South African-born, Carolina-raised, Music City based. Laura Reed is poised to make impact with her unique brand of Soul and Rock influenced Americana.

Reed relocated from Johannesburg to North Carolina while she was still just a child, but her family carried their culture and traditions (as well as their love of writing) with them wherever they went. At nine years old, Reed saw her first poem published in print, and at fourteen, she picked up her first guitar.

Open mics and cover sets led to original recordings and homemade CDs, and before she’d even finished high school, it was clear what Reed was meant to do with the rest of her life. George Clinton heard about Reed from band members who saw her performing on the streets of New Orleans and were so taken that they suggested he bring her into the studio, while Lee Oskar found the versatile musician on YouTube and invited her to be an ambassador for his ubiquitous harmonica brand.
Reed would go on to collaborate with everyone from Killer Mike and Robert Randolph to Karl Denson and Jewel, sing the national anthem at Madison Square Garden twice, and share bills with Dumpstaphunk, JJ grey & Mofro, India.Arie, Miguel, Valerie June and Anthony Hamilton among others.
