Eli "Paperboy" Reed meets High & Mighty Brass Band
​The collaboration between Soul shouter Eli "Paperboy" Reed and the 10 piece bombastic fury that is High & Mighty Brass Band was a long time coming.

From the first time that Reed joined High & Mighty on stage it was clear that the combination was special.​ ​After several high-profile shows together in Brooklyn, NY and Las Vegas, NV, it became abundantly clear that The Paperboy and The Brass Band needed to meet in the recording studio.

Over the course of three days in July of 2017, they recorded 11 tracks, all live to reel-to-reel tape. The selections include radical brass-band rearrangements of some of Reed’s Soul classics (“Come and Get It”, “WooHoo”, “Take My Love With You”), covers (Beyonce’s “Love on Top”) and a brand new Reed composition written specifically for this LP (“As I Live and Breathe”).

The finished product, Eli Paperboy Reed meets High & Mighty Brass Band, showcases the strengths of both performers. The sheer power and dynamic interplay of the High & Mighty horns coupled with the aggressive, exciting and preeminently soulful singing of Reed ​makes this earns this record a permanent home on any funk/soul/NOLA playlist!
