Writer/Photographer Jenn Hutt recently interviewed Will Thomas Reed
Jenn Hutt: What was it like being a part of the music industry at 13 years old?
Will Thomas Reed: Ever since I can remember, I've been playing music. I started playing drums at the ripe age of 4 and guitar around 7 so when I started playing out at clubs and venues at the age of 13, I was more just excited about finally getting to play out for more people than just my buddies and family. To have an actual audience of people that had never heard me before and have the weight and pressure of performing, impressing and attempting to captivate an audience didn't really sink in until I was older. It was always just about having fun and making people bob their heads and move their feet. And I guess at the end of the day it still is for me.
JH: What is the driving force behind you wanting to play music?
WTR: I've always loved playing music. It’s just always made sense to me and felt effortless and where I needed to be. I’m not comfortable doing other things like I am with music.
JH: What was it like switching from Rock back to your Country roots?
