Reeb was raised in Waterville, Washington by a family of wheat farmers. She grew up listening to her father and uncles, the Willms Brothers, singing country and traditional songs. Reeb began singing and player guitar in her early twenties and quickly displayed a strong vocal style that is clearly her own. She is a respected and well-loved singer and joined the Foghorn Stringband in 2010. Her love for old time fiddle tunes and old country songs roots her in a classic American musical style.
