Dan Reeder

Dan Reeder was born in Louisiana in 1954, the son of a minister, but grew up in Southern California. He attended Santa Ana College and later studied art at Cal State Fullerton, where he met his German-born wife. The couple relocated to Germany, where Reeder currently makes his living as a painter. Also a musician, Reeder began making his own instruments, using them to write and record his own songs on a recording rig he also built himself. A cassette tape of Reeder's work made it into John Prine's hands and was released on Prine's Oh Boy label in 2003. The album, simply called Dan Reeder, received a good deal of critical acclaim for its unique, homemade blend of blues, folk, gospel, and field hollers, and for its decidedly D.I.Y. approach, which, given the fact that he built every instrument he played on the album, Reeder has taken to its furthest extreme. Reeder has stated that he is a painter who plays music because "there are some things you can't paint." A second album on Oh Boy, Sweetheart, appeared in 2006. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

Loved Dan since a friend who owned a CD store (think how long ago that was!) recommended that first album to me. And BSWorkSpot, you are so right! His version of WSOP is a wonderful interpretati o n of the song. :-)

There's a review of the Dan Reeder album on Amazon by a former neighbor who had had no idea the guy was playing music. Worth a quick read.

Dan Reeder: Louisiana born, SOCAL raised, an extremely soul filled musician and painter with more genius than damn near any artist today. Not to mention, he's fluent in German, builds speakers, guitars, sitars, computers, speakers, and amplifiers. If you think his music is great his art is incredible.

When it said he was a painter, I thought they meant as a house painter not an artist.

A truly creative human being. I love the irreverence of his songs and the purity of his homespun delivery. Thanks for your music Dan, and thanks John for getting it to us. BTW: you have been one of my favorite song writers for more years than I care to think about.

If he is reading this, I have a house concert series starting in April with John Flynn near New Paltz, NY. If ever needing such a gig, here, contact me at gunkshouseco n c e r t s @ m y s p a c e . c o m to see if we can work something out. Artist gets 20 tickets of gate, 5 to house owner (not me).

Wow. Radical simplicity. You can tell that this guy with his unique voice is also a visual artist. What a breath of fresh air.
He's one of the few males that I allow on my Be Good Tanyas station.

I listen thinking that it's missing something and then I realize that whats missing is all of the crap added in to make a "good" record by most artist. Bare bones at its best.
