Solo Guitarist & Singer/SongWriter

Reid Umstattd

Growing up in Austin, TX, Reid Umstattd was constantly involved in the city's thriving live music scene. This exposure played a pivotal role in shaping him into one of the best solo guitarists of his generation. Austin, often hailed as the 'Live Music Capital of the World,' provided a rich backdrop for Reid's musical development, where he absorbed a diverse mix of Motown, Rock, and Country music.



Reid's journey as a guitarist gained momentum after signing a record deal with Willie Nelson's Pedernales Records. Touring the country and performing countless shows honed his skills, contributing to his reputation as one of the best solo guitarists in Austin. Reid recorded 3 full-length LPs and 2 EPs with his band Nelo, showcasing his exceptional guitar skills and versatile musicality. Taking a three-year hiatus, Reid returned to the spotlight by auditioning for season 14 of NBC's The Voice. His guitar prowess and unique vocal delivery impressed the judges, leading him to pass the Blind Audition stage and join Adam Levine’s team. Demonstrating the skills that make him one of the best solo guitarists, Reid advanced through two more rounds and reached the Live Rounds, standing out among over 40,000 hopefuls to make it to the top 24.



Currently, Reid is channeling his experiences and guitar expertise into his first solo project. Traveling between Muscle Shoals, AL, Nashville, TN, and Austin, he's crafting material that showcases why he's considered among the best solo guitarists. Fans eagerly await the release, anticipated by year's end, marking a new chapter in his illustrious career as a solo guitarist.
