Reggie Lorenzo Savage was born on October 18, 1983 in Kansas City, Missouri, raising himself in Phoenix, Arizona. Born and raised on the likes of Michael Jackson and Boyz 2 Men, Reggie Lorenzo Savage has demonstrated his desire to be an entertainer since he could burp on his own. “ I remember when I was 10 maybe 11, the songs that always seem to make me want to get up and sing along to , just so happened to be RnB”, Reggie Confesses. “I think RnB is my utmost favorite genre by a landslide!” Reggie continuously wrote songs while developing his vocal ability starting at the age of 16. Growing up, his father figure was absent and without the presence of his father, it was easy to slip in and out of dips in his life. Just then, it came to realization that the music came alive to Reggie in the certain situations that he dealt with himself. Support for this inspiring individual was hard to find, music became a person, it became a support system when letting go of family situations. At this age Reggie realized how incredibly effortless it was to go down an insignificant road in his life. Music was that escape that we hear most “A list” celebrities/stars speak upon today. It was that outlet where he became fearless having the only thing standing in front of him. It was his dream and the willingness to become a successful artist. It was then that a drastic decision to change his lifestyle and environment came about.
Reggie could never settle for “an ordinary life”, or a job for that matter. His body nature and mind were too creative to tame into a corporation box. His ability to create a music track in the studio was mind blowing. Some may say it’s because he’s had over 15 years of experience around the music, but his Producer’s agree that anyone who can arrange a song and concept in 30 minutes is just simply born to mold music. However, there was an almost infinite struggle for Reggie to get to where he is now. Reggie is what you would refer to as a “wildcard” in a deck of cards or in this case a handful of musicians. In the studio he is labeled as a music composer/singer/songwriter/Emcee, but overall, he’s just simply talented. While constantly striving for an equal balance between his singing/dancing and skating, he has opportunely emerged as a skillful and quick-witted songwriter anywhere, and everyone. Anybody who knows Reggie personally would agree to his main iconic influence being Michael Jackson and Usher. His influences lie within the true soul singers of the 90′s, such as Johnny Gill, Boyz II Men, Tevin Campbell, Jon B, Az Yet, Brian McKnight and the list goes on and on.
No matter the genre or tempo, Reggie will continue to make “Inspiring” and “Memorable Music” for years to come. “There is something that happens to a person when you hear a song playing back in your head, it was perfect, couldn’t have been sang better by anyone else! I’m talking about that moment when you hear a song, and chills roll down your arm! Music has had that effect on my life from the introduction of hearing musicians and their craft”, Reggie utters. Reggie has yet to release his music on a serious level due to his struggles as a young man and artist surviving in the Grand Canyon State.\u2028\u2028 Around this time Mr. Savage’s life was due to change forever, in a direction he was not anticipating. Ronnie Lorenzo Savage, was then born, lighting a fire beneath his ambition. This only opened his eyes to learn that he was not only chasing his dreams, but he was now striving for success among his son. The grind soon became a lifestyle. “For my son I will touch every corner of the earth to seek out a better life than I had as a child! Quitting is not an option,” says Reggie.
The end of 2009, Reggie received a phone call from the CEO/ Executive Producer of Indie League Records, a Multi-Genre Recording label in Phoenix, Az. The Label was interested in meeting Reggie and going over his work. In just months Reggie was in the studio recording 5 days a weeks and constructing more than 4 songs in an entire month. “Indie League was a helping hand to artists like myself when I was in need of recording my art”, Reggie believes. The Indie Label did everything itself, from production, distribution, marketing, while supporting me as an artist under their label. Indie League presented quality music to my ears, making it a believable label. The Label presented opening positions to me, rather than labeling me as just a quality artist. I am now more knowledgeable in the areas I was missing that appeared as a necessity to become a successful artist.”\u2028\u2028 From being solo to groups, a backup singer and now being solo under the Independent label he is now signed with, what more would be to Show then his dedication to his music? According to Reverbnation.com, Reggie is now currently ranked # 9 in the state of Arizona for the R&B genre category. Plays and downloads are soon turning into fan counts of 46,000.
With the album being exactly what its says, Reggie has a few tricks up his sleeves with singles off of the release of his debut album, “Versatile”.

Reggie has a few tricks up his sleeves of singles to lead off the release of his debut album, “Versatile”. Some may ask, “ what does music mean to you?” Many restate the most common answer, “it’s an escape, it sets me free”. But if there’s one thing you must leave with when knowing why this artist does what he does today, it is for the allowance of Reggie being able to remember the best times of his life growing up. Although Reggies grandmother is not with him today, listening and remembering the music they shared together brings back vivid memories. He enjoyed music when his grandmother would throw on records/vinyl and seeing her ecstatic emotions when listening to her collection of music. “I want that feeling! I want to create music with the capability of giving that feeling to the listeners! To create a song that you could feel and zone out to for the rest of your life! My dream is to make music that inspires others to get up and strive for their dreams and not to settle for an ordinary life! I want to be an example of that!”
