David Reed & The Introverts

No.10, 10 Castle St., Gt. Barrington, MA

Won't be a Christmas carol within earshot, but you can still warm up with the BoIs and imbibe in some holiday cheer (over 100 kinds of whisky at the bar!) while you shake yer ol' bones to some Caribe-vibe folkrockin' reggae and cigar box blues!

Dry Ducks Recordings

 

Here it is!  Max Creek founder and cigar box guitar hero David Reed has released his long awaited fourth solo album “Gypsy Davy” on the Dry Duck Records label. Recorded and mixed by Luke Germain in his Stockbridge, MA studio and mastered by Ian Stewart in Housatonic, MA, David’s unique blend of folkrock, blues, country, and Caribe-vibe genres come together in an eclectic musical adventure that showcases his deft acoustic guitar picking, and of course, his own sensational, hand-made cigar box slide guitars.

 David’s inspired voice powers and growls its way through the blues, caresses the ballads, and his lively-up, West Indian patois in the reggae/calypso selections is always a delightful surprise. David’s vocals and cigar box playing on the title cut of “Gypsy Davy” are an exotic and energetic musical journey that fires the imagination.

 Spotlighting his own Band of Introverts (Sam Earnshaw, drums and Scott McKenney, bass), a number of distinguished guest artists join David on this vibrant and exceptional new album, including friends from Max Creek (Scott Murawski/lead guitar and Mark Mercier/keyboards) and a collection of several well-known Berkshire County musicians, including Eric Martin (violin/viola), Dave Vittone (accordion), Brendan Reed (djembe), Mark Tuomenoksa (saxophones), Claudia d’Alessandro & Lee Everett (backup vocals).

Gypsy Davy is available at CDBaby, live shows and on Amazon, Spotify, and most other online outlets.
