Eli “Paperboy” Reed Releases Come and Get It

On his Capitol Records debut, Come and Get It!, Eli “Paperboy” Reed proves to be the life of a soulful, sweaty party where everyone eventually gets dragged onto the dance floor. He incorporates the feel of classic R&B and soul into a largely self-penned album produced with Mike Elizondo. As a performer, Reed approaches each song with nothing less than utter conviction; he’s as authentically gritty as he is ingratiatingly sexy. Admirers have likened Reed to such luminaries as Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett, but Reed is channeling his influences and inspirations into making something all his own.
