Continuing their rise from regional favorites to international recognition Wisconsin recording artists Reason One were recently featured with their song "Ghosts" on Breakthru Radio by DJ Jack Rabid from New York. Reason One also received a glowing review of their first album called "Little Red" in the summer issue of The Big Takeover magazine also from New York, known as the Indie/Alt-Rock "Bible" since 1981. Reason One is currently recording their 2nd album to be called "Love Homicide", the follow-up to" Little Red."

Reason One has performed with national and international acts Finger Eleven, The Maine, Augustana, Nazareth, CCR and Eddie Money as well as headlining shows in Chicago, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Madison, Duluth, Eau Claire WI. and Thunder Bay Canada.

"The album brings energy and reckless abandon to tunes of ghosts,lions and insanity," writes Duluth News-Tribune music writer John Ziegler. "New Beat Street has crunchy guitars riffing chordal waves under lyrics of new days and phony golf pros. The pure adrenaline the group plays with is intense and electric. It's music that demands your attention."

Mark Suppanz of The Big Takeover magazine says "On songs such as the violin-laced "Ghosts" and the driving "New Beat Street," their crisp, radio-friendly sound hearkens back to the late '80's/early '90's, when country-flecked alterna-rock bands were abundant. Elsewhere, the grunge-like guitars are meatier and thicker--see the opening "Sweet Insanity" and the metal-tinged "Baby Are You Lonely?" Throughout, robust-voiced Hanson alternates between a sensitive, thoughtful croon and an authoritative, sandpaper-rough growl. A follow-up LP is already in the works, but for now, "Little" packs a solid punch!"
