Nashville-based, Virginia Native, Will Thomas Reed has been cutting his teeth in the music industry since the age of 13. Being a lover of all music, Will left East Tennessee State (on a Bluegrass Scholarship) to spend several years touring full-time with the Grammy Award Winning Rock Band 12 Stones; when they disbanded, Will moved on as Lead Guitarist for the popular rock group Throwing Gravity before fronting his own project, the Will Thomas Band and hitting the road with a multitude of major label acts.
Burned-out, frustrated, and pulling further away from his Country roots, Will took a much needed break from the industry, to write, record and develop his own unique brand and musical sound – which blends Country Music with Americana and Classic American Rock-And-Roll, in a very modern way.
The new E.P. To Whom It May Concern…, set to release globally on June 1, 2018, was recorded and produced in Nashville at The Cat Room and Brown Owl Studios with Brian Craddock (Daughtry) and mixed by Matt Ross-Spang (Elvis Presley, Margo Price, Jason Isbell), at the famed Sam Phillips Recording in Memphis, and mastered by Brad Blackwood (Alison Krauss and Union Station, Sara Bareilles, Black Eyed Peas) at Euphonic Masters, is a brilliant blend of fun and emotional life-stories, but also showcases great songwriting and a wide array of dynamic musical influence.
“As a child, I can remember listening to George Jones on vinyl and thinking about how honest his voice and lyrics were; He told stories that would make you fall in love, break your heart, make you laugh or cry; such conviction in every song.” –Will Thomas Reed
