Reed Four is a 90's inspired indie alternative rock band from southwestern Indiana founded in December 2013 by band members Andria Reed, Joe Vowels, Josh Case, and Matthew Hyneman. Their music shares similar sounds and emotions from bands like Pixies, Radiohead, Faith No More, The Joy Formidable, and Alabama Shakes.
Staying true to indie form, Reed Four self released their demo, "Bedford to Bellemeade", a melodramatic concept album on September 24th of 2016. Throughout the following year, they released music videos for three singles off of the album; "Old Piano", "How I Feel for Me", and "Drive". Each music video was purposefully crafted to connect and play out as a short film when viewed in sequential order. Every member of the band had a small cameo in the music video for "Old Piano". The music video for the final single "How I Feel for Me" was released on December 13th of 2017 marking closure for the "Bedford to Bellemeade" project. Since its release Reed Four's have appeared for studio performances on TV, radio stations, and have also had tracks from Bedford to Bellemeade featured on radio station playlists throughout the US.

"Reed Four have been busy fine-tuning a darker, heavier sound." "Cocoon has been worth the...wait..." for "Andria's powerful vocals...," it's "...swelling synth sounds..., and for it's "...booming guitar..." riffs - robilaz Gig Radar Blog
