Nancy Reed and Spencer Reed's unique brand of vocal and instrumental styling has been enjoyed by audiences for over 30 years.

Their forte is their vocal blend, with tight yet natural phrasing and unusual harmony. Both grew up in New York City and started their musical collaboration as teenagers in the Bronx. They were influenced by the classic performances of Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, Carmen McRae and Jackie and Roy.
