The Wild Reeds
The sound of The Wild Reeds weaves in between multiple genres but always comes back to the root of this bands' power: harmonies from frontwomen Kinsey Lee, Mackenzie Howe and Sharon Silva, that create an instrument in and of itself. Joined by Nick Jones and Nick Phakpiseth on drums and bass, The Wild Reeds tell modern day stories with timeless sound.
The Wild Reeds released their formal debut album 'Blind and Brave' in August 2014 at The Troubadour in West Hollywood. The album, produced by Raymond Richards at Red Rockets Glare Studios (Local Natives, Parson Redheads, Honey Honey, Dustbowl Revival), expounds on loss, love, growing up, and the experience of artists and workers pursuing their dreams.
The Wild Reeds spent most of 2016 on the road with stops at SXSW, Nelsonville Music Festival, Pickathon, Summerfest, Winnipeg Folk Festival and support and headline tours throughout the USA and Canada. In May, the band released a 3 song EP called 'Best Wishes' that continues to display the growing and maturing artistry from the 3 unique songwriters. The EP was recorded by the band at NRG Studios in Los Angeles and was mixed by Doug Boehm (Girls, Dr Dog, Twin Peaks).
The Wild Reeds are finishing 2016 working with Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Kurt Vile) at Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, CT on their next record and first for Dualtone.
