About Eli "Paperboy" Reed

Eli "Paperboy" Reed's father was a critic and lent his records to his son, who gravitated toward gospel, soul, blues, and R&B and taught himself piano, guitar, and harmonica. In Chicago, Reed met soul singer Mitty Collier and was asked to be her church's Minister of Music, a position he held until he returned to Boston after a year of school. Back home, Reed self-released Sings "Walkin' and Talkin' (For My Baby)" and Other Smash Hits. Later signed to Q Division, Eli "Paperboy" Reed & the True Loves issued Roll with You -- with all songs written or co-written by Reed -- in 2008. Come and Get It!, Reed's major-label debut, was released two years later. ~ Marisa Brown
