Lafayette, Louisiana musician Renée Reed has released her debut album of lo-fi dream-folk from the Cajun prairies. Gorilla vs. Bear describes it as “an effortless, inspired union of the haunting folk music that Reed was raised on and a lilting, lost ’60s French-pop gem.” 

“I Saw A Ghost” by Renée Reed Video created by Emily Curran and Joseph Howard From her self-titled record coming March 26th, 2021 via Keeled Scales. Renée Reed grew up on the accordion-bending knee of her band-leading grandfather Harry Trahan; in the middle of countless jam sessions at the one-stop Cajun shop owned by her parents Lisa Trahan and Mitch Reed.

Soaked in the storytelling of her great uncle, folklorist Revon Reed and his infamous brothers from Mamou; and surrounded by a litany of Cajun and Creole music legends, both backstage at the many festivals of Southwest Louisiana and on the porch of her family home. And while Renée’s music is certainly informed by these deep roots, her dark dreamlike folk has more in common with contemporaries like Cate Le Bon and Jessica Pratt. It’s also not unlike the intangible magic contained in Mazzy Star’s songs.
