She mentions that she and her hubby have been spending extra time with each other collaborating on music. “We’re actually writing a full-length [album] and we should be releasing that in the next couple of months and hopefully doing some touring in Europe. We’re playing a few shows at SXSW.” says Reed.  When it comes to expanding their family, Reed is in no rush to have kids. “Right now we’re just so focused on what we’re doing together musically and where we’re at in our careers,” Reed says. “I can’t try to predict what life has in store for us because obviously at a certain point, you throw your hands up and say what’s meant to happen will happen.
