Kicked it off 2017 at The NAMM Show, playing for 3 sponsors this year – IMUA Ukulele, Journey Instruments and Hosco, Inc. Got to meet Honoka & Azita in the lobby and jam with bass legend, Jennifer Leitham in the Ohana booth, plus play around with all kinds of amazing instruments, like the 3-string electric Loog below.

Journey Instruments sent me one of their new mahogany tenor ukes to test and review. You can check out the 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

    Just got a new uke to demo and it's so fun to play I haven't been able to put it down! Impressively big sound in a little package. Journey Instruments  has pulled out all the stops on this one. Thin body, arch back design with a sitka spruce sound board and meranti mahogany back and sides. Stylish rosewood cutaway for easy action in the high frets. Not only that, this soprano uke comes with a passive pickup (yes!) and Journey's own padded and pocketed ballistic nylon travel case. I think we'll be spending a lot of time together... :) #itsthatgood #playjourney #awesomeukes #guitarstoo #eattravelplay

Reviews, etc.

“A track like Stuck on You is the perfect example of what Reed is going for with this album. 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.”
