After a nearly 20-year hiatus from music while pursuing other artistic endeavors, Reilly was drawn back to music after his young daughters found his guitars in the closet.

With strong emotional inspiration based on fatherhood, sobriety, and the recent death of his mother, Reilly penned the soundtrack to the latest chapter of his life—an American story that could be filmed anywhere from a dusty roadside bar, a Midwest farmhouse, or a beach in New England.

The sound of the tracks and Reilly’s voice echo his lifelong musical heroes, including Johnny Cash, Tom Waits and David Bowie. Smart and witty lyrics lead you on a storytelling journey with a pure Americana sound and infectious pop sensibility.
