About

In some ways, the country-soul sound of Priscilla Renea’s game-changing new album, Coloured, finds the singer and chart-topping songwriter coming full circle. A child of the Navy who bounced around the South growing up, Renea was living in Jacksonville, Florida, when she wrote her first song at eight years old. “I was vacuuming the hallway and started singing this melody and lyrics,” she recalls. “It was something like ‘Walking down the highway, looking at the skyway,’ and it was a country song. Pretty much every song I've ever written is a country song in some way,” Renea says, going on to cite her co-writes on such hits as Rihanna’s “California King Bed,” Pitbull’s No. 1 smash "Timber," and "Somethin' Bad," her Country No. 1 for Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood, as examples. “So it’s funny that I’m now being myself and writing songs about my childhood and they naturally have this dark, swampy, country-western feel. I didn't do that on purpose. That's just in me from growing up in the South.”
