At 26 years old, Eli “Paperboy” Reed has already walked the path of soul crooners three times his own age. His resume is littered with references to mornings spent sweeping up after Gospel service up in Chicago and evenings spent grinding it out in Juke Joints down in the Mississippi Delta. If this kid told you he got himself around the country hopping train cars, you probably wouldn’t raise an eyebrow. Already a minor sensation in his native New England, Reed has garnered international acclaim as of late, due in no small part to his incendiary live show. Backed by a crackerjack eight-piece who go by the handle True Loves, Reed leaves stages in splinters and routinely draws comparisons to Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett. While his fellow soul revivalists over at the Daptone label continue to utilize archaic recording methods, Reed has joined forces with hip-hop producer Mike Elizondo for Come and Get It, his high-resolution major-label debut.
