“I swear this lil’ lady jumped right outta a time machine. Girl's gotta #hippiesoul!" That Tweet by a fan after a recent Reed Ferguson show at an Atlanta venue says it all. If Classic Rock is looking for a revival, 19 year old singer/songwriter Reed Ferguson might just be it’s savior. A fusion of various influences, from Elmore James to Led Zeppelin drives her authentic and distinctive songwriting Rock sound, a style NPR's John Lorinc recently described it as "Neo" Classic Rock. Reed's latest release, an original 5 song EP entitled Magic Eye, is evidence of this emerging genre. As one Atlanta newspaper recently wrote, "While Classic Rock lovers will delight in the covers sprinkled through her set list, it's Reed's original tunes that are sure to bring new rockers to the fold.”
Magic Eye is now available on iTunes!

A note from Reed:
Here are a few fun facts about me…
My influences include Crosby Stills Nash & Young (Neil Young is my favorite, but who doesn’t feel that same way?), Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, Eric Clapton, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Grateful Dead, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and the Band. (Epic guitarists define my soul.)
I mostly like the 1960s and early 70s rock-era stuff, but I like some more modern-ish bands too. St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Grace Potter, Radiohead, John Mayer, Gary Clark Jr., Tedeschi Trucks Band (Never have I been more obsessed with a band), etc.
Most of the music I write either has a rock, blues, or folk feel to it.
I'm a nerd and am obsessed with Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter, and Star Wars.
And lastly, I really really REALLY love chocolate.
