Born and raised in Atlanta, GA of his father's church, there is no denying his southern influence. Filling in from a young age on any instrument that was needed in that lively pentecostal church, he quickly began molding his musical roots in black gospel and hymns. It was clear through his youth, he was being groomed to be a musical figure in the church world but like many of us, he realized there was more to life and more to faith than “church”.
After relocating to Savannah, GA, his rediscovery of his faith and his music began. He never thought as himself as a writer, but in 2014 he wrote his first EP titled ‘Magnolia Bloom”. Writing became something as equal to playing instruments for people and definately more fulfilling than singing and playing covers at the local bars.
2017 is a promising year for Isaac and his band. Their new record titled "Young or Old" is set to release in October. In the last few years, they've grown as a band and evolved their sound into a unique blend of rock, folk, and alt country pop while keeping a soulful approach.
Reuben Bidez grew up in Fayetteville, GA, a small town near Atlanta. He’s been singing and performing for as long as he can remember. “In grammar school, I was always the class clown,” he says. “I’d do anything for a laugh, but I didn’t really hit my stride until I joined the chorus.”
Bidez taught himself to play guitar after landing a job in a small mom and pop music store. “They gave me a job, despite the fact that I didn’t know how to play guitar. I learned on the job and discovered I had a natural musical ability. I started playing for my church youth group’s Wednesday night services. Not everyone would show up each week, so I taught myself bass and drums, to fill in for whoever was missing.”
During his years at Georgia Tech, Bidez started a rock band. They toured the Southeast and put out two EPs and an album before disbanding. Bidez had been writing upbeat pop tunes during his church years, but the songs he wrote for the band had a more personal, introspective tone. After graduation, he stayed in Atlanta, performing at open mics; the songs he put up on ReverbNation won him thousands of followers, but he was struggling to find his place in the Atlanta music scene. After some soul searching, he felt his best career move was to relocate to Nashville. “It was a leap of faith, but I had to do it. The fact that thousands of others are here trying their hardest, makes me want to try harder.”
The move to Nashville gave his career the expected boost. He put out Colors In My Eyes, a self-produced acoustic EP, released a single called
“Learning to Love You,” and landed a video of “Can We Survive” on the American Songwriter website. The magazine praised the music’s “rich, soulful sound.” Bidez will be touring to support Turning to Wine, both solo and with a five-piece band. “The band shows are more raucous than the record,” he says. “Live, we can reinvent the songs, stretch out a bit and give them a different feel.”
