Dan Reeder was created in Louisiana in 1954, the boy of the minister, but was raised in Southern California. He went to Santa Ana University and later researched artwork at Cal Condition Fullerton, where he fulfilled his German-born wife. The few relocated to Germany, where Reeder presently makes his living like a painter. Also a musician, Reeder started making his personal instruments, with them to create and record his personal songs on the documenting rig he also constructed himself. A cassette tape of Reeder’s function managed to get into John Prine’s hands and premiered on Prine’s Oh Boy label in 2003. The recording, simply known as Dan Reeder, received a great deal of critical acclaim because of its exclusive, homemade mixture of blues, folk, gospel, and field hollers, and because of its decidedly D.We.Y. strategy, which, given the actual fact that he constructed every device he played for the recording, Reeder has taken up to its furthest intense. Reeder has mentioned that he’s a painter who takes on music because “there are a few issues you can’t color.” Another recording on Oh Boy, Sweetheart, made an appearance in 2006.
