Brenda Reed is a San Francisco-based award winning singer and actress who’s talents and accomplishments are as impressive as the musical journey that has brought her to San Francisco’s Swishcraft Music in 2010. At the very young age of 12 Brenda knew that singing jazz was one of her true passions. This passion lead to extensive live performing with various accomplished Jazz groups, and to the eventual release of her first Jazz CD, “Lush Life” in 2003. A headlining gig at San Francisco’s prestigious Plush Room soon followed.
In addition to a successful music career, Brenda is an active member of the theatre where she won the TBA Critic’s Circle Award for Best Supporting Actress in a musical (“Chess”) in 2001.
Hooking up with the Blues scene in her native Sonoma County soon followed, where she sang for The Bonafide Blue, recording the hit “On the Edge of a Dream” in 2008. Brenda played numerous high profile Blues Festivals, which included opening for Elvin Bishop and Volker Strifler in Sonoma County. Brenda eventually ventured into the world of night club dance music after meeting Bay Sounds Studio’s and L.F.B founder Leo Frappier. She started recording dance originals and covers for L.F.B tunes with the virtuosity, originality and soul that seemed to be lacking in the repetitive dance arena of the early 2000′s. With one massive single “Midnight” under her belt on Swishcraft Music, Brenda is set to take the world by storm with “Coming Back” in mid 2011.
