C&L Welcomes Jared Reynolds To The LNMC: 'A Man, A Spoon, And His Guitar'

Hello folks! My name is Jared Shade Reynolds and I am honored to be the 'new guy' here at LNMC. For my inaugural post I want to introduce you to a man I call 'Spoon Guitar Man', mainly for the fact that all I know about him is that he is a man who plays guitar with a spoon in his mouth. Everything about this video makes me pretty dang happy and I hope you feel the same after watching. What songs make you feel that all is well in the world, if only for a moment?

John Amato:

I am so thrilled to have Jared helping us here at the LNMC. He's a terrific musician who Ben Folds told me was da bomb. Here's a little bio of our new maestro so you get to know him better:

Jared Shade Reynolds grew up in places as exotic as Honduras, Costa Rica and South Carolina. He has spent the last 11 years of his life touring and recording as a bassist/vocalist for various musical acts, most notably Ben Folds and Brendan Benson.

He lives in Nashville with his wife Laura and their children, Belle and Shade. His love of food and books is only overshadowed by his obsession with distance running, and he hopes to have a masters in Social Work within the next five years.

Please welcome Jared to the site.
