Little King of Dreams
By: DennisRoger Reed
Years in the making, with a cast of thousands, finally released. "Little
King of Dreams" is 15 originals by Dennis Roger Reed, noted singer and
songwriter in an acoustic folk rock mode. The cream of the crop of Orange County folk and
bluegrass musicians (the Andy Rau Band, Paul Shelasky, Janet Beazley, Don Reed
and many more) help make this a very special project.
Reed spent five years and recorded two albums as the bass player,
songwriter and high harmony vocalist for the Andy Rau Band. He's had songs published and recorded in the Nashville, bluegrass and
blues markets, and also currently performs and records as a member of the roots/rock/blues
band Blue Mama.
"Little King of Dreams" is an acoustic production that
features elements of country, folk, bluegrass, swing, rock and blues.

What folks are saying about Little King of Dreams.... . .
" Singer-songwriter Dennis Roger Reed has a scratchy but
tuneful tone that can recall folk-rocker Peter Case's more subdued moods, or
parallel the broken, reedy sound of Jerry Garcia. The best songs offer lovely
melodies and uncommonly intimate expressions of hurt." ~ Mike Boehm, Los Angeles
"This is a very fine recording. The music has a
relaxed yet lively feel,
backed with the pure clean sound of American stringed instruments.
songwritng has an immediate appeal, inventive and catchy, its message
and plain-spoken. It's California with a Nebraska sensitivity.
I'm always on the lookout for new music--on the show I play bluegrass,
newgrass, new acoustic music, a little acoustic swing, some old-time
and anything else that might happen along. It's refreshing to find an
whose sound fits the show and yet sounds different from everything else
"Dennis Roger Reed writes mature, intelligent folk songs and
is quite skilled in their performance." ~ Jim Morman, Dirty Linen.
"Dennis Reed is a singer with an ironic delivery that is
occasionally reminiscent of the late Steve Goodman." ~ Jon Hartley Fox,
" Dennis Roger Reed" has an earthy quality to his voice
that helps "Rain on the Rails" blend into the bluegrass format .~.LR,
