Hello Renita! It’s a pleasure to chat with you. How are you and your bandmates at Fate Will Come doing?
I am super busy as we are planning the release of our first E.P “Heavy Heart” and first single “Charger” from the E.P . I am keeping a low profile in Canada working at home everyday on songs . My band partners are all in the US so they are staying safe also working on new songs for the band every day and getting ready to vote in the upcoming US election, Covid has made me stay at home as much as possible, making music with “Fate Will Come” keeps me sane and happy)

Thank you for playing Renita! Have you ever been treated in a sexist manner?
Great question. Yes, when I was growing up and in my previous band. My dad was very old fashioned and there was a different set of rules for women In my family. That is part of the reason why I pursued music, I write empowering lyrics and use my voice in both soft and aggressive ways. Being involved in music and creating songs makes me feel strong! It is a sad thing that in the year 2020 women still face sexism at work and in life situations.
How would you face sexism and what advice would you give to younger people who face discrimination of any kind?
I face sexism with my songwriting , that’s where some of my songs come from like “Bitch” and D.N.A … Sarcasm can be a great tool in songwriting to get your message across. I have a very short fuse to be treated badly! If you face discrimination ,stand up for yourself, go to someone you can trust to help with the situation, find a creative way to vent it, Music, art, blogs, Sing aggressive songs!!!
What is your favourite music-related memory that you have?
I have beautiful memories of singing with my grandma . She loved music and was always singing .Music has always been a big part of my life and always will be!
Thank you for the interview Renita! It has been a pleasure. Good luck for yourself and your band in all your future projects.
