I chatted with Kirk Reed from Toronto band The Reed Effect on my back deck in June of 2020. We discuss time, creativity, thoughts on live entertainment and how to become a computer geek....plus the new album, 1973. On a sad note, almost four months to the date of our meeting, Kirk’s lost his only brother Chris and the other half of The Reed Effect. Chris tragically took his own life on October 10, 2020, just as the new music was about to be released. 1973 is not just as a tribute to Chris and his legacy, but a celebration of their collaboration and brotherly love.
