Toronto, ON-based singer-songwriter Renée Wynter has recently released her new single, “Speak”.
Inspired by the complications of modern relationships, Speak is an emotional R&B ballad that paints the importance of open communication with your significant other.
“I am very excited to be sharing my brand-new single this Fall. This single has been a true labour of love and a very special one to me.” says Renée Wynter. “Speak is all about relationships and the key to any successful relationship is communication. In this day and age, we are so quick to use outlets like social media to send subliminal messages when you can actually just pick up the phone and have a transparent conversation about whatever issues you have. I hope this song inspires people to work hard at connecting with each other on a more intimate and intelligent level. If we all just speak our minds, we would avoid so much of the hardships that we tend to endure when we keep things to ourselves. At the end of the day, you just have to speak up!”

Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
My music is R&B with a mix of soul. I love all kinds of music so I tend to mix it up a lot especially with some reggae and hip-hop. My writing style is very in the moment. I like to write about things in real-time. For example, depending on the day whether I’m happy, sad, or mad, whatever I am feeling, I write about it. Unless there’s a topic then that’s a bit different. Sometimes I hear melodies and I hum the tune all day. When the melody sticks, I know it’s a good sign.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
I’m performing a few times at the end of November! I haven’t finalized the details yet but I will have the dates soon. I recently performed at the Living Arts Centre in the Hammerson Hall. It was my first show in years and it felt really great to be back on stage. I didn’t realize how much I missed it, it was nice. Please check out my social media or Spotify for updates on all my show dates.
I would describe my set as fun, full of energy and positivity. Very interactive so be ready to enjoy yourself and let loose. Something to make you feel good, an experience to remember with your friends and family. I want you to be happy you came out to see me and when you leave you feel inspired to do something more with your life goals. If I can go out there and go after my childhood dreams, so can you.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
It would be my new song Speak. I want couples to connect or reconnect on a deeper level. Really go to the place that is uncomfortable and if you make it through that rough patch you’ll come out on the other side more in love. I even bet you’ll learn something new about your significant other. We grow in our relationships and we have to be willing to hear and speak about those changes. Change can be good.
