Ep. 47 - Jensen Reed (Musician / Voice Over Actor)

As a listener of the STANDARD H Podcast, you may have heard me thank today’s guest at the end of every episode. Jensen Reed not only co-wrote the theme track to this show, he was one of the first people I met when I moved to Los Angeles. Coincidentally, we both moved to California within weeks of one another from the same town of Cary, North Carolina. It’s truly hard to believe it’s been nearly 14 years. We talk about how that all unfolded, while Jensen explains his path from being a solo musician to his successful career as a voice over artist. Though both professions involve microphones, the bridge that connected the two happened to be the sport of tennis. A major takeaway from this week’s episode is the incredible power of networking. We talk about music from the ‘80s & ‘90s, the albums his mom didn’t want him listening to, how he drove a Ranchero as his first car, as well as how he began making viral music videos with millions of views on Facebook. It’s always fun to sit down with someone who is such a close friend and this is no exception. You never know where life can take you, and for Jensen, life is taking him back east to Nashville, but I’ll let him tell it.
