A PDX native, Reed has been an active member of the local music scene since 2007. As a child, Reed showed an early appreciation for music after his family surrounded him with choral music and folk guitar. After exploring various instruments, Reed picked up a guitar at the age of 15 and the rest was history. Ever since, Reed has been devoted to honing his craft as a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and recording engineer. Reed completed the professional music program at Portland Community College in 2009 and continues to etch his place in the #PDXmusic scene with his original rock project Louder Oceans.
