CROSS-POLLINATION CXCIV - TUES JUN 3RD - 7:30-10 PM
REED KD
BEARDS

PLAYGIRL MAGAZINE:
"Take Sujan Stevens, but discard the religious shell and full orchestra. Add a Simon, a Garfunkel, some Joshua Radin, and a harmonica for flavor. Now let it simmer in your mind for a minute, and if all goes well, it should come out like Reed KD... His indie spirit floats through his songs, the sound of which can transport you onto a cross-country Greyhound, staring out the window at miles of cornfields, or to a rainy Sunday afternoon spent beneath a cozy blanket."

ABSOLUTEPUNK.NET:
"...If you like your music soft, thoughtful, and poetic, or simply are in the market for a nice break from the recycled music that often laces the three medias, I would suggest that you give The Ashes Bloom by Reed KD a few listens. With all features considered, Reed KD is one of the better bands you might not know of."

Music Emissions:
"...an angelic sweetness reminiscent of Paul Simon..."

Fiercely loyal folk duo seeks audience for sad musics made by drunken buffoons. Audience must have taste for mangled catch phrases and biopics. Audience should appreciate the musical manifestation of fictitiously sad characters in place of the actual feelings of band members at times. Audience should realize that duo is just trying to put this thing right somehow-- to string the morose missives of malconents together by using their bandaged, split-torn skin and grafted-on understanding. Audience should neither pay any homages nor assume anyone is asking them to. Audience is encouraged to "keep it real" at all times, even maddeningly so. Audience should know that duo, at any given time, is at the end of their collective ropes, although they love you, and they do, they do, they do, they most certainly do.
