 2009, Unsigned (Independent); Artist Management: Self-Managed,

Irene & Reed (indie rock/dark-tinged Americana) released its debut album, "Closer to Home," in March of 2010. Interweaving a raw American folk vibe with sultry blues/jazz vocals, a hint of pop sensibility and a playful blend of melodic rock, ragtime and classical piano, the album takes listeners on an emotional ride of aural storytelling. 
 
With music and lyrics inspired by vocalist Leslie Benson’s poetic works, Jason Reed Milner showcasing his skills on piano, organ, strings and guitar, and Milner’s brother, Brad, a former sound engineer from Sony Tree Studios in Nashville, TN, guest-performing on bass and percussion, the songwriters present a humble first-take glimpse of pure Midwestern culture. It’s about reclaiming the dreams you once had and remembering what you love most and the things that make you who you are — your home, your experiences and your family.
