Reeny Smith is a talented, 24 year-old emerging artist from North Preston, Nova Scotia and has been singing and playing the piano since the age of five. She credits her inspiration for music from time spent with family and friends at her local church, Saint Thomas Baptist, where she plays piano and is a member of three choirs.
Reeny was selected for the Portia White Award for Excellence in Vocal Performance in 2011, along with a scholarship from the Nova Scotia Talent Trust recognizing her outstanding musical attributes. She has shared the stage with the incredible Dinuk Wijeratne to a sold out crow at the Music Room as part of the Prismatic International Festival and sang for the incoming Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia at his induction ceremony at Province House.
She has recently opened for Grammy Award Winner Lisa Fischer at The Rebecca Cohn and received a standing ovation at the sold out concert.
