Remy Shand (born in 1978 in Winnipeg, Manitoba) is a Canadian R&B/soul singer, who released his debut album, The Way I Feel, on Motown Records in 2002.
= Remy Shand was born in 1978 to Doug Shand and Lana shand. His father was of Scottish/English descent and his mother was of Italian descent. Since the age of 12, Remy Shand had learned to play the guitar and acoustic bass. At a young age while most people his age during the 1980s and 1990s were influenced by early hip hop and pop music, his father was into soul. Shand says that instead his father influenced and exposed Shand into R&B/soul such as Steely Dan, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Herbie Hancock, Isley Brothers and Stevie Wonder.
During his home schooling in Winnipeg he had barged and searched for his parentâ€™s R&B, blues and soul albums, spending a lot of time in his basement sampling old retro music. Shand's funk sense of music typically made him an outcast from outsiders who did not share his passion. The soul styling music of Remy Shand is considered and labeled by some as neo soul. His parents had encouraged him to earn his GED, and to work on his music just as a project.
