Asheville-based musician Andrew Reed’s “If All the World Were Right” charts on Billboard top 40

Press release:

Auspiciously released on 1.1.2018 Andrew Reed’s “If All the World Were Right” concept album was released by Artists International and the title track organically broke onto the world stage beginning in March. “I started getting calls and inquiries from people I didn’t know and I thought they were a joke or scam…but then I looked at the chart and OMG! It’s there with Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, U2, Luke Bryan and Pink!” Last week, “If All the World Were Right” entered the Billboard Top 40 chart at #37. The song has also sits at #18 on the DRT/Cashbox Top 50 Adult Contemporary Chart, #14 on the New Music Weekly radio Hot 100 and has been the #1 on the New Music Weekly Airplay chart for the last 4 weeks. The record crossed over from college radio to mainstream tapping into some “worldwide consciousness.” There is no big money behind this album. It is just “happening” based on its own appeal to listeners.

Music press like the Huffington Post, LemonWire and music publications/critics from across the country bestowed accolades about, not only the music, but the message of the album. “If All the World is Right” creates an atmosphere to “believe in yourself” and “take charge of your thinking” with heavy doses of humility thrown in thanks to the struggles of life. The concept album is of a journey or pilgrimage. It is the journey of a Prodigal, who has to return home after being defeated by life and the world. Humility fills the album. The album was designed as something one can surround themselves with to support their own path of self-discovery.

Reed is no stranger to the music business. He has also produced legendary blues musicians like tough Texan, John McVey along with the late great Frosty Smith as well as multiple award-winning artists. He also produced and played on the #5 Billboard album for Daves Highway, An Acoustic Christmas. He also played with the critically acclaimed session-player group, Space Apaches.
