We are Reason|Define, an all female hard rock/metal band based in Charlotte, NC. If you are a fan of catchy rock-style riffs, powerful melodic vocals, and breakdowns then you have come to the right place!

Our favorite artists are all over the map, which builds a diverse foundation to our unique sound. Some of our favorite bands are Tonight Alive, Every Time I Die, State Champs, Beartooth, A Day to Remember and Coheed & Cambria to name a few. We have a super high energy live show that keeps our fans coming back for more!

After winning the 2016 award for Best Rock Band of the Year at the Carolina Music Awards, we released our debut album Far From Strangers in March of 2017. Since then we have played shows in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Tennessee, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, and Indiana.  We ended 2018 strong by releasing our first single from our second album, In Memory…, on October 26th called Pointing Fingers. On March 1st, 2019 we released our sophomore album In Memory… and went on a release tour.

We have spent the summer of 2019 touring more states than ever before. We played Rockfest in Cadott, WI in July and finished out the summer with a run through Texas.

“These ladies have proven to have the tenacity and passion for manifesting their dreams into reality and the talent to back it up.” - Patricia Jones from MCXV
