About the Artist
“More poetic and more emotional than practically any other act playing right now. In a period of pop stars devoid of any emotion, the soulful lyrics of Waddle shine through as a bright spot on a barren plain. By all means, check out Reed Waddle as he and his band plays through the United States in support of his new release .” James McQuiston- Neufutr Magazine
If you look up the word “troubadour,” Google doesn’t give you a whole lot. There is a reference to medieval times and, of course, traveling, wandering musicians. But if you want a perfect example of a “modern day troubadour”, you need to look no further than the life and times of the 2012 grand prize winner of the Telluride Troubadour Contest, singer- songwriter Reed Waddle.
During a recent concert appearance, Waddle said: “My life is like a gypsy trucker, traveling wherever my music takes me, writing about what moves me — the people and places I encounter.” Turn back the clock to August 2009, when he decided it was time for a great change. He moved from the “safety” of his hometown on the beaches of the Florida Gulf coast to the north Atlantic shores of Boston in search of a new beginning and a musical breakthrough. Within months he was named the grand prize-winner in the New York Songwriters Circle competition and was also a winner in The Mountain Stage New Song Competition in West Virginia. During this period of great change, growth and struggle, songs poured out of him that would become the basis for his most recent release, Creatures of the Heart.
