When I saw The Wild Reeds open for Little Green Cars nearly a year ago, I knew they were something special. The combination of pure and simple songwriting, angelic harmonies, and diverse instrumentation created the perfect landscape for a style of indie folk that felt like home.
The three ladies fronting the band all take turns singing lead and switch between guitar, banjo, and accordion depending on the song. Backed by a solid rhythm section, the songs move as smoothly as water, and after a fair amount of time writing and recording with producer Raymond Richards, The Wild Reeds debut album, Blind and Brave, is set to be released in just a few short weeks.
The title track touches on life in Los Angeles where musicians work harder than the average music fan might expect to create their art. The song explores the idea of living amongst other artists of all sorts while creating a home for oneself that embraces the diversity of this complex lifestyle.
The Wild Reeds will be releasing their debut with a sure-to-be-impressive show at The Troubadour on August 9th followed by an appearance at Way Over Yonder fest later this year. It will be a great show and a night to remember, so be sure to pick up your tickets now.
