A regular on CBC’s Vinyl Cafe, and winner of the grand prize for folk in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, Reid can often be found performing with his songwriting partner (and wife) Carolyn Mill. This creative couple just wrote their way into the Vancouver Folk Music Fest by winning 1st prize in the Pickin' a Folk Star Contest and continue to create music that matters by regularly releasing songs on topical subjects from politics to everlasting love.

A male kd Lang, a poor man’s Michael Buble, or Roy Orbison’s long lost son; the comparison’s continue to come in but Reid remains uniquely himself.. A gifted interpreter of classic and cult tunes, Reid is also a inspired songwriter whose latest CD of all original music Staring Contest features guests Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas), and Anne Lindsay (Blue Rodeo). Well known for his compelling covers and impressive guitar style, Reid's latest present to his fans is a winter-themed album Songs For A Winter's Night - an unusual holiday collection including Nick Lowe, Gordon Lightfoot, and more.

“I've heard Reid a number of times and have yet to hear a bad song or bad performance. I cannot say that about too many performers.” - Mike Hill, Artistic Director, Mariposa Folk Festival

"After Reid appeared on the Vinyl Cafe we received tremendous feedback from our audience. He stole the show...He blew me away." Stuart McLean - CBC Vinyl Cafe

"Achingly beautiful songs.... a haunting quality not soon forgotten" - Globe & Mail

"Prepare to be surprised" - Vancouver Province

"He’s become a favourite in the Canadian heartland. But, a record as good as ‘Staring Contest’ shouldn’t be held back by radio frequencies, regional borders or time zones. Its simple songs are endearing and unforgettable and should expand his audience to a size that reflects his undeniable talent. - Doug Heselgrave NoDepression
