Dan Reed (Dan Reed Network)
Dan Reed features in our singer songwriter sequences and, with the Dan Reed Network, in our melodic rock sequences.
The first new Dan Reed Network album for 25 years was released via Frontiers in June 2016.
The band reformed for a New Year’s Eve gig in their home town of Portland, Oregon in 2012 and from that time they have toured in the UK and played various festival gigs including Download.
The band formed in the mid-1980s and had considerable success with their first three albums. They also toured with Bon Jovi and The Rolling Stones. After their third album – ‘The Heat’ in 1991 – the band split and the band members pursued other musical interests.
Frontman Dan Reed owned a club in his home town for a time, toured the world including a spiritually awakening sojurn in India, and from 2008 onwards has pursued a successful, if low-key solo career.
