DR Melo Thee Promo Machine Bio:
DR Melo: Jose Reyes Jr, was born in EPT aka Chuco Town; El Paso, Texas. Doc attended Socorro High School and played baseball with MLB Shortstop, Omar Quintanilla.
After graduating high school he immediately joined the military in 2000. Served with the 173rd Airborne Bde in 2003 in Kirkuk, Iraq; chose to pass up one of the few Airborne jumps in 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, TX. Even with such predicament, Bianco continued working on his music, and DR Melo began to work with him. While using the time as productive as possible and under the influence of Bianco; DR Melo learned more about the professional way to do business, the music industry, and picked up tips on how to sing for audiences.
After Iraq, DR Melo chauffeured for Bianco in Italy and the entourage of Charolastras. After a short period attending performances with Bianco, DR Melo relocated to Colorado. Finishing his service with the National Guard, he met talented new comers M.R.S. and DamonStration in 2004. Inspired by the young talent, he decided to continue what some had mentioned before about his singing; and with them 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 beat. Deeper Than Poetry Ent. and Young King Nation united to collaborate, and are actively building their business resume; frequently producing mixtapes, and constantly seeking opportunities to expand musically.
Love, Family, Music, People
The idea had been rolling in DR Melo’s mind for a while in 2004, but started emerging in late October. Then He came across M.R.S and DamonStration and as they discovered each other’s passion and love for music they decided to start a group. Yet, not officially in a group because all collaborating artist work with other artists; they decided to still continue this very family oriented foundation in the music business. DR Melo, the CEO of Deeper Than Poetry Entertainment, share the founding name of the company with M.R.S. We are working on more music so we can make a new family of artists. We want to make this business a family like experience yet 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.
This company was started in Pueblo, CO in 2004, its Head Quarters are in Denver, CO, but resides in Las Vegas, NV.
Raised in EPT and stationed in North Carolina then Italy, DR Melo traveled to Germany (his favorite), London, England, and Pamplona, Spain. He loves to travel and is eagerly awaiting his big break to visit his long admired destinations: Japan, Brazil, Dominican Republic and Jamaica. He enjoys chatting with people, loves to learn new languages, and loves learning about different cultures. He is very multicultural and continues to open his mind to other life styles; especially music. After finishing his active duty service, he decided to relocate to Colorado to help his grandmother. Loves Denver, CO and wants to settle down there, but at this time resides in Las Vegas, NV. He is working towards touring and traveling in the U.S., Latin America, Europe, and Asia. Sometime in the future he is looking forward to purchasing a home in Denver, CO; a summer home in EPT; and a ranch in Wyoming.
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 the family circumstances could not 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 the military. 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!” People, are one of his top priorities in life and at times become more important than he. He is a loving, dedicated man waiting for the PERFECT aka; the right women for him to settle down and raise a family with someday. For now, his attention is completely set on his music, impacting people in a positive manner, and his career.
