Reverend Wallace Smith Sr
Reeny Smith is a powerhouse on the stage and in the studio. As a 26-year-old singer, songwriter, musician, and producer, her age – and her modest disposition – may be deceiving.
Whether she is playing with a full band, as a trio with her backup singers or solo on the keys, Reeny delivers magic every time, lighting up the room. Her extraordinary vocals, confident stage presence, and energetic live show make for a truly unforgettable, entertaining experience. Her natural born talent was inspired and nurtured by her family and friends growing up in North Preston, Nova Scotia. In 2015, she enrolled in the prestigious Music Arts program at St. FX University, majoring in jazz vocals, and released her first EP, I Am Reeny.
Enriched with studies at St. Francis Xavier and Humber College, JR Smith is primarily self-made and community built.
