I Need Her Love
Dropping out of the Race
As a Bird of the Air...
US: Dubbed a “rock mystic” by the Indie press, recording/guitar creative Andrew Reed uncages As a Bird of the Air…, another concept album with a completely different SOUND and retro style than the successful 2018 album, If All the World Were Right, which yielded 2 Billboard Top 40 Indicator charting singles (If All the World Were Right #31, Cure My Mind #35).
Reed isolated himself from the music world and social media in his remote cabin for a year and created a unique sonic record by saturating analog tape running 3x normal speed, capturing the performances at the moment of inspiration. The result is a spectacular rock album that sounds like nothing before . Reed’s work is almost always introspective, but on this album, he sings about relationships and the common worries of people with lyric that express the extreme angst and inner turmoil of growing up and trying understand the world. Reed plays all the instruments except for drums, which were performed by Wayne Redden. As an evolution of his isolation, he transformed into Andrew Reed & the Liberation. Reed sees “the Liberation” as a personal event of complete self-actualization and self-acceptance. “To me, rock wasn’t meant to be pretty...but desperate, risky and bombastic…where it could go off the rails at any moment…not over-rehearsed or efficient and safe…where one could throw their life away…” To see a FAR OUT short-documentary, go to YouTube...as a bird of the air... From one that can't be bought or sold.
