You won’t want to miss North Preston R&B/Soul artist Reeny Smith and her seven-piece band.
Winner of the 2016 Music Nova Scotia African Canadian Artist of the Year award, Reeny is a rising star who has been taking stages by storm.
Raised in North Preston, Nova Scotia, Reeny has been singing and playing the piano since the age of five.
Her R&B flavoured songs are secular, but Smith’s emotion and expression are clearly rooted in gospel, with elements of jazz, blues and funk.
In 2011, Reeny won the African Nova Scotia Music Association (ANSMA) Up and Coming Artist Award, the Black Cultural Centre President’s Award, and was selected to represent Nova Scotia at the Canada Winter Games as part of the national artist performing program.
In 2012, she won the ANSMA Rising Star Award and in 2015 the Artist of the Year.
