Wadadli/Dan Reed / Press

“Wadadli aka: Dan Reed, aka: Sly Mongoose might be as pasty as any Anglo in the crowd but his past is of a different color. Raised from childhood in Antigua and the surrounding islands, After relocating to the US at the age of 16, he developed a taste for American music. His tastes ran the gambit as he indulged himself in everything from hard core to modern pop. This duplicity helped form the musician that he is today. Most of his work has been self produced and self promoted, yet his admirers are many and he is able to fill a decent sized room. Reed has an uncanny natural ability to create catchy melody. Pop, rock and world roots all are a part of his repertoire; but it was the reggae that stood out as his true calling. Reed's main instrument is his voice. He is able to growl out old school one drop style while inserting backgrounds that are high, soaring and sweet. Introspective is a key word illustrated in his subject matter that speaks often of love and understanding.”
