Dale Reince is a Milwaukee based musician, singer and song writer. Also known as Spirit Animal (currently), Thirty Thousand or 30,000, which started his solo career sometime in the early 2000's.
His music could be labeled as basic, elementary, boring, singer songwriter, indy rock, instrumental, dorky, crappy, sweet, sentimental, sad, fun and uplifting but mostly experimental. A number of simple structures and common undertows may shine through the diverse collection of music he produces.
Some of Dales' songs have transitioned into songs for the band Clementine, the band he played in with his wife (Cat Reince) and friends Alex Boyes, Matt Schmeling, Brad Nault and James Dahmann Jr. between the years of 2004 and 2008.
The band Clementine came about when Dale asked his wife and a number of close friends to join him in creating a new musical avenue for many of the songs he had written prior to the band forming. The songs he wrote which made it into the Clementine catalog included; Life of Bees, Put it Past Me, Sunshine, Bury My Head, Rolling Home, Into Space, Friction, For These Days, Everybody's On, Waking Up, My Whole Life, The Boat, and Setting Sail.
Clementine recorded many demos and were at the near end of recording their proper debut album when the band broke up in 2008.
Since the breakup of Clementine, Dale has continued to write and record music as a solo artist.
Most recently, Dale has joined his wife (Cat) and friends Alex Boyes and Laura Spencer to start a group called Ghostnotes, which would breath new life into some of the songs he wrote. Some of the songs they perform together are; Mother Maria, All My Problems, Everybody's On, Into Space, Sand, My Whole Life, and Standing on a Mountain.
