Steff Reed and New Soul Renaissance
Steff Reed is a singer, songwriter, producer and self-taught multi-instrumentalist who is currently touring and working on the follow-up to his self-produced debut EP, #TheIntervention. Reed is also promoting his latest single "Frontline" which has been heard at marches and protests throughout the east coast and mid west. The song reflects on the difficult time we face dealing with police brutality, much like great artists before us with songs that made question the harsh realities like Marvin Gaye's “What’s Going On?" Reed has won various awards for his work behind the scenes as a songwriter, composer and producer: working with artists such as Trey Songz, Swizz Beats, Eric Roberson, Kenny Lattimore and Jhene Aiko.
As a performer he has been invited to grace the stages of landmark New York City performance spaces (The Legendary Apollo Theater, S.O.B’s, The Bitter End and Webster Hall). He's performed at Protests and Rallies with prolific scholar and orator Dr. Cornel West, and toured iconic international performance venues (London’s Royal Albert Hall) with the late great soul icon Bobby Womack.
He has received attention from respected online media outlets such as NPR.com, AfroPunk.com, Vibe.com and print magazines including Essence Magazine. Reed's music has been played on National radio (107.5 FM WBLS with Lenny Green), Sirius Satelite Radio/Shade45 with Angela Yee and Power 105.1 FM and has been nominated for a GRAMMY award as Music Educator.
Although his career started in music he has now expanded his brand to include education, curating live music and art events, filmmaking, activism and philanthropy.
