Andrew Reed & The Liberation
“Don’t Say Goodbye”
About Andrew Reed
Andrew Reed: a recording and creative artist dubbed a “rock mystic” by the Indie press. He isolated himself from the music world and social media in his remote cabin for a year and created a unique sonic record by saturating analog tape running 3 times normal speed, capturing the performances at the moment of inspiration. Reed’s work is almost always introspective, but on his new release, he sings about relationships and the common worries of people with lyrics that express the extreme angst and inner turmoil of growing up and trying to understand the world. Reed plays all the instruments except for drums, which were performed by Wayne Redden. As an evolution of his isolation, he transformed into Andrew Reed & The Liberation
Reed sees “the Liberation” as a personal event of complete self-actualization and self-acceptance. Live, Reed “goes wild” with reckless physical disregard, often trashing guitars against cymbals and mic stands. “To me, rock wasn’t meant to be pretty but desperate, risky, and bombastic where it could go off the rails at any moment, not over-rehearsed or efficient and safe. Where one could throw their life away in the moment.” His last record “Twisted World”, climbed to #20 on the Billboard AC Indicator Chart. The latest single is Don’t Say Goodbye, a song about a near-death experience Reed had when swept overboard in the Gulf of Alaska.
“Can I live as a bird of the air or lily of the field? Can I rise above these Earthly cares?” After more than a year of isolation in his cabin, away from the music business and social media, observing nature an album emerged. Reed is an ultra-creative guitarist and recording artist, who is so far out, that he is known as the Outlier.
Through a “vision,” Reed saw and built a 3-level, state-of-the-art, remote mountaintop recording compound, surrounded by 12,000 acres of game lands, where artists could reside and become absorbed in their projects. Reed’s consciousness and work have put him in the company of some of the world’s leading scientists and researchers, whereby proprietary synapse-altering technologies were developed to send artists “beyond themselves” – perhaps to make Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Zappa, and Beatles-type recordings. Reed is deviant flirting with enlightenment, and our world needs these sensitive and delicate souls. Through As a Bird of the Air, this wild deviant shows what can be produced sonically, a unique record of songs that radio will love and that will lift people.
