Reed KD Makes "Perfectly Orchestrated" (NPR) Music In His Bedroom
‘In Case The Comet Comes’ Lands June 9
For much of 2007 and 2008, Reed KD lived out of the back of his VW Vanagon. Awakened by garbage trucks in L.A., waiting out tornados in the Midwest, and eating deep-fried turtle in Kentucky, there has been no shortage of adventure and ingenuity in Reed’s unique lifestyle and music career.
Returning to his home by the sea, Reed KD put his life to music using one good mic, a couple borrowed and his laptop in his northern California bedroom. ‘In Case The Comet Comes,’ out June 9, is 11 original songs recorded by and featuring Reed plucking, strumming, sliding, drumming and singing (with friends and family contributing bass, drums, trashcans, fiddle and bass trombone).
Blending intimate neo-folk (“Winding Roads”), slow-burning twang (“Lake Missouri”) and rowdy bluegrass (“Cactus Garden”) ‘In Case the Comet Comes’ bridges Americana and rock, guided by his crisp, effortless voice.
