You won't find alt-country artist Renée Wahl on the beaten path. Unafraid to step into the unknown, she takes her cues from life itself and goes where fate, and music, leads her. Bringing the same fearless approach to her music, Renée Wahl has created a unique, richly layered, modern alt-country sound. It perfectly complements her personable performing style and makes her one of Nashville's most compelling emerging artists. In 2009, after years of playing in successful local indie-rock alt country bands in Philadelphia and Baltimore (and serving in the Air Force), Renée partnered with singer-songwriter Roger Prescott (leader of Trainwreck Ghost, and ex. member of The Texacala Jones Band, Walking Wounded, and The Pop!). Together they’ve created a body of songs that are edgy and cool with smart and engaging lyrics.
