Bio

Reatha Pitman is an Indie artist out of Long Beach, MS. She wrote and recorded her debut EP while serving on active duty in the US Navy. Reatha can be seen around the Mississippi Gulf Coast passionately supporting local Veteran's organizations and enjoys participating whenever she can. In October 2018, in Laurel, MS; Reatha's EP "Road On Which We Travel" was produced by Andrew Ishee.  Her music is being played on a variety of online radio stations including She Wolf Radio, BlastFM, Country Radio USA Productions, Karen's Indies, and more.

Reatha was honored to participate in both the 2018 and 2019 Mississippi Songwriters Festivals and looks forward to continuing this tradition in 2020.  She has also performed at a variety of other venues including Fishbone Alley, Lazy Magnolia, The field in Ocean Springs, and others.  This year in December she will debut at the Gulfport Harbor Lights Winter Festival and is very excited to be added to the lineup.

Reatha will tell you she is most influenced by artists such as The Judds, Martina McBride, Patsy Cline, and Reba. Her nostalgic "old country" sound has been majorly influenced by these iconic women. Reatha has dreamed of becoming a professional country artist and bringing country music to a new level her whole life, and is very excited to share this part of herself with the world. You can download her album wherever you download music.

Corona Virus 

So, it's been a while since I've posted.  Since my last post the whole world has gone into lockdown due to the covid-19 form of the corona virus.  I have never been worried since this started however, I'm not excited about being stuck at home with no where to go.  Since this started I have been staying busy writing new material as well as started a "live from the parlor" online music series which I hope you all have enjoyed.  I have another one coming up May 1.  This has been a learning curve for most musicians since we can't perform in public due to social distancing requirements and the like.  Let me know what you have been doing during this difficult time.

I am for sure looking forward to all things getting back to normal...or as close as possible.  I am also hoping to be performing at my upcoming shows after this next live from the parlor.  Let me know if you'd like to see these continue.  I'm thinking about keeping them every couple of weeks since they've really been fun and allow for my fans overseas to get to see me play.  Stay home y'all and stay safe.

Brand Ambassador/Sponsor 

Hey everyone, I am now looking to be a brand ambassador for organizations with a product or service.  What's a Brand Ambassador you ask? In exchange for sponsorship for my next album, I would take an active roll to promote and advertise your organization.  I would post your organization/company information and share posts from your sites on all my social media sites including Facebook, Website, Instagram, and Twitter.  If you're interested please send me an email at r.reatha.pitman@gmail.com or a message on social media.  I look forward to working with you and finding a way to help your business while you help me raise the funds needed to get this album recorded and released.

Recording projects 

So, I asked on all my social media if my fans wanted to see another EP or wait for a full album.  Recording music is expensive, although not as expensive as I once thought, but still pricey.  I raised money through raffles, gigs, selling merch, and crowdfunding and recorded and released my first EP roughly a year ago.  I ended up paying in the ball park of $5000 for 4 songs to be completed including all the studio time, photo's, mixing, and mastering.  I have recently been quoted $5000 for 10 songs to be recorded including mixing and mastering.  I have decided to have a hot plate fundraiser to raise this money as I think this will yield better results.  I have a number of followers and fans who all support my music but very few who actually want to financially support this endeavor.  Many musicians struggle with this as friends want to like a post or share but everyone wants to say they have no money.  What they don't understand is that if every fan, friend, family member, or follower would simply donate $2-5 there would be enough money to complete projects.  Musicians struggle to support their art and indie artists have to pay for everything themselves.  You don't have to donate large amounts and there is no minimum that is expected.  Every dollar truly counts no matter how small and if you absolutely cannot help financially be sure to share every post, event, comment, and like to be as supportive as possible.  This is a true even if you are not a fan of the genre.  Here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast we support each other regardless of genre.  Not everyone likes country or metal, etc. but we all still invite friends to like pages and share others music so that new fresh ideas are allowed the opportunity to blossom.  I look forward to reading everyone's comments and take on this blog!

New Year New Me 

Hello y'all, we are now full swing into the New Year and I for one am so excited.  This year is off to a fabulous start with lots of bookings and jams scheduled.  I even booked a National Anthem event at the local fairgrounds for a kids barrel racing event.  I love kids and veterans and any time I can do something fun with them I am totally on board.  My new years celebration was so fun.  We had fireworks and great food while celebrating the end of a decade with friends and family.  Leave a comment what you did for new years eve below.

GEAUX Tigers!! So last night was the LSU-Clemson national championship game.  If you know me, you know that I love the LSU tigers.  They had a rough start but once the defense started picking it up, LSU was going to be unstoppable.  It was a great game and the stamina of the LSU team helped them to pull ahead and take the championship. So proud of the Purple and Gold and many wishes for their continued success. 

This week I had a radio interview with Blackdog indie country radio station and it was fabulous.  If you missed it be sure to check it out on my facebook page at Reatha Pitman Music.  We talked about my EP, the weather, and a lot of other really fun stuff.  I think you'll really enjoy it.  So now that I updated everyone on my regular life lets talk about music.  If you have questions or topics for me to discuss on here please let me know so that I can share with everyone.  Also, I am still working on raising money for the new album so if you want to see new music from me soon, please visit my patreon account and at least consider donating $2/month. 

Happy New Year Everyone!! Let's make 2020 great!!

Merry Christmas Roundup 

I made it through Christmas! It was a great day spent with family and cooking.  I cooked Turkey with creole injected marinade and tony's on top, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, mustard greens in bacon grease, corn, mashed garlic potatoes, cranberry sauce, and rolls.  It was so delicious.  My turkey even came out moist and full of flavor.  I was definitely tired after being on my feet all day cooking but it was worth it...as it usually is.  Everyone seemed to enjoy it.  I'm actually a very good cook if I'm not trying some new crazy dish!  After dinner we opened presents and I got new pajama's, a new fitbit versa lite, some books, a snuggy, a framed picture, and a few other little things.  Christmas eve we spent the day with the other side of the family and really enjoyed that as well.  We spent quality time with each other and enjoyed a wonderful meal. I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas's as well, or whatever holiday you celebrate.  Next holiday up is New Years.  My plans are to spend the night with family again and shoot some fireworks.  There's nothing like spending holidays with family!  This is a short wrap up but I hope everyone enjoyed the blog today.  Remember to send me topics or questions you want answered about my life or my music and I'll be sure to get them in the blog!  Happy New Year everyone!!

Christmas is coming 

To start I want to say a big thank to everyone for all your support.  This will be my first of hopefully many months of blogs.  I will answer questions in emails, talk about other musicians, as well as share some news about upcoming events and happenings...I may even share some stories from my childhood and how I got to where I am today.  If you have a question to ask me please send me a message on FB, twitter, instagram, or you send me an email.

In this first post, I'm going to share a secret about me and what I do in my "free" time.  I am a huge fan of Hallmark.  I love how all their stories have happy endings and I like movies that always work out.  I hate movies that are too much like real life because I think movies should make us feel good and be a sort of escape from real life.  I have been watching the Hallmark Christmas movies since before Halloween! I know it's early but I just wanted to get into the season early this year, which if you know me, you know that I am an avid wait until after Thanksgiving for Christmas kind of gal.  I am currently watching Moonlight and Mistletoe which star Candice Cameron Burre.  I just love watching her.  I think she's a fabulous actress.

So Christmas is coming and I have all but a few gifts left to buy and those have been identifies, I just have to go pay for them.  I'm never this early with the gift buying.  I am always a last minute shopper but this year I have been really on top of my game.  Christmas is my favorite time of year and I love the lights and carols, and Christmas parties.  There's just something about the season and I truly believe that miracles happen at Christmas.  The season is flying by and there are only 6 days left.  This year has been nice but I'm not sure it really feels like Christmas and I'm not sure why but hopefully it will improve before Christmas day arrives.

This blog is going to be short but I hope that everyone has a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and look for another post around New Year's.  Don't forget to send me any questions for me you want me to answer!
