Eli “Paperboy” Reed grew up in Brookline and developed a passion for soul and gospel, which grew when he lived in Mississippi and Chicago.

He has an international following for songs like “Come And Get It.” It’s the title track off his first-major label album, which came out in 2010.

Now, he has a new album called “Nights Like This.” He’ll debut songs from the album Friday night at the Sinclair in Cambridge.
