Born and raised in Los Angeles, Reed! grew up listening to Rock, Soul, Gospel and Jazz. He lists Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone as his most important musical influences. He started his first band at fifteen and quickly learned to play all the parts so he could craft a song from start to finish. Years later, a demo he produced garnered a production deal that led to his first interest from a label. Reed! drifted in and out of music via various projects until finally deciding to pursue it again in earnest with the independently produced 2007 EP "Eyes of a Child" and the full releases "Soular Return" in 2011 and "Stars Like Ours" in 2013. Reed! deftly combines Funk, Rock and Soul to create a bold musical statement. Check out his latest release, "Sunshine".
