Renee Dunaway, solo artist and front woman of Jetsetter, makes pop/rock tunes with infectious melodies, glamorous and seductive energy, and candid lyrics backed by euro-pop hooks and cinematic textures.

Biography

Renée is a renaissance girl, true to her name. She creates raw, no-holds-barred lyrics set to music that draws from pop, rock and trip-hop. Her 2007 debut album with her band, Jetsetter, was used in soundtracks for prime time dramas and reality TV shows on MTV, Oxygen and USA.

Renée currently plays live shows with new songs and Jetsetter repertoire, and does songwriting and vocal work for soundtrack spots. She heads back to the studio in fall 2009 for a solo EP and Jetsetter EP/LP.

Music has always been in Renée’s life. If she wasn’t listening to dad Dennis Dunaway (original bassist of the Alice Cooper Group) blast classic rock while she was dancing in mom Cindy Dunaway’s (rock costume designer of Alice Cooper and Pink Floyd fame) handmade dress-up wardrobe, she was probably corralling her sister Ché Monét into being back-up dancer in her homemade music video.

Lyrics

Save You

Written By: Renee Dunaway

Save You

Chatting with you
In the roadmaps of time
Nostalgic of you
In the folds of my mind
Remembering when
You were a voice on the line
Send me backwards to you
I just need to find you

THEY ALL TRIED TO SAVE YOU
BUT YOU KNOW THAT I WOULD HAVE
CUZ I’M THE ONLY ONE WHO KNEW THAT
YOU DON’T NEED RESCUED

Remembering when you said
I was your only friend
And when your stepfather came in
You had to pretend
You were sleeping in silence
That was your best defense
But I was there all the time
On the other line

You define the word “love” to me
No matter how much time falls between
I’ll be with you no matter where I am
I’ll be with you on the other end

Metropolis

Written By: Renee Dunaway

If I buy back my time
What won't I become?
Embedded divining rod
Autopilot me to Grand Central Station again
Food commissary carousel music plays
Plastic cup cocktail, I’m on my way again

I CRY IN PUBLIC
AND I CAN’T SEEM TO CARE
LOOK DOWN AS I WALK
LOOKS LIKE PARIS SIDEWALK
WHEN I LOOK UP IT’S A METROPOLIS
OF SKEWED HIRSCHFELD FACES
GAZES AS STONE AS THE ASPHALT

Spontaneity the serum of youth
Taunting suits ‘til its time to commute
Can I buy back the time you bought from me
Ten hours a day
And have nothing to say for it

What won’t I become
