Origin: United States
Eli "Paperboy" Reed went to the right school. The son of music critic, he cut his teeth in Northwest Mississippi, the cradle of the blues. Accompanied by legendary drummer Sam Carr, Reed worked the juke joints of the Delta before soul singer Mitty Collier invited him to be the Minister of Music with her gospel orchestra on the South Side of Chicago. In 2004, the singer returned to Massachusetts and released a first successful album of covers. Now seconded by seven musicians, the True Loves, Reed delivers a dynamic mix of soul and R&B that's up there with Amy Winehouse, Duffy and Adele.
