"Balmy tropical indie rock for lovers and thinkers. Reyn's folk-rock forays are like summer anthems, loaded with good vibes and beach memories. Reyn is good at simmering bits of folk, rock, funk and day dream pop into a hushed beat." (Ottawa Citizen)

Biography

Front man Paul Sanchez sings about life, gathering fragmented but weighty thoughts along the way and squeezing them into a song. Other songs deal with his transitions. He moved around Southern Ontario and the Untied States before settling in Ottawa with his family.

While his heart is open to creating that pure, soulful sound, as a player, Sanchez is fixated on his instrument. He says “the guitar is like a samurai sword. I try to get all I can out of it to unlock its secrets.”

Reyn was hired in 2005 to compose and produce music for a video at CIMS (Carleton Immersive Media Systems). Reyn also composed music for a video project for Ottawa University.

Lyrics

A Beautiful Sadness

Written By: Paul Sanchez

A Beautiful Sadness

The story of life is like a river, come and gone
We can look back to the lives we have seen growing
The story of life brings tears to my eyes
It’s a story of hello and goodbye

You’ll find with the passing of time, things don’t seem the same
They come and go, that’s the way life unfolds

This world keeps changing but I stay the same
Well I ain’t much for change
A beautiful sadness, when you realize the pain

The story of life is the story about change, its got happiness sadness and fear
The story of life is who we are, it’s what everyone shares
From our beginnings and to our ends, a beautiful sadness lies within

You’ll find with the passing of time, things don’t seem the same
They come and go, that’s the way life unfolds

This world keeps changing but I stay the same
Well I ain’t much for change
A beautiful sadness, when you realize the pain
