Eli Paperboy Reed
In 2019, Eli “Paperboy” Reed always comes back in love with soul music. This American with the face of used car salesman could be described as the most worthy heir to the golden age of soul. A musical style that he does not have in the head but in the blood.
With the release of 99 Cent Dreams, his 6th album, he writes with the kind of casual confidence that only experience provides, and the result is the most refined and emotionally sophisticated music of his entire career. It is an exuberant and exhilarating record, a celebration of life and love delivered by a delighted messenger and always impressed by the power of these two elements.
His extraordinary voice predominates, of course, but his more assured interpretation has also matured, perhaps the result of a new perspective gained by becoming a father.
