"Reina Collins brings a lifetime of living and loving to her big voiced, big hearted performance. Whether fronting a down home ensemble or strutting it up with her big rock act, Collins evokes comparisons to a charismatic chorus of brethren.
From the edgy humanity of Patti Smith to the cool western suave of Chris Isaak to the introspective songwriting of Carole King, Collins' talent is deep and broad enough to recall all of these, while laying claim to a sound that is uniquely her own."
Roots rock singer songwriter Reina Collins is back in Tampa Bay after 20 years in the Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountains. Her voice has been described as warm as the color of deeply polished wood and smooth and fiery at the same time - like top shelf tequila. Reina sings of nature, family, love and lust on Florida Girl, her fifth album. Supported by St. Pete's Funky Seeds, Reina rollicks a danceable positive vibe festivarian-style.
