Los Angeles band The Wild Reeds are known for their blend of folk and rock, bright melodies, and rich three-part harmonies. After starting out as a folk trio, the group added a rhythm section and introduced a more exuberant indie folk sound with their second album, 2014’s “Blind And Brave”. Their fourth full-length release “Cheers” marked their debut in the Top 40 of the independent albums chart.

Formed by Sharon Silva, Kinsey Lee, and Mackenzie Howe, all of whom share lead vocals The Wild Reeds eventually began playing with bassist Nick Phakpiseth and drummer Nick Jones, greatly expanding the scope of their songs on 2014’s lush “Blind and Brave”. The album would prove to be somewhat of a breakout for The Wild Reeds and their touring schedule reflected their growing success.

In 2016, they released the EP Best Wishes before signing with Nashville indie Dualtone Records. The Wild Reeds now a five-piece followed it with “Cheers” issued by Dualtone in March of 2019.

This year, well-known roots and folk label Dualtone Records is celebrating two decades on this planet. In celebration of their 20th anniversary, the label has put together a covers album with artists reimagining cuts from their label mates titled “Amerikinda: 20 Years of Dualtone“. The Wild Reeds’ take on Mt. Joy’s “Younger Days.”

The Wild Reeds added, “Dualtone creates a familial environment for the artists they work with. They’re hands on and make sure their artists feel attended to while pushing for their success. We have always been fans of the DT artist family. Some of them have taken us on tour, became our friends, confidants, collaborators, and teammates. We got to watch Mt. Joy rise in their successes and were honoured to play a couple shows together pre-pandemic. ‘Younger Days’ feels like the perfect choice for a future on-stage song-along when we meet again.
