Formed in 2010 by Sharon Silva, Kinsey Lee, and Mackenzie Howe, the Wild Reeds are a Los Angeles-based indie band who blend together rich three-part harmonies, indie folk, and rock.
Following a pair of self-produced folk-oriented releases, the trio began playing with bassist Nick Phakpiseth and drummer Nick Jones, greatly expanding the scope of their songs on 2014's lush Blind and Brave. The Raymond Richards-produced album would prove to be somewhat of a breakout for the Wild Reeds, and their touring schedule reflected their growing success as they supported acts like Langhorne Slim
, Noah Gundersen
, and Della Mae
. In 2016 they signed a deal with well-known Nashville indie Dualtone Records
and worked with producer Peter Katis (the National
, the Swell Season
) to record their label debut, The World We Built, which arrived in early 2017. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
