  • The Wild Reeds

    The Wild Reeds

    Over the past year The Wild Reeds have transformed from a three part harmony driven band to a full indie folk rock force that has been sweeping the West Coast. In 2013 they toured California multiple times playing festivals such as Make Music Pasadena, Echo Park Rising, Claremont Folk Festival, Lightning in a Bottle, and successfully captured large audiences every Monday night in December with their Holiday Residency at The Satellite.
     
    On August 9th, 2014 the band will be releasing their formal debut album, Blind and Brave, which was produced by Raymond Richards at Red Rockets Glare (Parson Redheads, Honey Honey, Local Natives, Dustbowl Revival). The album release will kick off during a very special show at the historic Troubadour.
     
    Currently the members of The Wild Reeds hold up the fort all over California, from Koreatown to Highland Park to Hollywood – coming together to rehearse right in the heart of Hollywood. Together they are strong advocates for California, specifically Los Angeles.
     
    Blind and Brave illustrates the story of the working class, and encourages listeners to genuinely care about the place they inhabit, keep it beautiful, connect with people, and be brave. The message found in these songs is that you have to get through the hard stuff to get to the good stuff, just as you have to go through the bad parts of town to find the best parts, whether it be a venue down an old dark alley way, or a friend’s house at the top of a hill. In everything you do, do it out of love.
     
    With their debut album to be released August 2014 and a bright future ahead, we can only expect great things from The Wild Reeds this year. They will be joining Newport Folk Festival’s sister of the west, Way Over Yonder in September with artists such as Jackson Brown, Local Natives, Lucinda Williams, and speak of plans to tour the West this fall.

  • Kyle Neal

    Kyle Neal

    Kyle Neal 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. Kyle has played guitar for Brother and toured with Robert Jon and the Wreck for two years. 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.

    The songs on the Morning Light EP come from a place of brutal honesty. Brimming with hymnal triumph, Kyle takes you to the depths of their personal hell and back, finding reasons to still rejoice along the way. Kyle's is a voice inflected with a biblical cadence and weight that brings to mind the poems of William Butler Yeats, if Yeats drank Southern whiskey and could carry a tune. At the end of the bottle, Kyle Neal manages to strike a uniquely American sound that is at once both unflinchingly honest and true to experience.
