Born in Europe and raised in Africa, Reini has worked as a lawyer and corporate soldier in various international locations in each of which he also played out his passion of singer/song-writing. From earliest years he has loved the Cape of Storms and now fittingly lives in Simonstown. Founder of False Bay Folk and regular performer, he has recorded two albums, ‘Leave Your Light On’ and ‘Memories of Rain’. His anthology of lyrics and biographic anecdotes, ‘History Washes Away’, was self-published in 2016. Recurring subjects in his writing are – water, space (as in the Karoo), travel, equity and human fragility.
