As a result of passionate heart and hard work, Reanne Kyla (Schuetzle) who grew up in Kirriemuir, Ab. and graduated from High School in Altario, Ab., released her first album April 27, 2017.
My album “Chronicles of a Fervent Heart” consists of six songs, said Reanne.
Five of these tracks are original songs thatReanne has written, and one is a cover arrangement of Jon Bryant’s.
Four of the songs, A Song for the Morning, Silent Killer, Scarlet & Gold and David Livingstone, were all simple productions, recorded at Evergreen Sound in Calgary, Ab.
Two other songs, Sacred Words and The Crave, were full production tunes recorded at OCL Studios in Calgary.
“I had the privilege of collaborating with some of Canada’s finest musicians to help bring these songs to life,” said Schuetzle.
“I will now be moving to the Calgary area where I will be pursuing music as an independent artist”, said Reanne.
Reanne first started taking piano lessons when she was in elementary school.
“I enjoyed it, but I had a difficult time grasping music theory. As I got older, music continued to be in my life”.
She played clarinet for a few years in band class and then eventually picked up the guitar.
“When I began guitar I simply couldn’t stop – there was something special about it. I knew that it was for me”.
During her teenage years, she had the opportunity to be in various rock bands and started to take music more seriously during high school. She competed annually in the Consort school Battle of the Bands and achieved multiple individual awards, as well as band awards.
It was during this time that she led a band ‘Redeemed’ and together they travelled and did shows around local rural communities like Erskine, Trochu and Devon.
“When it came time to leave the rural community, I decided to attend Prairie College and pursue music under guidance from Juno Award winning songwriter Brian Doerksen, graduating in April 2017.
“A lot of growth happened during these two years of schooling. I began to realize that acoustic music moved me the most. From this discovery and growing passion I have been able to grow and develop my song writing skills.”
As part of her program at Prairie College, she had the incredible opportunity to record her very first album. When she first heard about recording an album she said she was super excited, but in my heart I feared that my material wasn’t good enough. This fear motivated me to focus on my song writing skills even more.
November 2016, the entire process began where Reanne began to learn how the process of recording works.
Her album “Chronicles of a Fervent Heart” is now available via her website: www.reannekyla.com, as well as bandcamp, iTunes, and Spotify. A physical copy can be ordered that through Reanne’s website, or contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
