A Double Dose of the Wild Reeds in New York City This Week

May 1st, 2017

Individually they’re known as Kinsey Lee, Mackenzie Howe and Sharon Silva, but collectively the three are known as the Wild Reeds (above, performing “Patience” for KRCC FM), the L.A. band deftly mixing straight-up rock, ethereal folk and twangy country, all beneath three distinct voices joined in harmony. Their second full-length, The World We Built (stream it below), came out last month. NPR Music compares the trio to Crosby, Stills & Nash, adding that the album “is underpinned by brash guitar textures, harmonium and a killer rhythm section. The Wild Reeds grasp the wonder of song.” In New York City this week, they play tomorrow at Rough Trade NYC and on Wednesday at Mercury Lounge. Nashville, Tenn., rock five-piece Blank Range open both shows.
