The Wild Reeds can be defined by one word: Harmony. However, the music is nearly indefinable. The sound from this LA based band fronted by Kinsey Lee, Mackenzie Howe and Sharon Silva dips in and out of multiple genres - some etherial folk, a hint of country twang and some rock and roll rhythm (from Nick Jones and Nick Phakpiseth), but it all comes back to the root of this band's power: the fact that Lee, Howe and Silva harmonize like triplets separated at birth.
In the past year, the Los Angeles based band supported such acts as Noah Gundersen, Langhorne Slim, Della Mae, Spirit Family Reunion and Israel Nash and they've made appearances at Way Over Yonder Festival, Outside Lands, Echo Park Rising, Claremont Folk Festival, and Lightning in a Bottle.
The Wild Reeds released their formal debut album "Blind and Brave," in August 2014 at The Troubadour in West Hollywood. The album, produced by Raymond Richards at Red Rockets Glare Studios (Local Natives, Parson Redheads, Honey Honey, Dustbowl Revival), expounds on loss, love, growing up, and the experience of artists and workers alike pursuing their dreams.
A year out from the "Blind and Brave" release finds The Wild Reeds crafting new material for their second release in Los Angeles and completing a full US tour in the fall with stops at the AMA Festival in Nashville in September, The Bluegrass Situation Festival at the Greek Theater in LA, the CMJ festival in New York and NPR's Tiny Desk Concert.
