Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reed Shows Off His Soulful Chops on New Album

Listen to the lead single, ‘Cut Ya Down,’ below

Music By
Eli Paperboy Reed
(Roberto Chamorro)


Eli “Paperboy” Reed may hail from Brookline, Massachusetts, but his soulful, gospel-tinged vocal delivery makes him sound like he’s a Southerner to the core. And that’s not so far off: At 18, Reed moved to Clarksdale, Mississippi, and became a sponge to the local Delta blues scene, hanging around the local juke joints. His path also led him to Chicago, where he spent a year as a minister of music at a church. He’s just released his latest album, My Way Home; and you can hear the lead single, “Cut Ya Down,” below. For more on Reed, click here.
