At nine years old, Laura Reed saw her first poem published in print, and at fourteen, she picked up her first guitar. It was clear what Reed was meant to do with the rest of her life. She took her singular blend of rock, blues, and funk on the road with her band, Deep Pocket, and went on to collaborate with icons like George Clinton, Killer Mike and Jewel, sing the national anthem at Madison Square Garden twice, and share bills with the likes of Mali Music among others.
When Deep Pocket broke up, Reed poured her heart and soul into what would become her solo debut The Awakening, reinventing herself with the help of GRAMMY-winning producer Shannon Sanders. Laura continued to hone her skills as a songwriter for several years with EMI and SONY ATV and Blue Rose Music, leaving to go independent in 2020. She has since had success in sync placements in many TV-series. Laura recently teamed up with Widespread Panic's Dave Schools (bass/production) and Grammy Award-winning Vance Powell, known for his work with Jack White and countless other icons. She released the first single from the new project, 'Milk & Honey', in 2019. In February 2020, she formed a new collab with Estonian guitarist Laur Joamets, which released their debut album in 2021 to critical acclaim. Laura is currently in the process of releasing a series of singles in 2023, produced and co-written with Shannon Sanders.
