MAGIC EYE IS FINALLY HERE! ON ITUNES!
Watch Reed on WXIA TV's Atlanta and Company
If Classic Rock is looking for a revival, it just might find its savior in 19 year old Reed Ferguson from Atlanta, Georgia. A fusion of various influences, everywhere from Elmore James to Led Zeppelin, puts Reed decidedly in a space all her own. Her latest CD, an original 5 song EP entitled Magic Eye, is evidence of this emerging--or you could say, re-emerging--genre. It would be a mistake to enter into Reed’s world with expectations, because she is anything but predictable. Her instrumentation, melodies, vocals and lyrics defy categorization. It's no wonder notables in the industry are saying Reed’s writing style is on the path to being “prolific,” and perhaps this is what her songwriting idols Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez and Robert Plant looked like at 19.
A note from Reed:
If I had to sum up my entire soul in one sentence, I’d say that I’m 1/2 Dewey Finn and 1/2 Penny Lane. If you get those references, I love you already.
Here are a few fun facts about me…
My influences include Crosby Stills Nash & Young (Neil Young is my favorite, but who doesn’t feel that same way?), Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, Eric Clapton, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Grateful Dead, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and the Band. (Epic guitarists define my soul.)
I mostly like the 1960s and early 70s rock-era stuff, but I like some more modern-ish bands too. St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Grace Potter, Radiohead, John Mayer, Gary Clark Jr., Tedeschi Trucks Band (Never have I been more obsessed with a band), etc.
Most of the music I write either has a rock, blues, or folk feel to it.
I only ever wear t-shirts of my favorite bands.
I'm probably listening to music 90% of my life.
I'm a nerd and am obsessed with Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, and Star Wars.
And lastly, I really really REALLY love chocolate.
