Paris, Ontario pseudo-rockers Bad Reed channel a multitude of popular influences into unique snapshots of passion. Small-town art-pop going big places…
The quartet released their first professional studio EP mid-2015 online for free and are now touring south east Canada supporting this new music release. The group’s second release is slated to hit the market in early 2017.
“Their self-titled EP is just three songs long but provides vivid glimpses into their sound, which has a strong melodic drive and an equally forceful punch of power guitar lines.” -Chris Kompanek, The Huffington Post, January 27, 2016
Bad Reed is Costa Chatzis on percussion, Austin Sharpe on bass, Sydney Sollazzo on vocals and keyboards, and Graham Walker on guitars. Hailing from small towns and diverse backgrounds, this group consists of members with varying music tastes. Their sounds are likened to acts from Hozier andJack White to Snarky Puppy, The Mars Volta and Amy Winehouse.
Bad Reed is engaging and danceable. Overcoming the odds and getting even. Bad Reed is coming for you… Expect to hear them on more radio stations, to see them touring farther, and hitting harder for years to come.
