"The Real Return of Classic, Soulful and Sensual Sounds for Grown Folks Doing Grown Things"

The Relatable, ‘Entertainable’ & Breathtaking REB was able to get our attention with
his soulful, old school sounds on his solo freshman album, The Introduction.

ORLANDO, Florida – January 3, 2012 -This album is expected to put REB on the path to becoming on par with the likes of the legendary Luther Vandross, Barry White, Teddy Pendergrass and Charlie Wilson, to name a few. REB will not be mimicking their sounds and styles, but like them he will pay attention to the sensuality of every word and how it fits so perfectly with every note sung performed REB-style. Clearly this album is geared to the mature audience who is looking to get caught up in an orgasmic explosion of a musical experience created by their own interpretation and imagination. There’s something to be said when the listener is allowed to paint their own tasteful picture as opposed to having some main stream musical artist graphically and more often than not distastefully paint a meaningless and empty visual all in the name of selling more albums. It’s a 2-way conversation, a dialogue between REB and his listening audience. Holding true to his form, “…a gentlemen on a mission to apprehend the hearts, minds and souls”, this upcoming project will keep you listening and wanting more.

Bio

Born as Torrey Walthour, raised in sunny Orlando, Florida the soulful, sultry artist known as “REB” got his start. In 1992 Rip-it Records recording artist Raab recognized the soulful sound of a young group by the name of “Funktion”. This is the platform where the artist known as “REB” initially emerged, singing background on the soulful hit “Foreplay”. Later that year “REB” left the group Funktion and was introduced to another group (Tra-C Ray) as they was hoping for a new soulful sound. “REB’s” distinct voice was the piece to that they needed, and that's exactly what they got when “REB” joined the group. As Tra-C Ray was making their transition they change their name to Vokal. Vokal was signed to, Independent label O-Town Records in 1994, which gave “REB” the experience that he needed in the recording industry.
Accompanying such great artist as Queen Latifah, 2 Live Crew, Tony Braxton, Tag-Team, 95 South and Brian McKnight, just to name a few. “REB’s” exposure is divers and well rounded on the Mic and in front of the camera. He has participated in local Orlando projects such as “The Back to School JAM” which headlined the late R&B queen Aaliyah. This project was partnered by Vokal (along with hip-hop acts, Julian "J-GUTTA" Rowe of "The Dirty Boyz" and DJ Nasty(Producer: Smylze & SouthStar and Ludacris ) “Aint No Stoppin the Magic” was sponsored by Johnny Wright.
The newly launched project for “REB the Introduction” includes his debut single “Clap Your Hands” which heightens his soulful tones. This cut will prove to be one to be remembered with an old Rag-time tune coupled with R&B and a Hip-Hop flavor. The project includes a sweet, warmly ballads entitled, “You Got To Know”, “Room Service” , “How Deep Is Your Love” and “ Grown Folks”. “REB” was just named as “Break out R&B Artist of 2011” according to the LA Music 411 Magazine as he appears on the cover of the December issue. “REB” also appear in the Talk of Orlando Magazine as “REB the talk of Orlando”. REB is back with a new sound and CD soon to be released 2015. This is just the beginning of a long lasting, purposeful career for “REB”, the music, the man, the voice!
