Grace plants seeds of talent in every generation. But what becomes of it can’t be known until the lucky ones make their choices about how to use it. Down the road, those choices become their story, for better or for worse. Reed Föehl began discovering the seeds of his own talent as a young teenager, playing on the streets of Boston, beneath the grasshopper weather vane at Faneuil Hall.
He was encouraged by his parents and their own love of music. “I grew up listening to my family playing country music and traditional songs every Thursday night. My dad introduced me to many of the artists that still move me today. Folks like John Prine and Steve Goodman,” Reed recalls.
The first choice that would help define Reed as a young man and artist presented itself on one of those Thursdays. “Billy Conway, who played drums in my parents’ band, and the rock band Morphine, took me aside one night and asked me when I was going to start writing my own songs. I thought that was a pretty good question.” So Reed got to work, and in his late teens, he emerged as not only a talented performer, but a great songwriter, too.
Reed is in production with Immersive's Steven Vidaic for a full length album, to be released Spring of 2017.
