Reed KD is a singer from Santa Cruz, CA. It's quite obvious that he listened a lot acts like CSNY, the Byrds and Paul Simon. His album The Ashes Bloom is a nice folk record that tells you stories about the sea. Mellow music indeed, but with enough original arrangements to prevent you from nodding off. This album is not a home run, but it gets him to second base without any trouble. Give him some more training and he could be big in his niche.
