About

“Their melodies make their music exceptional” – Natalie Johnson (music editor for Sneak Preview)

“…intoxicating sound a light in the darkness of the song craft” – Josh Gross (album review in Rogue Valley Messenger)



Despite their brotherhood, Aaron and Phil Reed didn’t start playing music together until two years ago after Phil left their hometown of St. Charles, Missouri to join Aaron in the unsullied mountains of the American Northwest. The brothers family blend of folk encapsulates the grit and humor of Midwest life with the swagger and serenity of the west coast. Their style evokes finger picking folk singers of the 60’s and 70’s with a contemporary and boundless edge. Cultivated from years of performing in bands ranging from heavy metal to reggae and rock, to punk, country, and funk, their musical dichotomy is at the root of their diverse yet seamless folk-brand.

With their comedic brotherly banter, impeccable harmonic expression, and widely varying influences, a Brothers Reed performance will have you reflecting on lost lives and lovers, laughing hysterically and leaving completely entertained.

Touring as a guitar-duo, the group incorporates harmonica, percussion and keys into their live performances, soothing your soul with songs that are familiar yet original. Whether they are finger picking their way through a lamentable ballad or bringing you around full-speed with a barn-burning bluegrass number, The Brothers Reed are masters of their craft.

Winners of 2014’s “Road to Nashville,” competition as well as finalists and crowd favorites of Britt Festivals 2015 “Rising Stars Contest,” the Brothers Reed have quickly risen to regional renown and now tour extensively throughout the U.S. Their sophomore full length, Monster In My Head (released March 2016), is a power-punch follow up to 2015’s critically acclaimed debut, Sick As Folk. Moving away from the stripped down approach of Sick As Folk, Monster In My Head combines full band instrumentation with the finest elements of folk, rock, R&B, country and reggae, to create a record that at 17 tracks is an ambitious yet fluid piece of work. The album also marks the group’s first effort at collaboration and features several guest artists including Jeff Pevar (Crosby, Stills and Nash; Ray Charles; Jazz is Dead), T.J. Eilers (Synrgy, Buckle Rash, The Illies) and Ambur Rose (Roses and Whiskey).

All aspects of the brand including management, website design, graphics, and album production (engineering, recording and mixing) is done completely by The Brothers.
