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'' produced by Soke from Banx & Ranx was released in May 2019. It spent more than 42 weeks on the chart of one of the city's most listened to radio station The Beat 92.5 FM (DBS) peaking at #5 on their Canadian Hit 20 chart and #23 on their Montreal Top 40 chart. The song also peeked at #3 on PalmarèsADISQ’s chart, featuring the most played tracks on Quebec's english radio stations.
After performing more than 20 shows throughout the summer of 2019, which included Montreal's renowned music festival POP MONTREAL, Ottawa's Latin festival SONIDO and Toronto’s Artist showcase The Hustle, Odreii released "Go Solo", a new single in collaboration with DJ Kleancut released on March 20, 2020 with a music video.
Catch her playing with a band or rocking the stage solo with her guitar during the scheduled shows for summer 2020. Odreii has been confirmed to perform at METRO METRO Festival, Canadian Music Week in Toronto, MIDEM in Cannes, followed by showcases in Paris and London.
