Country music, specifically red dirt and is the first person that Reed has met that rivals his love for lesser-known artists. 

Jack marion


Jack is the lead singer of The Pearl Snap Prophets. We really believe in him and his music, and he believes in CU. So we thought with his musical influences and the fact that he himself is an artist. Who better to write about "Underdog" artists than an "Underdog" artist? P.S. check out The Pearl Snap Prophets.
