The Wild Reeds:
Beneath the hair and the torn tights lie the folk-rock melodies and jazzy overtones that is The Wild Reeds. Since December 2009, The Wild Reeds have shared a common purpose, to work hard and develop good, honest music that reflects the deepest caverns of their hearts. The Wild Reeds is composed of three parts, the enchanting Natalie Nicoles, the fearless Sharon Silva and the high-spirited Kinsey Lee. The three young women rotate around the stage exchanging roles and tossing around a variety of instruments such as guitar, harmonium, banjo, auto harp, and mandolin while wooing their audiences with their acclaimed three-part harmonies. The Wild Reeds strive to create music that, like their lives, reflects a constant state of progression. As brave young women in the ruthless realm of the Los Angeles music scene, these ladies carry the day with their playful personalities and eclectic talents. The band name was inspired by the Chinese parable, The Oak and the Reed, the band, like the reeds blowing in the wind, embrace a surprising strength when they overcome the trying storm. To date, these lovely ladies have independently released two albums (Songs for the Morning, Afternoon, and Evening and Even When the Strong Winds Blow), toured the West coast, and played a myriad of places in the Los Angeles music scene. We can only expect to see more exciting messages come from these highly motivated musicians. Stay tuned, educate yourself, and enjoy the inspiring and salient tunes of The Wild Reeds.
The Far Country is an American tour de force, capturing a snapshot of the entire country's tragic depths and persistent hope through one man's personal struggles. He's been writing music since he was 14 and his latest EP, Morning Light, shows the kind of maturity that can only come from having toured coast to coast experimenting with everything from love to alcohol to Jesus Christ.
