Dan Reed, formerly of ‘Dan Reed Network’, (DRN) was born in Portland, Oregon but was moved to South Dakota at a very young age after his mother Elizabeth married a Cattle Rancher from the midwest by the name of Thomas Reed. It was here were Dan first found his love from music, singing in the school choir, playing trumpet in band and performing at proms and small bars with his first high school band ‘Nightwing’. After winning various local talent shows, Reed had it in his blood to pursue a life path in music and the arts.

Although there were many incarnations of bands Dan performed with in South Dakota and in Portland it was in December of 1985 where he truly first began his musical journey as the lead singer of a band called “The Dan Reed Network”. Garnering huge local support Dan Reed Network was signed to Polygram in 1987 by Derek Shulman, famed A+R man who signed ‘Bon Jovi’. Managed by Bill Graham and Q-Prime later, DRN played opening act on European tours for Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Midnight Oil, and performed in America with Run DMC and toured with UB40. Selling nearly 2 million albums worldwide, DRN was part of the funk rock movement and released three albums with Polygram between 1989 and 1992. The Dan Reed Network released three successful albums to much critical and commercial success between 1988 and 1992 and had the opportunity to work with producer greats Bruce Fairbairn, and Nile Rogers for the three Polygram releases, while managed by Bill Graham and Q-Prime respectively. Reed took a long hiatus from the music business in early 2003 and spent 4 years in Northern India and Jerusalem, living in a Tibetan Monastery and studying religions while in the Middle East. Coming back to music in 2009 he now performs extensively throughout Europe and the United States, both with his solo band and DRN and has in recent years performed at the ‘Sweden Rock Festival’ and England’s ‘Download Festival’ twice.
