A talented Year 11 singer from The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College has recently released her second cover track with the help of a local artist development organisation.

In her latest song, Apollo House student, Ree Reesby delivered an emotional performance of Calum Scott's song "You Are The Reason" which was published and shared by Big Help Music and was produced with support from Rugby Area Talent Trust.

In September 2018, to support her development as a singer Ree joined Big Help Academy and now regularly attends workshops with songwriters at Strawhouse recording studio. Ree is in good hands because Big Help Music are the UK’s leading artist development record label and have almost 30 years experience at helping undiscovered artists establish themselves.

Ree, who specialises in modern pop and regularly sings in local pubs, enjoyed success with her first music video, a dance version of Elle King’s ‘Ex's & Oh's’ which has been watched thousands of times of YouTube.

Alison Davies, Headteacher, said, “The performing arts are very important to us as a school and it is wonderful to see one of our students succeeding in her chosen field. It is wonderful to see Ree developing her talent with expert help and I wish her all the best for the future.”
