Ladies and gentlemen, I give you… Kurtis Reid

Remember the name, because MetMusic are sure that you’ll be seeing it on a billboard in the not too distant future. The 21 year old singer songwriter, a music student at Leeds Metropolitan University, has big ambitions for a career in the music industry. He states his role models as Adele, Stevie wonder and James Morrison which is no surprise as his powerful vocals could be likened to those of his peers.

Reid recently launched his first album, ‘returning to base’  at the Well in Leeds city centre and can often be found at open mic nights around the city. Never far from his supporting band, he has surrounded himself with exciting young musicians who are masters of their chosen instruments. Josh Appleby, 21 plays lead guitar and compliments the lead singers powerful vocals with electrifying solos , whilst Simon Benfer, 22 keeps a rhythm that brings the whole set together. Adam Greenhead and Ben Bowers are the heartbeat of the band on the base and drums respectively.

Although there are no plans for any upcoming gigs over the summer, we hope to be seeing them back on the stage again at some point during 2011. With ‘returning to base’   released on 23/05/2011 their return will be eagerly anticipated by what is sure to be a growing fan base. Metmusic are certainly huge fans and cant wit to hear more from Kurtis and the band.

You heard the name here first!!
