“She delivers her musings with a warm and kind voice, skilled musicianship, and genuine appreciation for the world around her.” - Parent’s Choice Foundation
Violinist, vocalist and storyteller Susan Reed has crafted a wide-ranging career that includes multiple nationally renowned books and recordings for children. Constantly composing, this album celebrates a year of that writing: reflecting on life, love, the pandemic, politics, and of death and dying. Forming an inspired band to realize these works, Susan's links to jazz, classical, fiddle and klezmer music provides fertile ground for guitarist Craig Wagner, bassist David Friesen and drummer Steve Barnes' orchestrations. Thousands of Ways' mix of instrumentals and songs range from the joyful "Flying My Kite" and "Ribbons in the Wind," to the subtle soundscape of "Desert Flower" or the tabla driven funk of "Cat Got Your Tongue."
