Singer-songwriter, Reid Genauer first hit the national stage fronting the band Strangefolk in the mid-nineties. Since then he has gone on to cement his reputation as a prolific songsmith and bandleader, fronting a second grassroots success story - Assembly of Dust. Beyond his bandmates, Genauer has his recordings gilded with guest performances from Bela Fleck, John Scofield, Mike Gordon, David Grisman, and Richie Havens.

In terms of genre, Assembly of Dust and Strangefolk showcase a Psychedelic infused Folk Rock, and have been compared to the likes of Paul Simon, CSNY, and The Band. Strangefolk leans more towards the psychedelic and Assembly of Dust more towards Americana. The commonality of both groups is the backbone of Genauer's trademark songs, characterized by crafted lyrics, American stories, and authentic vocal performances.

While he is best known in context with other musicians, Genauer traces his musical roots to solo singer-songwriters and has dabbled in this arena.
