Eleven presents: Betty Reed – Mistakes Made, Lessons Learned (Acoustic Version)

Nashville artist Betty Reed shares the (Acoustic Version) of her EP “Mistakes Made, Lessons Learned”, available on all digital stores.

For the EP, Betty Reed, a Berklee College of Music graduate, collaborated with Nashville producer, Evan Redwine, who brought on acoustic guitarist, Nate Dugger and percussionist, Josh Hunt, to give these stripped-down songs a multi-layered, rich sound.

Betty Reed says: “Evan lent another perspective to my personal story, essentially that men who cry are deemed less manly, which carries the extra burden of being both ostracized and suffering the consequences of keeping their feelings bottled up.”

Even though the subject matter of most of my songs is serious, I mask it with an upbeat vibe—it’s like this veneer of cheeriness that you feel you have to project in order to feel normal.
