CD Review: Connecticut's Mick Reed Brings Us The Sounds From "Texas"

From Connecticut comes singer/songwriter Mick Reed with a new album entitled “Goodnight Texas.” His singing and music is a sweet mix of country and Americana, while his folk-fueled lyrics paint a picture in your mind as you listen to his words.

The new album begins with the slow jaunt of “Just One Step,” a great, two-minute introduction that gives you just a little taste of Reed’s talents. Reed and his band heat up for the quick-steppin’ song “The Singapore Sling.” His songwriting talents all come together for the unforgettable “Honey Bee,” then Reed goes honky-tonk on “That Old Brass Ring.” Reed’s beautiful lullaby “Tullia” leads us into the story of “Clawtown” before finishing with a jazzed-up duet with Madeleine Peyroux on “A Fool At The Other.”

Mick Reed and his band are performing Monday, February 27 in New York before heading to Massachusetts for a couple of shows. Check out Mick Reed’s website (mickreed.com) for more information on this rising musician.
