Morgan Leet meets Reeny Smith

Lawrencetown Beach, Nova Scotia 

Since finding her passion for music in high school, Reeny Smith has awed audiences all throughout her home province of Nova Scotia and beyond. Her powerful voice and unrelenting positive messaging have solidified her as one of the most exciting artists in Canada. In 2015 Reeny released her first EP, I Am Reeny, and has gone on to win Music Nova Scotia’s African Nova Scotian Artist of the Year Award from 2015-2018, as well as a pair of East Coast Music Awards in 2019, and Best R&B Artist award in The Coast’s Best of Halifax Awards (2017 & 2018). Her music has been featured in multiple television shows, including Diggstown and Workin' Moms, and she is the voice of Tourism Nova Scotia's newest spot.

[EDIT]ION’s Morgan Leet met with Reeny to discuss her newest single “Love Trumps Money”.

Morgan Leet: What was it like breaking through as an artist in Nova Scotia?
Reeny Smith: I thought it was great. I'm a person who's very introverted and who likes privacy and just flying under the radar, so it was definitely something that I had to get used to, but it's been great! I get to go out and represent my family and my community and really show them in a positive light. So it's something that I have a lot of pride for and I'm just happy that people appreciate my talent and that they've given me this opportunity.

Morgan Leet: Congratulations on your newest single! What inspired the name for “Love Trump's Money”?  
Reeny Smith:
It was definitely written from a place of prioritization, you know? What do we prioritize in life? A lot of people work hard every day. I'm guilty of it myself and we just focus on what material things we can have, and sometimes we confuse that with bringing us happiness, but really it just brings us temporary joy and some material thing that we just purchased. I think for me personally the thing that's giving me constant joy is knowing that I have the love of my family, and just love itself was the thing that was keeping me in a constant place of happiness. I mean I love to buy things, so I've seen it from both sides and it just came from a place of what really mattered the most in my life for me, and I've taken love and family and friendship over anything. So that's pretty much where the song comes from.
Morgan Leet:
And was this a recent realization that you had, or was this always kind of a motto for how you lived your life?  
Reeny Smith: I would say it was recent. I really am a very materialistic person in terms of, if I see it, I want it, I gotta have it right away. Also, I am a person who wants to have the latest and greatest. So it's always been a constant battle for me to really prioritize what's important and how hard am I working right now, and what things I am putting on the back burner. So it did come to a point where it was like, okay, what's actually important? Where else can I invest my time? You just realize that after a while, especially this year with the whole quarantine situation, what's the most important thing. And the thing that's gotten me through this tough time was family and friends.

Morgan Leet: And I feel like that's a theme throughout a lot of your music, that positivity.  
Reeny Smith: Absolutely, yeah! I try to be as optimistic and positive as I can be. It helps me maintain my happiness and my sanity!

Morgan Leet: So after winning multiple awards and finding success, what are you most proud of in your career as an artist?
Reeny Smith: That's tough. For me I appreciate all the awards, you know, it's validation for me that all of my hard work has been recognized and people appreciate it. So I never look at any award I've gotten and made light of it. But I tell people this all the time: I really don't do this for any type of accolades or anything. It’s something I enjoy doing, it makes me happy to do it. I feel like if I wasn't doing it I wouldn't be in a good place, so I'm just happy that I get out and I can create my own joy and have people sharing it. And I think that's what I'm most proud of. I just want to make good music and make people feel good.  

Morgan Leet: What's coming next for you? I know, obviously, you aren't performing live right now, but is there anything else coming up?
Reeny Smith: Yeah, but the plan is if we can't come together, then I can come to where you are. So pretty much a lot of releases next year, a lot more music coming and virtual stuff. I know in the Atlantic Bubble there are some things happening, so there's few a shows coming up in the new year. And hopefully, you know, if we can control this pandemic a little bit more, we can get back to normal a little bit and we can stretch out further.

The Best Places to Visit This Autumn on Nova Scotia's
Majestic South Shore

by Morgan Leet
In the South Shore of Nova Scotia, there is a photo opportunity around every corner. Within every town, charm is at the very core. My favorite time of the year to visit these picturesque, and often historical, towns is in the fall. On a beautiful fall day, with the sun shining on the always visible ocean and the colorful leaves around you, there is simply no better place to be.

If you’re traveling to Nova Scotia from New Brunswick, the best way to get there is by way of Bay Ferries' beautiful Fundy Rose Ferry. It will take you right from the historic port of Saint John, New Brunswick to Digby, Nova Scotia, making the trip a memorable one on the magnificent boat with stunning decor, a fully stocked bar, delicious snacks and spectacularly friendly staff!

Set in the picturesque town of Liverpool, Nova Scotia, Main & Mersey Home Store has a majestic decor and design that sets it apart. Opened by Shani Beadle and her Swedish husband, Andreas Arnmar, after they moved here from London, England, the store provides gorgeous fabrics and home decor accessories, as well as delicious coffee! 

One of the oldest theatres in Canada, run by some of the most delightful people you will ever meet, is the Chester Playhouse! Its surrounding town is a destination on its own, with charming shops lining the streets. For the past 80 years, it has been a place to gather, laugh, sing, and reflect, and will not disappoint.

While in Chester, why not take some time to relax at Sensea Nordic Spa? As the first Nordic Spa in Nova Scotia, it offers a unique relaxation experience that stimulates all of your senses. The Thermal & Hydro Therapy takes you from steaming hot saunas and hot baths to plunging into ice-cold waterfalls, showers, and fountains! Although it sounds intimidating, it is sure to rejuvenate and relax you, and you can end it all with one of their massage or spa treatments.

The Quarterdeck is a resort that needs no introduction. The world-class getaway is known far and wide for its impeccable service, impressive views, and unique design by architect Nicholas Fudge. The resort offers an outdoor hot tub, a private cinema, and a gym, along with one of the best restaurants in the province, making it the perfect destination all year long.

If you’re looking to raise a toast to the shipbuilding heritage of the South Shore, make sure to visit Shipwright Brewing Company in Lunenburg. The beer is sure to impress and the small colourful town and its intriguing history as a UNESCO World Heritage site, will wow anyone who visits.

If you’re in for another piece of history, Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse was built in 1915 in the quaint fishing village surrounding it. You can explore the picturesque village, watching as the forceful waves break along the rocks, making sure you keep a safe distance. Although the rough waters below can be dangerous, their power paired with the beauty of the lighthouse makes for an incredible scene that you won’t soon forget.

Together We Give

This year has been full of challenges, but through it all, New Brunswick has persevered. Our community inspired us through their generosity, and the kindness felt at the Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation when our health-care workers needed it most was outstanding. Together we raised more than $8.8 million, allowing for the purchase of critical equipment, significantly impacting the care provided in response to the pandemic, and ensuring that our health-care system thrives for years to come.
“I’m grateful for the donations to the New Brunswick COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund.  It helped purchase equipment that is already giving caregivers more options in saving lives for patients with lung and heart issues,” says Jean-François Légaré, Clinical Head of Cardiac Surgery, New Brunswick Heart Centre.
This year more than ever, your donations transformed lives for New Brunswickers. Unleash your power this #GivingTuesday and join the movement dedicated to giving back.
Together we inspire.
The Death of Vivek Oji
by Akwaeke Emezi
Penguin Random House | 256 pages | Fiction 
Available now

Review by Mary Barlow
One of this year's most acclaimed novels does not disappoint. Set in a small town in Nigeria, the story opens with the death of Vivek Oji, an event that serves as a maypole around which many strands of the narrative unfold. It is not only Vivek’s life story but also the story of those who loved him, told from multiple perspectives including Vivek’s. Vivek’s life is a mysterious one; born into a loving family, he always knew he was different. Being true to his authentic self was a source of constant anxiety, forcing him to withdraw into himself and push others away. His brotherly bond with his cousin, Osita, was a source of love and support but also pain. Touching on issues of mental illness, gender-role identity and familial love, this novel is universally relevant. A must-read if you are looking for a perspective-shifting book that will stay with you long after you set it down.

Miramichi, New Brunswick-based entrepreneur Tessa Clancy has found a unique market as a second-generation soap maker that’s filled with tasty looking handmade products. Tessa’s passion and creativity are clear throughout her lively brand, putting a smile on the faces of anyone who uses her products. All boasting rave reviews, you can now find her soaps, lotions, bath bombs, and scrubs in 32 retailers across New Brunswick, local farmers markets, or online.
The sugary sweet empire started small though. Tessa exclusively tells [EDIT]ION: "I first found my passion for soap making at the moment I decided to start creating. I knew it was something I would enjoy as a hobby, but I didn’t realize how many designs were available to try! I had always been attracted to delicious bakery scents, so I decided to experiment with dessert-themed soaps. I first started making soap in 2014 and started selling at small farmers’ markets in town.”
Since the beginning, she has felt supported by fellow New Brunswickers, saying that “owning a small business in New Brunswick is great. Locals really seem to see the value in shopping small, local, and independent.” From her Cinnamon Sticky Bun Bath Bomb or Blueberry Cheesecake Sugar Scrub to her Pumpkin Marshmallow Bubble Bar, the unique scents are sure to make you relax, and maybe a little bit hungry too!

Dear New Brunswickers,
This year has been like no other before it. Lock-down, social distancing, unprecedented and new normal: all expressions that have entered our collective lexicon and, for many of us, had a very real meaning and impact on our lives and livelihoods.

The inevitable downturn of the tourism industry has been a hard-fought battle. But even for those hard-working operators, there have been moments of grace, grit, and beauty. And they’re worth recognizing.

A special thank you to the industry innovators who imagined and offered new products, and New Brunswickers who stepped up and showed their support for the industry and their province.

We simply couldn’t have gotten through without you.

And we’re not through it yet. As we move into the winter months, our entrepreneurs are gearing up to offer classically Canadian experiences. Get ready for weekends spent skiing the slopes, cozying up in premium accommodations, adventuring outdoors, getting festive in the city, and celebrating all that New Brunswick has to offer this season.

Let’s keep going.

All of cuisine has evolved in the name of nostalgia. Cooking is a shamelessly sentimental trade. I guess, in that way, I am perfectly suited to it. I crave those pangs of pain with every change of season; whatever smells, sounds and sights that put me somewhere I can never be again. That sense of longing is the driving force behind everything I've ever done. It's the well from which each song, poem, short story and menu item springs. There are chefs who specialize in evolving our cuisine, trying new things, experimenting with new techniques, but even those chefs are consistently toying with nostalgia to create new memorable experiences. I do believe in innovation, and indeed we do have to move tradition to keep it, but I think I am more suited to something a little simpler. Maybe I'm supposed to help make sure we don't get completely off track in our foodways. Maybe it's already too late for that. 

Either way, I've opened a restaurant. It's the most difficult thing I've ever done, but I can't shake this sense that I'm supposed to be doing it. Or at least that it's good that I'm doing it. I miss my grandmothers. I miss them every day. Ethel & Mary's is largely a focused expression of that feeling. But it's also the result of years and years of becoming more and more enamoured with the restaurant industry. A wide array of farmers, cooks, dishwashers, servers, purveyors, truck drivers and generally speaking, people who are easy to respect and admire. We're shooting for somewhat refined nostalgia. A custodial effort of celebrating our food memories and telling our stories through food. Basically we're making folk art.

When the restaurant finally opened following months of false starts, bad news, calculated risks, humbling community support, endless learning and unbelievable hard work, there was a heavy feeling of accomplishment hidden beneath each long day. It was hard to see it after the 110th hour at the end of the week, but it was there. Mercifully, our long road of pop up events and farmers markets saw us open to what felt like a neighborhood celebration. Just as we were about to increase our staff and attempt to find our footing, we were hit with the news that COVID-19 would likely close our doors. It was a test of leadership, and I'm not sure how well I fared. In a video we posted online to address the situation, I described us as being 'pretty vulnerable to it,' which was an understatement. 

Our restaurant has done pretty much everything the hard way. This is not a shop built on savings, investment, credit or inheritance. We were able to open because of the supportive community we are in, a few good city programs, and YouTube tutorials. I wasn't about to pay someone else to hang drywall on our budget. We opened pretty close to the wire, and we badly needed to have a very good summer to survive. When we all learned how serious the situation really was, it felt like all of our hard work had been for nothing. When we sat down to discuss strategy, I wasn't sure where to start. 

Thankfully, I am surrounded by incredible people, without whom there is no chance the restaurant would still exist. The people I have been blessed with as staff confronted this situation with grace, and it was with their support, hard work and ideas that we marched forward. The idea of a temporary closure was unfortunately impossible for us, so we chopped down our staff and hours, and removed our tables. We began to rethink our business model. Our community reached out to us and supported us as best they could. My family came together to raise money for us amongst themselves. We all sacrificed greatly, the entire E&M family, to keep the business on life support long enough to evolve within the circumstance. This effort is, of course, ongoing. 

Over the course of this past summer, we came together as a team and moved forward with new ideas. We continued to work with a focus on our small business community. That community is in every way essential to life in Saint John. We do not view them as competition. Ethel & Mary's was always designed to complement the area of Uptown Saint John. There are so many people from so many backgrounds working to grow and maintain the amazing culture here, and we are extremely proud to be a part of it. Small businesses have supported each other beautifully in this situation through collaboration, public support and patronage. 

Our customers have repeatedly brought us to tears with their support. It would have been reasonable to expect people to stop going out to eat, but they made sure to come support us when they could. Saint John is a weird little place. When Stompin' Tom wrote 'Saint John Blues' he described it using a conversation between a man and a pigeon about loneliness, and for us this rings true of the experience. This city is the odd conversation you have with a stranger in the burial ground. It created Ethel & Mary's and it inspires us every day. We know we are lucky to be a part of this city. We are not a business built on the quest for profit. Everyone is involved because they care about what we are doing and how we are doing it, and I believe that passion exists in the hearts and minds of our patrons as well. That passion has saved our business.

We have also been very lucky in several ways. The strategy of growing the business step by step has also saved us. We started with pop ups, and worked our way into a few farmers markets. We also lucked into a feature as food columnist for Information Morning with Julia Wright on CBC, which was a delight and an honor. As the reputation appeared to grow and the concept seemed to come together, it appeared that perhaps the best way to continue was to find a very small space, and give it a go as a lunch spot with limited seats. If I'd gone for my end goal and tried to open a place two or three times our size, we would not have made it this far. Our overhead is just low enough for us to scrape by if we work very, very hard. If we hadn't been able to barely qualify for the wage subsidy, even our size and the sacrifices of our team would not have been enough.
I believe that restrictive circumstances are a great conduit to creativity. Endless possibility can cripple the process. Once you've settled on some parameters, as long as you have the technique, your creativity is free. These last three years I've been obsessively filling in the gaps in my own culinary education in an attempt to master the technique enough to grapple with the circumstance. The more I learn, the more I feel that I don't know anything, but that's good.
If we can't have tables, we need to embrace take out. What works best in a take out container? Can we accommodate restrictive diets in a space this size when everything has to travel before it's eaten? What can we sell from inside a freezer that is worth buying? If we're going to make our own ricotta, what use can we find for the leftover whey to prevent it from being wasted? How can we get new people excited about dining with us without being able to pay for marketing? Thankfully this is a staff of creative, intelligent and thoughtful people and answering these questions has actually been pretty enjoyable.

Lately we've been booking private dinners in the restaurant, which is something we've always wanted to do. Circumstance has altered our original plan, and resulted in something we call the 'Bubble Bistro,' wherein folks within a bubble can come in to dine on a personalized menu. It allows us to be a bit more creative and to interact with our customers in a more relaxed atmosphere than the takeout counter. It's a breath of fresh air.
The restaurant business, as you've no doubt heard, is a tough one at the best of times. Restaurant food is artificially inexpensive to accommodate a broken agricultural system and this has further exacerbated the industry's issues with low pay, long hours and impossible expectations. To survive while purchasing responsibly as a food business feels impossible, and it's difficult not to feel crushed under the weight of it. I believe in this industry, and I believe it has an inherently redemptive quality. Who knows where I would be if Al hadn't gotten me that dishwashing job at O'Carroll's in 2009. Ultimately, you have to work your ass off, but you can do it. Or as we like to say in the shop, don't lose your nerve.

Nico Manos of Lawrencetown Surf Co. on Making Waves in Nova Scotia
by Jennifer Wood
Photography: Maia Lapierre
Situated in the quaint community of Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia (20 km east of Halifax) is the newly established Lawrencetown Surf Co. Owned and operated by husband and wife team and avid surfers, Nico and Jill Manos, the surf shop sells everything one would need to surf: surfboards, wetsuits, leashes and fins. They also sell their branded tees and hoodies. Adding a creative element to their operation, Lawrencetown Surf Co. sells handcrafted, custom surfboards. The pair have an input in their design, and they are built on-site by Chris Mathers of Black Tuna Surfboards.

“The surf shop was a shared dream of ours for many years, but it just came together this spring,” Nico tells [EDIT]ION. Nico and Jill were both born and raised in Nova Scotia and are happy to have established their home and passion project in Lawrencetown. “Since opening we haven’t been able to keep up with demand. Many don’t know that our surfboards are all shaped by hand. It’s an incredible process to see in action. You can see part of the process right in our shop.”
While many might picture surfing happening in four-season warm climates, Nova Scotia and Lawrencetown in particular has been widely known within the surfing community as a great spot to ride the waves; the surf scene in the province has a well-established community attracting many.
“You would be hard-pressed to find a stereotypical surfer in Lawrencetown. Doctors, plumbers, and artists that range in age from five to 65 are part of the community here. In the summer you will find tourists from other provinces giving it a try for the first time, and during well forecasted swell events you will occasionally see accomplished surfers from Hawaii, California and other surfing meccas,” adds Nico. “There are fantastic waves right here in Nova Scotia where surfing is a four-season sport. It really comes down to a surfer's passion for the sport, and obviously…  having the right wetsuit.”

Sister Bakery to Glen’s Village Square Bake Shop Opens
By Jennifer Wood
A mere seven weeks ago, the Saint John Bakery opened their glass doors and they have been met with a ton of praise and support. The new bakery creates everything from scratch, and it’s obvious with every bite. They offer the most delicious croissants, daily breads, donuts, focaccia, cinnamon buns, pies, cakes, cookies, pasties and so much more. Lineups are often a part of the experience (and anticipation) of a stop at the bakery, where the staff are warm, friendly and eager to impress.    

For nearly fifty years Grand Bay’s Glen’s Village Square Bake Shop was owned and operated by Glen Cosman. Four years ago, Carolyn and Terry Howe purchased it and have been offering the same recipes ever since. The bakery has inspired such a loyal following and generated such a name for itself that their son Stuart Howe decided to open a sister shop in Saint John. The bakery is now ramping up their business to offer their items to restaurants.

"The first two weeks were so busy that we couldn’t stop to think or take a breath,” Howe tells [EDIT]ION. “We have been met with such amazing support. We are having so much fun, in a happy atmosphere. I hope our customers feel that when they come to see us.”

Halifax rockers Dali Van Gogh are blowing our minds with their innovative new single release of “Boneyard”. The song is an instalment in The Testimony, a mixed medium story that they are telling through music and a digital novel. The story is unveiled in sections every Friday, a new and exciting concept being brought to life. Through various media strategies, the band manages to engage the audience and put everyone on the edge of their seat waiting for the conclusion of the cryptic messages. Band member Johnny Moore describes the story “unfolding slowly, which gives people something to look forward to, as well as eventually to look back on as a finished project when we eventually reach the end,” comparing it to “long-form art similar to a regular YouTube series.”
Together the band — Isaac Kent, John Scotto, Johnny Moore, Rachelle Moreau, and Lance Hicks — has received international radio play and charting status, with over 500,000 streams across platforms and was named as a semi-finalist in the SOCAN Canadian Songwriting Competition. They have now released a total of five records, Verbal Warning (2010), Mask Identity (2012), Wild Blue City (2012), From Ashes (2017), and Under Her Spell (2019).
“Boneyard” and The Testimony are available now.

Part of the heart and soul of Dartmouth is the newly created R&B Kitchen, a family-run operation whose presence is defined by their shared love of R&B music and well… soul food and Jamaican fare. Some of their most popular dishes include oxtail with mac and cheese, chicken and waffles, chicken and shrimp rosé pasta and more.
Nevell Provo runs the family business with his girlfriend and head chef, Raemiah Dorrington and other family members. They offer a single menu item that changes daily. This is part of the charm and mystery behind the restaurant’s concept. Nevell likens it to his childhood memories and wondering what his mother would be making for dinner that night.
R&B Kitchen opened their doors in February and had established a predictable, growing momentum concept when the pandemic swept through. To combat the downturn, they teamed up with delivery drivers and doubled down on their messaging through social media channels. Unlike many establishments, the restaurant grew their business during those first difficult months.
“We had and continue to have a ton of support from the community. Particularly during the lockdown, people were looking for homecooked, delicious meals. We were thrilled to give our customers something to look forward to,” Nevell tells [EDIT]ION.
In the early days, the team was serving twenty people daily. In just a few short months, their business has grown by more than seven-fold. They now serve upwards of 150 delicious plates per day. They are happy to offer small and mid-sized catering, serving parties, meetings, and corporate events. Be sure to check out their social media pages daily to find out what Nevell and his team will be serving up.
