Reed Four is an original 90's inspired experimental indie-rock band with hints of blues, folk, and shoegaze. Founded amongst friendships and random degrees of separation, they form an amalgamation of complimentary genres that spawned their sound and style. Those familiar with the sounds of Pixies, Radiohead, Florence + The Machine, and Alabama Shakes should feel right at home with Reed Four.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist, Andria Reed, a veteran in the local music scene of Evansville, Indiana, had already written and recorded her first acoustic album titled "Bedford to Bellemeade" within a year before the formation of Reed Four. Her goal was to turn the album into a much bigger sound. She had a mutual musical admiration for colleague/guitarist, Joe Vowels, and they began collaboration on the concept. The two instantly bonded and began forming the roots of what would become Reed Four's first album. Matthew Hyneman (drummer) and Josh Case (multi-instrumentalist), already familiar with Andria's work, soon joined the two. Within a year, the group began rehearsing and self-recording Reed Four's version of "Bedford to Bellemeade."

Reed Four's version of "Bedford to Bellemeade" was self recorded at Joe's house every Sunday from March 2013 through December 2013. It was then passed on to Mike Boren where he spent the next 2 years carefully mixing and mastering it in his free time. The album art was conceptualized from passing around music video ideas and playing off of recurring imagery sang throughout the album. Aaron Tanner of Melodic Virtue then brought this concept to light by creating the surrealistic imagery that decorates the album's cover. The album is loaded with "emotionally-charged, indie rock melodramas"..."that confronted life's struggles head on." - Tommy Ellis, News4U Magazine

During the waiting period of the mastering process, in Andria's spare time she became interested in filming and video editing. This led to the band making their own music video trilogy that tells a summary of the album's story when played in chronological order. Andria filmed and directed each of these videos. On September 13th of 2016 the band released their self produced music video for their first single "Drive". They then successfully released their debut album "Bedford to Bellemeade" worldwide on September 24th 2016. Each member of the band had a small cameo in the second music video for "Old Piano" released on May 23rd of 2017. The final music video for "How I Feel for Me" was released on December 13th of 2017 marking the final project and closure for Bedford to Bellemeade.

"Bedford to Bellemeade" is available on many major music distribution services including iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Play, Spotify, and several others.

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair.
