Album: What Love Is All About
Label: EMI Universal Canada
Release date: Nov. 13, 2015
Nominated for the 2008 Juno Award for Country Recording of the Year for Kicking Stones and named Male Artist of the Year at both the 2008 and 2009 CCMA Awards, Johnny Reid is no stranger to the Canadian country music scene. The fact that he was born in Scotland and resides in Nashville only further diversifies his influences.
“From a young age, I listened to all kinds of music,” Reid says. “My mother was a big fan of Stax and Detroit soul. My father was a big fan of all music as long as it told a story. I have taken the instrumentation, performance, and energy of soul and annexed that with storytelling of things that really matter in this world: family, love, and friendship.”
Having released seven best-selling albums and 2 multi-platinum certified DVD’s, Reid’s massive success has caught the attention of famed artists such as Joe Cocker, for whom he penned the platinum selling single “Fire It Up” and famed producer Bob Ezrin (Lou Reed, Kiss, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel), whom he shares a recording partnership with.
From the press release: "His recordings are filled with classic rock riffs laced with blue-collar roots and a voice that brims with force and honesty. He’s an undeniable fan favorite, writing songs that chronicle the working class hero and have a blue-collar everyman feel, filled with fervent honesty and just the right mix of both personal and universal storytelling."
