DR Melo Bio:
Jose Reyes Jr, was born in El Paso, TX September 29, to Elvira and Jose Sr. followed by his sister Daisy. Played high school baseball with MLB / SS, Omar Quintanilla.
After graduating from Socorro High School, he immediately joined the military in 2000. Served with the 173rd in 2003 in Kirkuk, Iraq and chose to pass up one of the few Airborne jumps in war history. He gave the once in a life time opportunity to one of his pals, because he wasn’t to enthused about the idea, and felt as if he did not deserve to take away such an occasion from someone that was waiting for something as important as this. At times he comments in a joking manner, “I declined history because I wanted to make my own, lol!” While in Iraq, DR Melo met R&B singer Bianco from Houston, Texas. Even with such predicaments war brings, Bianco continued working on his music, and DR Melo began to work with him. While using the time as productively as possible and under the direction of Bianco, DR Melo learned and picked up tips on how to improve his live performance and vocals. He also picked up some knowledge to become better involved in the professional side of the music industry.
After Iraq DR Melo chauffeured for Bianco in Italy and the entourage of Charrolastras. After a short period attending performances with Bianco, DR Melo relocated to Colorado. Finishing his service with the National Guard, he met talented new artist Michelle aka M.R.S in 2004. Inspired by the young talent, he decided to continue singing because some had taken notice and mentioned he had a nice voice; and thus created A.D.A.P.T. (As Deep As Poetry Team). In 2008 DR Melo met Joseph Jr from Young King Nation and was featured on one of JR’s authentic beats. Here on the story continues to develop with various tours with Grammy Award winning Bone Thugs, Bizzy Bone, and opening acts for Baby Bash, MC Magic, and world renowned Lowrider Magazine Shows in various states. DR Melo continues to pursue his dream and is always willing to take on any challenge.
My desire is to inspire the next and a new generation of people and artists. We want to make this business a family like experience yet very professional; that helps artists and people develop in every aspect of their lives. We not only want to see artists reach their goals, but also grow as people; impacting lives where ever they step foot.
The idea had been rolling in DR Melo’s mind for a while in mid 2004, but started emerging in late October. Then he came across M.R.S and as they discovered each other’s passion and love for music they decided unite and create music. Yet, not officially in a group because all collaborating artist work with other artists; they decided to still continue this very family oriented business in the music industry. DR Melo, the CEO of Deeper Than Poetry Entertainment, attributes the founding name to a conversation with M.R.S. On August 2014 Andy Herrera; DJ Kane's manager & President of URBANO LEGACY RECORDS, offered Jose Reyes Jr the position of A&R Midwest Representative.
This company was started in Pueblo, CO in 2004, and its Head Quarters is based out of Denver, CO.
DR Melo loves music because it has always been there for him through the hard, lonely, tough times. As a young child he wanted to sing, but because of his family circumstances it wasn’t affordable and he couldn’t attend competitions or even put time into singing. Family issues also affected his personal life and belief in ever making music, yet the desire to entertain, inspire, and help people still dwelled inside his heart. As the issues grew, he was determined to change his life style and moved away through signing up in the U.S Army. Learning new ideas, seeing new places, and meeting new people helped him grasp new ideals from a different perspective; then on, acquiring courage, leadership skills, and respect for life.
These new conditions began to transform him into the man that he is; yet constantly evolving into a new man daily. He is a very family oriented gentleman with old school morals, manners, business like demeanor; and at the appropriate times jester like. Like he always says; “Mom brainwashed me, lol!” Developing and inspiring people, is one of his top priorities in his life. He is a loving, dedicated man waiting for the right women for him to settle down and raise a family with someday. For now, his full attention is completely set on his music, impacting people in a positive manner, and his career.
For Love, Family, Music, Children, and a better world
