“The rock gods must be very proud of 14 year-old musician Michael Reed Jr. whose jaw-dropping guitar skills are paving the way for him to turn his passion for music into a career ” 
​~ Menifee’s Artist of the Month, Shawnee Peacock.
While most teenagers have dreams of being a "Guitar Hero" by playing video games or learning quick and easy steps, one of Temecula's favored sons has taken his craft to a far more serious level!

Junior Reed is the brainchild for what the world will call Voltage Control! Writing, arranging, producing and even engineering have become second nature to this thriving young artist. With the release of his first E.P. (Simply titled Voltage Control) Junior Reed has taken the wisdom, the knowledge and the experience of his family and close friends musical journeys throughout their years and made a sound all his own! The lyrical and musical maturity is far beyond the years of this young man who displays passion and character with each note sung, and each chord performed!

Junior Reed has assembled his 3 man army with one of the finest rhythm sections in the Inland Empire. Bassist, Derulo Boulet and drummer, Christian Ruth are backing this powerhouse of music with a live performance that will only leave you wanting more!

The EP, having been recorded, engineered and produced by none other than Junior's father, Mike Reed who is no stranger to the industry having played and recorded with such bands as Deliverance, Drone and Final Warning. The recording displays a nuance of true, raw and emotionally driven material that challenges the listener to look beyond Juniors years, and enjoy some truly great moments in music here. Songs like "Sway with the Breeze" "Watching" and "Break of Day" are destined to be audience favorites at their live performances. 

Voltage Control sites influences such as "Queens of the Stone Age" "Foo Fighters" "Pink Floyd" and even "Bowie". With influences like these, this writer sees a band that has the word "visionary" slated for their future!
