Born into a Greek and Italian family that believed strongly in both the power of the mystical and the power of music (Reed’s father, Alto Reed, rose to fame playing saxophone in Bob Seger’s Silver Bullet Band), Reed first began writing her own songs as a way of working through the emotional tumult of adolescence. After dropping out of college in Chicago and moving to New York, she released her debut album, ‘Chariot,’ to universal praise in 2016. Vice Noisey called the record “near-magical,” while Paste raved that it “bleeds authenticity,” and Popdust hailed it as “bold, daring, and visceral.” The collection landed Reed dates supporting the likes of Citizen Cope and Mason Jennings, among others, and earned her festival slots in both the US and Europe. She currently lives in Mexico City with her husband and collaborator Erik Deutsch, who has performed and recorded with everyone from Norah Jones and Leftover Salmon to Shooter Jennings and The Dixie Chicks.
