Biography

“It’s been a wild ride, that’s for sure,” admits Eli “Paperboy” Reed, looking back at the incredible journey that took the boyish-looking yet preternaturally mature soul belter from a Boston high school band room to a Mississippi Delta juke joint, from Sunday morning gigs behind the organ at a tiny South Side Chicago church to headlining the coolest clubs in ...

Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the dynamic Soul/Rock vocalist. Think big-name modern crooners like Michael Buble`, Harry Connick Jr. and Jamie Cullum that capture the nostalgic hearts of the older baby-boomer consumer but also think Amy Winehouse, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and Duffy that attract the young hipsters and that is who Eli 'Paperboy' Reed appeals to. His music is an authentic throwback to R&B/Soul of the 1960s yet also fresh, accessible and modern. He is a progressive Soul-revivalist and it's with a broad appeal that Mr. Paperboy is setting out to conquer the world as the next big thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Someone To Keep An Eye On August 13, 2010
Format:Audio CD
During an era when every year or so there seems to be someone mining the retro soul movement there doesn't seem to be any room for any new and innovative stars in a genre where by it's very nature innovation it's almost a contradiction in terms. Standing out in this area largely depends on the personality of the artist in question. And here in Eli 'Paperboy' Reed we have an artist and performer with plenty to stand out about. Never mind he already had a very impressive debut with Roll with You but there are absolutely no chances of any sophomore slump here at all. In fact,if the cards are set where they seem to be we're dealing with a serious contender here with a lot of possibility. What makes Reed stand out is not the fact that he's recycling a music whose time has already come and gone simply to cash in on a trend or to misinterpret it's intentions. He's also not especially interested in making condescending nods to contemporary dance and/or hip-hop music just to up his credibility among media cliques.

The production style he's chosen for this album is simply incredible for another thing. More often than none retro soul albums either rely on a collection of samples or a small rhythm section. Much as with his similarly themed contemporary Robin Thicke,Reed believes strongly in actually producing his records with the horn and rhythm section blending beautifully with strong percussive touches on songs such as "Name Calling","Just Like Me",the amazing title song and "Young Girl". These are the type of productions and songwriting I haven't honestly heard the likes of much outside of people such as Motown's "Corporation" (songwriters for the Jackson 5) or the Hayes-Porter writing production team at Stax.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun music with a retro feel! August 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD
The best way for me to describe this CD is up beat, alive, hip, cool, awesome, out of sight. Yes, those adjectives give you some idea as to my age. I enjoy hearing new titles performed with finesse using modern recording techniques. This package has it all. It has a clean, bright sound with a R&B retro feel. The horn arrangements are tight. The singing is right on. I wish this young man all the best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul music: Grandpa's recipe cooked up fresh February 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I decided to give this CD a try after watching Mr. Reed perform "Take A Number" when he was a guest on an episode of Daryl Hall's "Live From Daryl's House" webcast last year.

I was not disappointed.

Sure, he's a mining a vein of classic R&B/soul music that was a mainstay of AM radio back in the 60s, but Reed's songs are fresh, extremely catchy, and not at all self-conscious given the debt owed to his predecessors.

The arrangements are sharp, and his vocals have an authentic quality--perhaps tinged with a certain emotional innocence--that draws me in and makes me want to believe. He holds my attention throughout, and each song has become like an old friend.

In fact, I've ended up listening to this recording more than any other I've bought in the last couple of years.

Yep, as far as I'm concerned, Mr. Reed is the real deal.

3.0 out of 5 stars I Don't Get It - Bigger But Not Better August 21, 2010
By Billy D
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I learned of this artist after he was profiled by a major trade magazine for his previous CD, "Roll With You". I much prefer that CD to his latest effort, "Come and Get It".

Yes, it's still Eli but everthing on this new CD is...well, more. More instruments (including strings), more backup singers, more volume, more electrification. Eli's vocals are mixed "front and center" while Eli is part of the music (and band) on "Roll With You". One wonders if this major style change is being driven by Eli's new mainstream record label.

The sonics of Eli's vocals are curiously bad on several of the cuts. I don't know if it's intential but the distorted sound quality resembles that of a small speaker beinging grossly over-powered.

I think Eli's next CD will indicate which direction this niche musician is taking. I predict a movie (or reality TV) is already on the drawing board...

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeping Soul 'Musac' Alive! September 27, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I first read about Eli "Paperboy" Reed in Billboard Magazine and thought he would be an artist I might be able to relate to as a listener. Sure enough, I purchased his third album Come and Get It!, and I was impressed with Reed's knack for soul music as well as the personality he exudes on album. Come And Get It is not revolutionary (it would be considered more an anachronism in this day and age), but it is a solid album and it does not rely on "gimmickry" like so much of R&B music does today.

"Young Girl" opens up the album exceptionally with nice classic soul production tactics in full effects (horns, piano, etc.) Reed's vocals are characteristic of soul in its finest. He sings the catchy refrain with a great burst of energy ("I'm gonna stop and give you all the love I've got young girl"). "Name Calling" is similarly great, finding Reed exhibiting great vocal prowess, especially where his falsetto is concerned. Again, songwriting plays a key role in the success of this track with a finely penned refrain: "you went from name-calling (name-calling) to calling my name/you went from school yard teasing to all night pleasing." Sure maybe it's a bit corny, but thinking back to classic soul/R&B acts, didn't they have their corny moments? The Supremes `tongue-in-cheek' style helped to make them the sensations that they became, right?

"Help Me," turns out to be the best cut of the album at this point, with the production propelling the success. Here subtle organ is mixed into the background, along with a guitar riff panned to the left in the mix - all channeling the classic soul sound, particular the sounds of say Stax Records (Isaac Hayes, etc.

If the Motown sound is your thing, this cd might be worth checking out. Bright and snappy yet mellow and smooth at times.
