Started 2018 at The NAMM Show once again, playing for my sponsor Journey Instruments and demoing their awesome slate of new ukuleles. Got to jam a little with bass legend, Jennifer Leitham in the Ohana booth and loved simply being surrounded by so much music and talent! There is nothing quite like the NAMM Show experience.

Looking forward to another awesome year of musical adventures! In the meantime, take a look at Journey Instruments’ new sitka spruce soprano – so sweet! You can check out my demo here.

I am truly honored by the love and support of all my LA fans and new fans I continue to meet and connect with.

You guys rock!  ~xo

Reviews, etc.

“A track like Stuck on You is the perfect example of what Reed is going for with [True North]. Simple strings provide the background for a nice upbeat romantic song. It’s the kind of the thing tailor made for a TV commercial or something similar. This is Reed’s versatility; she can do upbeat or she can do Starry, Starry Night, a beautifully articulated acoustic piece that eases me to peace like few tracks I’ve heard in many years. Again her sense of melody is superb and it shows on several of the tracks on this admirably assembled album.” More »

~ Ear To The Ground Music

“Of particular note amongst her many musical skills is Reed’s voice, which effortlessly conveys passion and soul at one turn, wry humor at another and bright optimism with equal grace.” More »

~ Music Emissions

“We need Karen Reed; she is a true example that following your dream and doing what you love can be an inspiration to many.”

~ Ellenwood-EP
