The Wild Reeds
The Wild Reeds are a band led by women, and that matters. Not a sister band, not a girl group, but a band fronted by three women, all talented singers, songwriters, and multi-instrumentalists in their own right: Kinsey Lee, Mackenzie Howe, and Sharon Silva, with drummer Nick Jones and bass player Nick Phakpiseth providing the Los Angeles-based band’s rhythmic foundation. Like a harmony at its euphoric best, the leads’ powerful – and powerfully distinct – voices merge to form a sound that can only be The Wild Reeds. On their third LP, Cheers, the band comes together to create an ode to the joys and pains of camaraderie.
“Pretty Little Broken Thing is a punk rock love story about two people living on the edge, teetering towards a very dangerous life, who for better or worse, realize their only hope is to rely on one another in order to survive their tango through a world of sin and depravity,” says Jonny Fox (vocals/guitar). Produced by Neil Sanderson, from Three Days Grace, and mixed by two-time GRAMMY Award-winner, Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Papa Roach, Daughtry), Pretty Little Broken Thing blends immediately accessible choruses with magnetic layers of depth revealed in repeated listens.
