Savannah Ré is the perfect combination of sensitive and aggressive while also being more of either, whenever need be. 2018 has been a year full of changes and new opportunities, including collaborating with GRAMMY Award-nominated producer, Boi-1da (Drake, Rihanna, Beyoncé) and recently writing with veteran R&B hitmaker, Babyface. Savannah’s lyrics and general approach to music offers listeners a relatable experience. She’s very passionate about telling the story behind how those two identities come together for her and other women like her.
Over the last two years, Savannah Ré has become the one to watch in Canadian R&B. Soaring to dizzying new heights in her career with grace, poise and a ferocity indicative of someone who understands who she is and what she wants, there’s really nowhere to go but up.
Born to Jamaican parents and raised in Scarborough on R&B and Jamaican sounds, Savannah almost always knew she would be a singer. Though she initially attended school for visual arts, something clicked the first time she sang. “I loved the feeling of the emotional outpour. Music felt differently than if I were using my hands as a visual artist, or my body as a dancer,” Savannah says. Once she started using her voice, she felt complete.
No stranger to the hustle, Savannah often worked two jobs to facilitate her dream. But she also had to battle the lack of Black female representation in the Canadian music industry.
