The best kept secret in music


"Editors Pick, Jan. 20, 2004"

Reed Dickinson picks up where he left off with "Playing Games With the Sun." Somehow and I don’t know how, he’s able to actually write BETTER songs! Utilizing drum loops as well as a hodge-podge of instruments like the fiddle, mandolin, steel drums, trumpet, violin, cello, along with your standard three-piece. The title-track is a standout on an album of standouts—I mean that hook is so good it’s sick. He improved his singing ten-fold, which on his last album might have been his only, and I mean only, downfall. So now that he’s armed to conquer the airwaves, are you ready to surrender?

Feeling a bit camera shy


Reed Dickinson is a Boston, MA area native who’s been recording his own music since 1996. He recorded the retro rock CD Playing Games With The Sun and released it in August 2001 to critical acclaim. “The sweet melodies and superb lyrics Reed Dickinson displays in this album baffled me. Reed Dickinson obviously has heaps of talent as a songwriter and is a very capable singer as well. Playing Games with the Sun is a wonderful surprise and is definitely worth a listen. Reed Dickinson could be something special in the very near future.” MODERNROCK.COM. This CD has been compared by music publications to the Beatles more than to any other band or recording artist.

Reed has just released his new CD called Ruby. It’s a rock CD but with an eclectic mixture of other types of music interspersed throughout the CD. It might just sound like the Beatles would have sounded had they been together today. The surprises abound.

Ruby was engineered and produced by Paul Caruso at Bay Farm Sound Studio, MA. Paul is well known for his work with the band Aerosmith. Paul also lends a hand with drums and percussion. Other members of the Playing Games With The Sun sessions including guitarist Dana West, keyboard player Janet Hood and bass player Danny Mo contribute to many of the songs on Ruby. The members of this core band are famous for being outstanding Massachusetts musicians.
Ruby is an exciting CD. It is quite different musically from Playing Games but as always, the music is very melodic with lots of cool harmonies and Reed’s character portrayals and lyrical messages are still prevalent.
