Corner of My Mind is Rusty Reid’s Single Out Now

This artist’s music touched me, with a refined and profound compositional style.

Surely we are dealing with a great artist with a lot of compositional experience behind him. A songwriter with a developed artistic taste and solid artistic maturity.

Corner of My Mind is a nostalgic song. The musical arrangements are fantastic. The guitar recalls that of the Eagles and the vocal interpretation is delicate and sweet. You’d listen to Rusty Reid’s music for hours.

The album that includes this song is titled Bayou Line (Songs from Houston) and I recommend everyone to listen to it all to fully understand Rusty Reid’s musical universe.

A country rock that finds its roots in traditional American music. The production is impeccable and frankly, all the tunes are interesting.

The guitar dominates the music of this artist and the lyrics are full of meaning and have the ability to touch the soul of the listener.

A great find that I recommend to everyone.

Corner of My Mind is Rusty Reid’s Single Out Now!

Mature and Intense!

Corner of My Mind is Rusty Reid’s Single Out Now

Rusty Reid is an American independent, indie folk-country-rock singer-songwriter. Born and raised in West Texas, he came of age in the late 1960s, and still carries the spirit of that revolutionary era in his head and heart.

Rusty was born and raised in Midland, Texas. He graduated from Midland High School, and from the University of Houston with a degree in Communications. In addition to Midland and Houston, he has lived in Austin, Nashville and Los Angeles. He is currently based near Seattle, Washington.

Rusty writes melodic, guitar-powered songs, many of which are philosophic, political and/or spiritual (not religious) in thematic content. He writes songs for the world, extolling universal virtue, defending the oppressed, and is a frequent thrower of musical fireballs at the citadel of conformity and all of its many cults.

Rusty’s latest album is the 2023 album release Bayou Line: Songs from Houston, a collection of re-recordings of songs he wrote during the time he lived in Houston, Texas. These are previously unreleased favorites of his original fans. They chronicle the development and emergence of a distinctive singer-songwriter.

Steeped in country music, British pop, surf rock, psychedelic rock and many other influences, Rusty grew up on the dusty plains of West Texas, also the strange homeland of many revered singer-songwriters. Immediately after graduating from high school, Rusty headed for larger opportunities. He honed his songwriting craft while at the University of Houston, then left Texas for a stint as a staff songwriter for a large publishing house in Nashville. There he had invaluable opportunities for mixing with other songwriters and recording at famed RCA Studio B. Believing his material might be better suited for a more pop or rock oriented music center, he moved to Los Angeles, dabbling in the L.A. original music scene, but not finding his niche. He went back to Houston to finish college, play in a few bands and write magazine articles, then back, once more, to Los Angeles in 1984. Distractions and misdirections ensued as he indulged a position as a sports writer/editor with a large magazine publisher. In 1990, Rusty embarked on a solo trip around the world, upon which a new consciousness and spirituality emerged. A move to the Seattle area in 1995 was intended to help restart his music pathway, but merely making a living usurped most of his time and energy. He finally released his first CD in the summer of 2001, NWXSW, something of a “best-of” collection of his recorded material at the time. Then came 9/11 and other events which derailed any serious promotion of NWXSW. Fallow years ensued, and Rusty considered that his music “career” had permanently failed to launch.

Around 2014, the tide turned and the songs began to flow again. This time, powerful songs. Songs of philosophy, politics and spirituality (not religion). The direction hinted at by a handful of songs on NWXSW would lead to a concept album like no other. In 2019, Rusty released his “opus,” Head to Heart, a 78-minute “Revolutionary Manifesto in Song!”

His latest singles (not on albums) are “Shelter,” a cover version of the 1980s-era hit for Lone Justice, and two politically-charged songs, “American Villain” and “The United States of Selfishness” both released in November 2020.
