BLAKE REID

Lead Singer, Guitar, Writer

There is an inexplicable X-factor with Blake and it starts with his songwriting. Blake can so effectively bring a story to life with a few well chosen words and a simple melody that to hear his songs is to almost always be transported to another time and place in your life. This is Blake’s true gift and is a testament to Blake as a true workingman’s poet, taking guidance from some of the greats like Merle Haggard, Tom T. Hall and Kris Kristofferson. At the same time, Reid pays little attention to writing commercially formulaic hits. His songs are authentic and credible. They are a reflection of the only musical education he's ever had... playing music with his friends and family, learning to craft songs while sitting at the family’s kitchen table and listening to the radio in the trucks, tractors and combines he commandeered throughout his youth.
