Over the past year The Wild Reeds have transformed from a three part harmony driven band to a full indie folk rock force that has been sweeping the West Coast. In 2013 they toured California multiple times playing festivals such as Make Music Pasadena, Echo Park Rising, Claremont Folk Festival, Lightning in a Bottle, and successfully captured large audiences every Monday night in December with their Holiday Residency at The Satellite.
On August 9 the band will be releasing their formal debut album, Blind and Brave, which was produced by Raymond Richards at Red Rockets Glare (Parson Redheads, Honey Honey, Local Natives, Dustbowl Revival). The album release will kick off during a very special show at the historic Troubadour.

With their debut album to be released this August and a bright future ahead, we can only expect great things from The Wild Reeds this year. They will be joining Newport Folk Festival’s sister of the west, Way Over Yonder in September with artists such as Jackson Brown, Local Natives, Lucinda Williams, and speak of plans to tour the West this fall.
