Steeped in the folk tradition, Reed Foehl is largely known for his lyrical ability as an artist. He possesses a talent, and voice that is very seldom seen or heard. Foehls landscape of lush tones and solid songs touch upon the raw truth of love and tragedy, without sinking into saccharin sentimentally or cold remove. His albums pull together a touch of country, folk, and edgy roots rock with the bold honesty intrinsic to modern songwriting.

Since then Reed Foehl has released 4 solo albums: Once An Ocean 2009, Stoned Beautiful 2007, Spark 2004, and Leo’s Song 1995, a compilation of Reeds earliest solo works.
