"What are you willing to throw your life away on?" A serious question... Andrew tries to be as helpful as he knows...and has unconditional love for all expressions of Life...a guy that wild animals, even deer, astonishingly, will come up to as they sense the compassion...

Good Karma! https://open.spotify.com/artist/1gLnI... https://andrewreedmusic.com/ US: Dubbed a “rock mystic” by the Indie press, recording/guitar creative Andrew Reed uncages As a Bird of the Air…, another concept album with a completely different SOUND and retro style than the successful 2018 album, If All the World Were Right, which yielded 2 Billboard Top 40 Indicator charting singles (If All the World Were Right #31, Cure My Mind #35). Rather than follow this success up with relentless touring, promotion and an album stamped out of the same mold, Reed “followed the wind” and put away his acoustic and dug into playing his old Strat and Les Paul Custom that he tortured for years on the road. He isolated himself from the music world and social media in his remote cabin for a year and created a unique sonic record by saturating analog tape running 3 times normal speed, capturing the performances at the moment of inspiration. The result is a spectacular rock album that sounds like “modern 80s" at its best with high-energy rockers and soaring power ballads. Reed’s work is almost always introspective, but on this album, he sings about relationships and the common worries of people with lyric that express the extreme angst and inner turmoil of growing up and trying understand the world. Reed plays all the instruments except for drums, which were performed by Wayne Redden. As an evolution of his isolation, he transformed into Andrew Reed & the Liberation… Reed sees “the Liberation” as a personal event of complete self-actualization and self-acceptance. Live, Reed “goes wild” with reckless physical disregard, often trashing guitars against cymbals and mike stands. “To me, rock wasn’t meant to be pretty...but desperate, risky and bombastic…where it could go off the rails at any moment…not over-rehearsed or efficient and safe…where one could throw their life away in the moment…”
