Calee Schroeder Reed was born in Rexburg, Idaho, and grew up in San Diego, California. Her mother was a vocal coach, and Calee was taught to sing at a very young age. By the time Calee was a teenager, her sisters and her were performing in multi-part harmony all over Southern California.
Calee began writing music of her own after high school – experimenting with different genres ranging from grunge rock to pop. When her mother was diagnosed with cancer, her focus turned to Christian media and worship music.
After battling colon cancer for four years, her mother became terminally ill and Calee began writing worship music of her own as a way to sustain her faith. Calee credits Christian music for keeping her belief in God alive after her mother’s passing.
She penned The Waiting Place – her debut album – as a way to give back to the music community and reach others who find themselves experiencing similar trials in life.
The album was released by Shadow Mountain Records in May of 2012. A music video for “She Put the Music in Me” features home video and photos of Calee’s mother. All proceeds from the download of that song in May were donated to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation.
Calee was married to Shaun Reed in April of 2012. They currently live in Idaho.
