iTunes Editors' Notes

Jason Reeves’ 2011 EP further reveals the singer/songwriter as a hopeless romantic. Caged Birds Set Free opens with “Song for a Waitress,” a sweet serenade with acoustic arpeggios delicately plucked as Reeves hoists his muse up on a pedestal with whispery inflections. The aptly titled “Bicycle” follows on a pedaling tempo, as Reeves plays piano and sings “I wanna build you a bicycle faster than life / So you can keep up with your dreams.” If anyone else attempted this sentiment it'd likely sound maudlin, but Reeves has a way of keeping his poetry earnest.

The song's so good that Reeves even provides an all-acoustic version before closing with the bonus track “New York in Wintertime.” It's another duet, this time with music industry mogul Kara DioGuardi.
