Biography

About Reco Payne

“A passion exuded like no other. True emotions bleed through a powerful voice.” When Reco Payne speaks to the love of his life, you will know she is portrayed in musical form. These feelings are simply expressed through songs written to effervescent melodies. Reco Jermaine Payne’s talent is comparable to no one. It is a refreshing, intense and rare gift to deliver the “goose pimple effect”. His energy gives an elevated state to R&B.

Most people are asking, “Where exactly did Reco come from?” To answer this question you will not have to look far: North Carolina’s very own Winston Salem Tre4. He grew up in a town called Tobaccoville. Yes it is a real place. There are so many talented, soulful and iconic figures singing gospel in that area. It is a real mecca of talent in the state of North Carolina alone, and yet it is still home for Reco Payne.

He was born into a very spiritual household. Mother Runetta, one of 12 siblings, had a brother of musical caliber. One of Reco’s older brothers and a sister both entered the clergy field. His older sister Bishop Nancetta Myers is a real mentor and inspiration to him. Two of Reco’s brothers and a nephew died violent deaths. This drives some of the pain you feel in his music. Reco was made to follow and act as the musical accompaniment. “Singing was all I ever wanted to do no matter what,” he proclaimed.

Reco’s very first performances as a child were more annoying than encouraging. “My family probably could tell it best.” “When I was four years old, my favorite song was Freak Out.” Anytime family got together, it was show time. It was later on that he found his voice. By the age of eight he was leading songs in his local church choir. “I still remember the words to the first song.” He recalls.

Some major events unfolded in Reco’s musical venture. Starting high school was the beginning. Being the youngest in the advanced music class made it really hard for him to fit in. “I remember not speaking to anyone and just singing when instructed to.” I really felt like a bird all caged up.” By being denied his freedom to fly, he simply lost his song.

It was later on in his high school career that his talents begin to shine. Performing at assemblies and talent shows led his peers to vote him “the most talented in his class.” Unbeknown to him, there was a vigilant eye watching. One of his high school substitute teachers knew the agent for the Coca Cola commercial ads. But Reco rejected the opportunity being heavily influenced by his mother and his own fear of the unknown.

Reco Payne finally reached a point of destitution due to the lack of credited musical production in the small town of Tobaccoville. Reco began to search for someone with as much passion and drive to pursue music as he had. After years of searching, it was at a local gym that a friend from high school surfaced. “I was not even expecting to record a sample demo. It just happened.” “Together we cooked that heat straight from the kitchen,” Reco says.

The spice and fire made in the home based studio were perfected!
I really can’t explain exactly what it is. You would just have to taste and see for yourself. I truly love what I do and it shows by appeasing every sense and emotion!” exclaims a passionate Reco Payne.
