We had the good fortune of connecting with Preston Reid and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Preston, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I honestly feel like the career and ultimately the lifestyle chose me! I’ve been in music to varying forms my entire life.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I think in any craft, your experiences and influences will make what you do unique. Is it easy? Absolutely not. There are times in the journey where you really have to fight for what you believe in and the vision you have for yourself. But that’s what makes it all worth it.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would definitely take them somewhere in Buckhead. Plenty of things to do on that side of town.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to shoutout the city where I’m from. That’s Chicago! the city, the suburbs and everywhere in between. I feel like growing up in the midwest in general is a melting pot of influences and inspiration that can create some really unique tastes in music and art.
