Feeling a bit camera shy


Ellis Reed formed in mid 2004. After some searching, scratching, nudging, and some downright scowling, the name "ellis reed" was chosen because we liked the sound of the name as well as having a mythical member to channel and occasionaly blame.
In 2005 we recorded our demo/CD which we called Still Life. Thanks to this CD, we were selected by Radio Volta's "Kinetic Cuts" show as one of their top picks of 2005 Since then, we have been fortunate to appear on Gene Shay's WXPN Folk Show as well as radio stations and webcasts too onerous to mention. We have also been fortunate to add festivals to our list of appearances. These festivals include the Bloomfield Harvest Festival, Collingswood Music Festival, The Fairmount Arts Crawl and the 1st Acoustic Philly Festival.

We like to connect our songs with the Audience and provide a range of sounds, moods, and genres in our show. Our music serves the songs and we find our instruments as well as vocals both dancing in counterpoint or blending together as the songwave rises and breaks.
