Delnora Reed is an Entertainer based out of Nashville, Tennessee. She has been performing her signature blend of roots, country and folk music across the country since she was a teenager, continuing a long and distinguished family tradition in music.  Delnora released her first album, “Delnora”, while still in high school, garnering airplay on Country Radio in the United States and in the United Kingdom.  After graduating from Princeton Senior High School, she earned her bachelor’s degree from Concord University in just two and a half years while also being named one of the 10 “Best College Entertainers in America.”  Soon thereafter, she moved to Nashville where she was signed to an Artist Development deal for a Major Record Label.  Two subsequent major record label deals and a few independent projects have served to continue honing her craft.

 

"Music’s in the bloodlines for Delnora Reed; her great-grandfather Henry Reed’s fiddle tunes are a centerpiece of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. Her own efforts, while steeped in old-time country and bluegrass, are considerably more contemporary. Such songs as “Sleepwalking” split the difference between Alison Krauss and Patty Griffin, with hushed sincerity and gutsy delivery." ~ K. Oliver

 

Delnora was a founding member of Blue Eyed Grass, a critically acclaimed duo.  In additional to writing and performing music, she managed the duo, promoted it nationwide, and produced three studio albums.  When the duo ended, she turned her attention back to being a solo act.  Throughout her career she has written with some of Nashville’s finest songwriters.  Two years ago she began working with Reed Nielson (“My Town”, “Little Liza Jane”, and many more).  They collaborated on eight remarkable songs that form the backbone of her latest solo project, “My Song”.

 

"There is a hidden gem in Nashville that deserves more recognition than she has ever received by the name of Delnora Reed. She has one of the prettiest voices in Music City and has finally released a new record titled, My Song. Her voice is so pure you can hear the emotions with every word… After reviewing her albums for some time, it has been an honor to see her grow as an artist and with the results of My Song she has finally found her mark."  ~ Scott Sexton
