Rene Marie I have never forgotten the early lessons learned about the power of music, she says. Today, I try to imbue that feeling of emotion into every song I write and every song I sing every time. I am very happy to be alive today, doing the things I love to do singing, composing, writing, teaching and arranging. ~ Rene MarieIn a span of two decades, 11 recordings and countless stage performances, vocalist Ren Marie has cemented her reputation as not only a singer but also a composer, arranger, theatrical performer and teacher. Guided and tempered by powerful life lessons and rooted in jazz traditions laid down by Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington and other leading ladies of past generations, she borrows various elements of folk, R&B and even classical and country to create a captivating hybrid style. Her body of work is musical, but its more than just music. Its an exploration of the bright and dark corners of the human experience, and an affirmation of the power of the human spirit.I wanted to make a record that people could go back to again and again to excavate their emotions, says Ren. We cover things over every day. We have to in order to move through the day and move through our lives. We cant always afford to be vulnerable to things like pain, loss, confusion, hurt and frustration. I want this record to provide some kind of architecture to provide support in those moments when our emotions are not necessarily happy ones.Perhaps more than most artists, Ren understands musics capacity to heal and inspire. Not only has she herself been the beneficiary of it, but she has made every effort along the way to extend those same benefits to others.Visit WebsiteWatch Video Fri, November 1 8PM / $35 Get Tickets*Please note:1.
