Alaska Reid comes by way of Park County, Montana, an enclave for writers, artists and ranchers of the American West. Reid began spending more and more time in Los Angeles come late-teens. From 14–18 she began gigging around L.A. Eventually during her time in L.A. 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. In the years since, she’s brought her unique take on Americana across the country, opening for the likes of Charli XCX, Porches, Caroline Polachek, Magdalena Bay, Del Water Gap and the Drums, all while writing her debut full-length, Disenchanter. Due out July 14 via Luminelle, Disenchanter is as much a collection of stories as it is a collection of songs.
