"What began as an obsession with Mississippi Hill Country blues has become a burgeoning blues orchestra at the vanguard of a new American roots music. Raised in the Swannanoa valley of Western North Carolina, multi-instrumentalist Reed Turchi is a producer, label head, band leader and solo artist. He's also a master of guitar driven blues that shapeshift seamlessly between acoustic slide, electric juke joint boogie, and the improvisational, groove-driven, massive sound of his Nashville based Kudzu Orkestra. His latest albums Tallahatchie, and Live At Soulshine evince his ability to play elemental blues solo, and to lead entire improvisational orchestras on the very same theme.
He's been lauded by Greg Vandy of KEXP as 'a familiar reality in this time of cultural and political uncertainty' and praised by American Standard Time as 'The sound of a new American music.' Reed has been featured in Rolling Stone, American Songwriter, Oxford American, and Fretboard Journal."
