A true singer, a real songwriter, a neoteric producer, an incredible dancer and striking performer, all wrapped up in a stunning package that could grace the cover of any magazine in the world, and yet, her down to earth country girl charm is what makes this extraordinary artist so real.
JD Reynolds was born an artist. “It’s in my blood. Music, melody, lyrics and dance flow through my veins, gifts straight from God for which I am thankful”. JD’s Mother had Elvis, Michael Jackson, Prince, Roy Orbison, Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston on daily replay in the house, so JD grew up listening to the King of Rock ‘n Roll, The Prince of Pop, The PRINCE of Everything, The Caruso of Rock, The Queen of Country Music and The Queen of the Night.
JD’s sound is fresh originality for Country music. “My entire album came to me like a bolt of lightning, the JD sound, my sound, respecting Country music roots yet having my own next level twist”. As an up-and-coming producer, JD teamed up with seasoned producer Braddon Williams to co-produce what Country music insiders have nicknamed “The Jagged Little Pill of Country”.
Braddon has achieved more than thirty top-ten hits, amassed over thirty times platinum in record sales, and his work has received both Grammy and ARIA award nominations, credits include Beyoncé, Snoop Dogg, P Diddy, The Script, Kelly Clarkson, and his latest favourite, JD Reynolds.
Braddon knew he was helping to create a unique Country album for an incredible talent. JD Reynolds is her own artist, incomparable, and the album reflects it. Braddon brought in the talents of; Murray Sheridan on drums, whose credits include Pink, Kelly Clarkson, The Script, BoysIIMen and The Vines. Kris Petersen is on guitars and banjo, whose credits include Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Orianthi, Van Halen and Billy Joel. Keyboards – Greg Agar (ARIA Award winner, OSCAR shortlisted, credits include Al Pacino). The intrinsic talents of Chi Ho Choi, an award-winning guitarist that added “banjo magic” heard in JD’s latest tracks.
Luke Lukess, on guitars, credits include The Veronicas, McFly, The Living End, Art vs Science, and Short Stack.
JD’s sound has been mastered by Andrew Mendelson, who has mastered dozens of #1, Grammy winning, gold and platinum projects by artists including The Rolling Stones, Blake Shelton, Eric Church and Willie Nelson.
As a trained dancer and award-winning choreographer, JD needs to dance her own moves as well as sing her own words and melodies. “Dance is a part of who I am, for me, dance is an expression of the soul, expressing what words simply cannot”. The three together have been described as “cutting edge visual poetry.”
Captivating those who hear her and mesmerizing those who see her, JD knows how to make Country sound great and look even better.
