"Little King of Dreams"
By: Dennis Roger Reed
Years in the making, with a cast of thousands, finally released. "Little King of Dreams" is 15 originals by Dennis Roger Reed, noted singer and songwriter in an acoustic folk rock mode. The cream of the crop of Orange County folk and bluegrass musicians (the Andy Rau Band, Paul Shelasky, Janet Beazley, Don Reed and many more) help make this a very special project.
Reed spent five years and recorded two albums as the bass player, songwriter and high harmony vocalist for the Andy Rau Band. He's had songs published and recorded in the Nashville, bluegrass and blues markets, and also currently performs and records as a member of the roots/rock/blues band Blue Mama.
"Little King of Dreams" is an acoustic production that features elements of country, folk, bluegrass, swing, rock and blues.

"This is a very fine recording. The music has a
relaxed yet lively feel,
