Since 2011, The Ria Reece Band has been on a touring rampage, exciting audiences with their artistry and approach to rhythm and blues. Across the country of Canada, they have been featured and played on several radio stations, as well as charting on others. As their prowess as a live act has grown, so have their fans and now they have released an album that will appease their current fans and welcome others into their musical fold. The band has played at many esteemed venues, including the Upstairs Jazz Bar in Montreal, the Little Imperial Bar in Quebec, and performed at the Quebec Summer Festival to a receptive crowd.
Some of the finest in old school R&B is evident on stage with just a listen to The Ria Reece Band. Based in Montreal, the band has released its self-titled album, which has been heralded as a return to musicality and a nod to legends of the past such as Al Green and Donny Hathaway. Ria Reece’s voice shines on the Etta James classics I’d Rather Go Blind and At Last.
