Musical Bio

Royce Reed


Texas honky-tonks and Oklahoma blues bars are where Royce Reed honed his piano chops on boogie-woogie, blues shuffles, western swing, classic country, and southern rock. Starting with classical piano at the age of 6, to lessons with jazz pianist Jac Murphy as a teen, he was gigging by the tender age of 14 in Dallas blues bars and country honky-tonks. For 50 years he’s played the piano blues, country, swing, rockabilly, & soul music of the South.

Royce performs as a solo artist, as duo with musical friends, or with a backing band according to the requirements of the event and/or venue.  

Royce Reed and Ms. Jamie Inman, performing as "Jamie & Royce" represented the Suncoast Blues Society at the 2019 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. Jamie & Royce’s uptown low down blues is country blues, meets gospel, roots rock, swing, and boogie.
