The Wild Reeds can be defined by one word: Harmony. The sound from this LA based band fronted by Kinsey Lee, Mackenzie Howe, and Sharon Silva dips in and out of multiple genres - some ethereal folk, some rock and roll rhythm and a hint of country twang (from Nick Jones and Nick Phakpiseth), but it all comes back to the root of this bands power: harmonies that create an instrument in and of itself.

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 pursuing their dreams.

The Wild Reeds spent most of 2016 on the road with stops at SXSW, Nelsonville Music Festival, Pickathon, Summerfest, Winnipeg Folk Festival and support and headline tours throughout the USA and Canada. In May, the band released a 3 song EP called Best Wishes that continues to display the growing and maturing artistry from the 3 unique songwriters. The EP was recorded by the band at NRG Studios in Los Angeles and was mixed by Doug Boehm (Girls, Dr Dog, Twin Peaks). The band are finishing 2016 in the studio working on their next album...

Blank Range formed in Nashville in 2012 and released their debut EP Phase II in 2013. The band was met with great acclaim early on in their career, with Rolling Stone stating “It's inventive rock & roll free of prefixes and imaginary Lou Reed-Mac Demarco punk band, packed with so many clever, catchy riffs and rip-rolling percussion." Consequence of Sound said, "No idea how they captured the whole Mitch Ryder vibe, but their soulful Detroit scruff is uncanny, adding a little more fuzz to the base than, say, Merge darlings Reigning Sound...I haven’t squeezed in a Big Star comparison yet, but the way Blank Range bounce off their scales is definitely akin to Alex Chilton’s best work. Band rules."

Recently, American Songwriter premiered the band's first official music video for their song "Circumstances."
