Born into a musical family, Reed grew up in a small country town in New England, listening to his parent's bluegrass band rehearse in the living room every Thursday night for all of his childhood. From there Reed took to the streets at the early age of 11 performing at Boston's own Fanuel hall marketplace. He then became the frontman for the band Acoustic Junction which toured for ten years nationwide and eventually signed with Capricorn/Mercury records. In 2001 he began his solo career with the release of “Spark” which put him on the map in the publishing world, garnering placements in both film and television. His 4th solo album, "Lost In The West" was released in 2014, which led him to tour with Gregory Alan Isakov, Todd Snider and Anais Mitchell, to name a few. Recently nominated for a grammy for his song “fly” which was covered by the country legend “Lee Ann Womack”. Dusty and patient his music is genuine Americana, telling stories of the human condition with lyric and a voice that push the boundaries while paying homage to tradition. 2018 is shaping up to be a big year for Reed as he plans to record his 5th solo record in Nashville, TN. Stay tuned.
“Reed has the ability to transport the soul, a true master. One of the great songwriters of our time." - Gregory Alan Isakov
"I like to listen to my friend Reed Foehl in the mornings, the poems are subtle and the melodies are more like I wish mine were." - Todd Snider
“Reed's songs hit you in the heart, and everything else falls away" - Anais Mitchell
Kid Reverie is a new project out of Denver featuring the voice and writing of Steve Varney, guitarist for Gregory Alan Isakov and former leader of the Denver band Glowing House. Varney put together a quartet at the beginning of 2016 and began writing furiously. Based in a sound somewhere between Feist and The Black Keys, the songs are about loss, important conversations, love, war, the media, but the lyrics don't give everything away at once. While the words may often be somber, the music is designed to leave you feeling optimistic about whatever the topic. Sounds like rock, reads like folk, and it can make you dance.
