It’s this carefully refined formula for songwriting that has brought Savannah Ré under the mentorship of Grammy Award-winning producer Boi-1da and has made her the go-to collaborator for R&B’s upper echelon having written with artists like Babyface, Jessie Reyez, Normani, and Wondagurl.
Opia, Savannah Ré’s remarkable debut project, is a testament to her dedication to her craft. Acclaim for Opia has been abundant from industry tastemakers, fans and esteemed outlets including FADER, BET, American Songwriter, HYPEBAE, and ELLE Canada among several others who have championed Savannah Ré over the past year.
Savannah Ré has been honoured with several accolades following the release of Opia including being nominated for the SOCAN Songwriting Prize, the Slaight Music Emerging Songwriter
Award, the Polaris Music Prize and both her “Solid” and “OPIA EXPERIENCE” music videos earned nominations for the 2021 Prism Prize. Savannah’s undeniable talent also recently earned her a place in Canadian music history as the first artist to ever be nominated for both the Contemporary R&B Recording of the Year JUNO Award (“Where You Are”) and the Traditional R&B/Soul Recording of the Year (“Solid”) JUNO Award. On Sunday, June 6, 2021, Savannah Ré became a first time JUNO Award Winner when she was awarded the Traditional R&B/Soul Recording of the Year JUNO Award, making Canadian music history a second time as the first artist to ever receive the Award.
