5 November 2012 saw the release of his debut single Black Tears through iTunes. The song received favourable four star reviews from blog Music Review Unsigned and gay website Polari, who drew comparisons to singers Scott Walker, Annie Lennox and Marc Almond. The song also received a five star average ratings from iTunes customers and has received airplay from stations including Newcastle Student Radio, who described Reeves as 'a modern-day David Bowie'.

1 March 2013 saw the release of his second single Mistaken Identity which again received five star average ratings from iTunes customers as well as positive reviews from Independent Music News and Zani blog, who compared the song's sound to T. Rex (band) and early Rolling Stones.

His third single Radio Head was released through iTunes on 23 June 2013, again receiving high ratings from iTunes customers.

The summer of 2013 saw Reeves appear as Dr. Willy Whackoff in a small-scale production of Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens at London's Leicester Square Theatre. The production was favourably received by critics, with Reeves' performance noted as 'hilarious' by Gay Times.

Shortly afterwards, he released his fourth single Smoke & Mirrors, a duet with acclaimed cabaret chanteuse Sarah-Louise Young. Quicksilver - The Masquerade Macabre was finally released through his own label Reeves Corner on 5 November 2013.

In February 2014, Reeves released Russian Roulette in response to news coverage of the Sochi Winter Olympics, with proceeds going to LGBT charities Stonewall (charity), BeLonG To and International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Youth and Student Organisation, which he wrote, recorded and released in ten days.
