Review - "Broken Arrows" Release - The Clothes Maiden
Singer-songwriter Reid Lee has released his debut album Broken Arrows, an elegant collection of emotive pop. “The title Broken Arrows, is about boldly taking chances, regardless of the outcome. For years, I fooled myself into believing I felt complete performing other people’s music. Now, it is time for step forward and speak up with my own words,” Reid shares.
And Lee doesn’t fall short from these words through the lyricism of this album. The album kicks off with Arrowheads, a soulful and sweet Americana track with a country heart, telling the story of a man in love while gone off to war through rich harmony and a romantic lead vocal. He then makes you feel the heartbreak of losing a lover without saying a final goodbye in Lady Macbeth. You can hear the revenge and power he gains after having insight of a lost requited lovers goodbye in his voice throughout the evolution of the song. He finishes off the album with I’ll Take Care Of You, an old soul country inspired hymn that brings his love story album back into full circle, offering to put a roof over his lover’s head again. The heart and soul Lee puts into this album is evident in each guitar strum and vocal note hit. Definitely worth a listen!
