New To Me SOTBMusic: @ReoCragun - "It's Over"

This is my first time hearing music from Reo admittedly. Because of that, I'll go ahead and lob up his bio after I get into the track. After going viral with "Inconsiderate," a track that reached #3 on Spotify's Viral 50 charts, he's back with "It's Over." I'm feeling it, because of its Tory meets Abel vibes. It's syrupy and mesmerizing, but manages to stand out among the sea of syrupy vibes due to its realness and the sheer fact that its chorus is aggressive as hell, while still maintaining the syrupy daze. An interesting track that definitely has the qualities of a dope track. So, check it out below. And, as promised, here's a bit of Reo's bio (provided through a PR).

Reo Cragun was raised in Vancouver, Washington, by two single mothers (his own mother and his aunt), during the incarceration of his father that would last until Reo Cragun’s high school graduation. During this stage of his life, he excelled in academics, achieving full scholarships for universities in Washington, eventually pursuing his degree in Biology in the hopes of becoming a doctor.

Simultaneously, he honed his musicianship that began early in his youth, picking up a new instrument to learn every year since the second grade until he could play violin, trumpet, guitar, piano, and more. However, midway through college, unexpected situations forced him to drop out. While he was working in the produce section of Costco, destiny realigned his path — it was through a network of connections that began with a coworker at Costco that Reo Cragun met his eventual manager, Dee.

After hearing a clip that Reo Cragun had recorded the night before, Dee instantly understood the potential. A session was set up for later that same day. Dee looked Reo Cragun up and down, and listened to the part-time Costco employee’s ideas.

“You’re moving to LA,” said Dee. “You’ll be a star.”

If he keeps putting out tracks like "It's Over," I'll think that Dee's got Future Sight like a gotdamned Pokemon.
