Up and coming DC artist, Reesa Renee is a musician, singer and lyricist. Her sound is focused mostly on R&B but with clear jazz influences. Melding them together for a great listening experience.
Reesa launched her solo career in 2011 and is an independent artist. Through her obvious love and talent for music, she hopes to inspire her community to reach beyond their circumstances and achieve their dreams. Her debut album “Reelease,” is autobiographical and full of original songs about experiences she has gone through. “My album is going to be exactly that — my journey of discovering my voice, discovering my purpose,” says Reesa.
She has worked hard to get where she is. Reesa had a full time job as a personal trainer while she wrote her album. It was her creative outlet, but she had to learn to juggle two important responsibilities. While recording her album, she also played in small clubs, to get her name out there. It was in this process that she got a chance to play at the famed Apollo Theatre for its amateur night. She sang one of her own songs, and won!
Though Reesa is gaining great success she knows she is just starting. “I still need to learn things. I’m still feeling it out,” says Reesa. However, at the rate she is going, it is safe to say she’s doing a great job feeling things out and will be a hit in no time.
