Review – Emily Reid

By: Amanda Hather

EP – Drifter
iTunes Link –
Release Date – January 21st, 2014
Genre – Country

This three song release from country/pop artist Emily Reid blends country with pop in a seamless way and shows her musical talent. Albeit a short EP, it does not disappoint.

The songs “Be Your Last” seems to be about Reid’s journey from Canada to America when she started to pursue her music. “Ain’t Nothin’” is a slower song compared to the other two songs, with a more laid back vibe to it. “The River” picks up the pace again with catchy music and beautiful vocals.

Over all this EP is impressive and very enjoyable to listen to. You should definitely give it a chance if you are a fan of country music.

Rating: 4.5/5

Emily Reid on social media:


I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
