autrice / compositrice / interprète
Born and raised in Montreal, Canadian/Jamaican singer songwriter Odreii grew up in a very musical environment. While living in the UK with her father, Odreii taught herself to play guitar so she could perform her original compositions in pubs around London. The first song she recorded was “Keep Smiling”, which yielded her a music scholarship at Tech Music School (BIMM) in 2011 after winning 1st Place at the prestigious The Stage UK vocal competition. In 2013, she won 1st Place at the AppleBeam songwriting competition and received a nomination for Best UKSC Pop Written Song with “Wondering”.
Odreii's single ''Runs In Mi Blood'' released in May 2019 was produced by Soke from Banx & Ranx and is currently charting at #4 in the top radio Anglophone of Quebec’s Palmarès Adisq, #9 in the Canada Hit 20 and #28 in the Montreal Top 40 of DBS radio station The Beat 92.5 FM.
After performing in more than 20 shows throughout the summer of 2019, which included Montreal's well known Pop Montreal festival, Sonido festival in Ottawa and The Hustle in Toronto, Odreii is releasing a new single with DJ Kleancut called ''Go Solo'' (also produced by Soke) which will be released with a music video on March 20, 2020.
For the summer of 2020, catch her playing with a band or solo with a DJ and her guitar. Odreii has been confirmed to perform at the Metro Metro Festival, and is doing an official showcase at Canadian Music Week in Toronto, MIDEM in Cannes, followed by showcases in Paris and London.
Odreii will be DJ Kleancut's guest artist all summer long during the Go Solo Festival Tour, where she will perform the two titles they have together “ Go Solo” and “ Link Up” as well as her Radio chart single “Runs in mi Blood”.
