Bio

Born, raised and based in Baltimore, Amy Reid has been making music and performing since 2010. Baltimore, blossoming with incredible creative people and energy, has been a motivating and supportive force for her musical endeavors. Chiffon, Reid’s current band alongside collaborator Chase O’Hara formed there in 2012 and has been performing locally, nationally and in Europe since then. Reid’s solo project was formed when music became a necessary therapy and form of expression for a series of complex life experiences. “These songs felt very personal but, still relatable and emotive,” Reid says. Reid arrived at the title “Hirsute” to reference growth; in terms of relationships with oneself, others held close, and sexuality. “It is a reflection of organic, very human experiences getting tangled with outside factors out of one’s control… These sonic explorations embody experiencing chaos balanced with love and tender moments. Anxiety and serenity.” Extending beyond Chiffon and her solo work, Reid is the founder of a Baltimore Collective called GRL PWR made up of herself, Pangelica, and Waqia Kareem. GRL PWR aims to create a platform for a diverse array of artist and creatives, specifically: womyn identified, POC, trans, non-binary, femme & queer artists. GRL PWR events have brought together artists from across the US for unique and unforgettable events.
