Reed Ferguson

Reed FergusonShe's been called "Taylor Swift X 3," and it's no wonder. When it comes to speaking her mind, there's no beating around the bush with Reed Ferguson. No, Reed takes to her guitar and clever lyrics to lay you out on the mat, sweetly and unassumingly. From other singers/songwriters these tunes might seem a bit jaded, but coming from shy 16-year-old Reed, it feels like a softly swung sucker punch that leaves you flat out IN LOVE, not only with her music but with the quiet strength that IS Reed.
