of Northwest Music's Baker's Dozen (KBOO 90.7 fm), and another single, "It's Up to You" got radio airplay in Seattle and at WLIU fm in Long Island, NY.
Since then, Pitt has been writing, recording an ever-growing list of songs, and performing solo in Portland, San Francisco, New England, NYC, and London, UK. When in Portland, he also performs as frontman for Million Voices, a new incarnation of his previous band, the Last Mojito (which became famous for their ability to "throw down for 4 hours with only 2 hours notice"). In other bands--played bass for Tony Favazza Soundtrack; played lead vox/guitar for Winston Legthigh.
Three pieces of Pitt's music were used on the soundtrack of the internationally acclaimed, award-winning independent feature film "The Time We Killed"(2004).
Pitt's sound is built upon a foundation which formed when he was a music major in college, where he first began to develop his unique synthesis of music theory, improvisation, and Indian Raga. Add to that his years of fronting reggae/funk bands and his wide range of musical influences--Pink Floyd, the Wailers, Bowie, Bauhaus, Ravi Shankar, Lennon, Dylan, Fela, Toots, Scratch, Yes, Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, Skip James, to name a few--and you begin to understand why his music defies categorization.
