Alaska Reid


Alaska Reid comes by way of Park County, Montana an enclave for writers, artists and ranchers of the American West. She went to a one-room schoolhouse, attended voice lessons from the only music teacher in town, singing in musty brown shag carpet basement, bars and in the dirt rink for the Livingston Round Up Rodeo.

Reid began spending more and more time in Los Angeles come late-teens. From 14-18 she began gigging around LA. Eventually during her time in LA after becoming fatigued by the way she was seen as a young girl singer-songwriter, Alaska began to lean into her obsession with loud guitars and fuzz (thanks to her favorite band Dinosaur Jr.). She formed a band, cold messaged John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr, Kurt Vile etc…) on Facebook and ended up releasing an album produced by him, entitled ‘Crush’. Reid and her band borrowed her parent’s minivan and toured around the West while playing the usual LA haunts trying to be grunge. She soon thereafter disbanded her project, feeling restricted and misunderstood as she wrote all the material herself and felt that people were not focusing on her lyrics.
