Child Actress is Rena Nicole, musician/artist/female sound guy from Calgary, Canada. Rena has been an multi-instrumentalist performing with bands such as Pressure Kill Common Style, Manchild, Gold, Extra Happy Ghost, Modern Aquatics, The Shematomas, and Burnt Shrines over the past 13 years.
After the sudden death of her partner Rena spent a year writing whatever music instinctively came to mind with the resulting collection being a surprisingly colourful set of dreamy pop/post punk/rock songs with fewer dark undertones than one would expect of work done in grief. After producing the recordings with herself playing all instruments Child Actress is set to release these songs a first EP in the spring of 2016. Rena is currently writing and recording a full length album that takes the tones and themes which began to be developed in the first year of loss and grief and examines them more deeply under a much finer microscope. - https://www.facebook.com/childactressband/
