Biography

Born to a well known Canadian gospel family Renee spent her youth surrounded by music. It was in her moms passing as a teenager, Renée found her passion in music and its pursuit. 

Although her family encouraged her pursuit of higher education, for which she received multiple degrees at a private university in the USA, music was always calling.

After securing a position as an adjunct professor, Renée started playing and writing again. Within that year her first EP "What I Need" was produced.

 

In 2011 she was commissioned by The Virginia School of the Arts to write their closing and graduation anthem  from which "Legacy" was created. 

As a writer, all her lyrics are born from a place of real and raw emotion, creating a true connection with her listeners.

Performing live for over a decade, with two (2) additional albums produced, 2020 has brought her back into the studio, producing "We Are One,” among many other tracks, in hopes of inspiring our world to rise like a phoenix from the ashes.
