One of the greatest and most influential guitarists in the world, Preston Reed has been captivating audiences globally for almost three decades with the two-handed integrated percussive style he began developing in the 1980's. He is a direct influence on many of today’s best known acoustic players.
Premier Guitar Magazine said recently, "You can’t speak about the acoustic guitar scene today without including Preston Reed". Preston's music combines chord-based grooves, soaring melodic runs and polyrhythmic percussion, fulfilling the orchestral potential of the guitar body. The power and depth of Preston's timeless, imagery-evoking compositions are as unique as his execution. Blues, rock, metal, funk, jazz and classical styles are distilled into a breathtaking visual and sonic experience - a border-hopping musical language that tells stories without words.
As millions of YouTube viewers have discovered, Reed's recordings and live performances continue to define the sound of the pioneering compositional guitar genre he invented over a quarter century ago.
