Ep. 59: Priscilla Renea


This Florida-born, LA-based singer-songwriter wrote her first song at age eight and got her start posting self-recorded songs on YouTube as a teenager. Now, after spending nearly a decade as a chart topping songwriter, penning hits for stars like Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Pitbull, Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, Mary J. Blige, Madonna, Demi Lovato and many others, Renea has emerged to tell her own story with the chameleon-like stylistic range and emotional intelligence that has brought so many others’ hits to life. Spanning classic R&B, dark-edged country and urban-soul, her current album 'Coloured' is a fierce, political, and personal collection of stories that reckon with Priscilla's childhood in rural Florida, sublime love, violent heartbreak and racial trauma. And The Writer Is...Priscilla Renea!
