Bio

Rene Collins effortlessly weaves together the subjects of politics, spiritual progress, nature, and love into his uplifting songs. His unique polyrhythmic strumming style creates head-bopping grooves, with memorable hooks that linger in your head for weeks to come.
His musical style and lyrics have been compared to Ani De Franco, Michael Frenti, Ben Harper and Jack Johnson. He aspires to communicate the positive feelings of the early 60’s and 70’s, while addressing the pressing issues of the current times with clever, thought-provoking lyrics. Charismatic, charming and energetic, he woos the audience with his powerful vocals, poignant lyrics and down to earth manner. He has a powerful and captivating stage presence, thanks to his ten years plus professional theatre acting career in San Francisco and New York City.
Rene hails from San Francisco, and started playing piano at the age of ten. At fourteen, he started singing and acting and began focusing mostly on songwriting and singing leads throughout High School and College. His influences are Bob Marley, George Clinton, U2, Elton John, Ella Fitzgerald, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder, to name a few.
At heart, Rene is a singer/songwriter/mystic philosopher seeking to communicate ideas hidden below the surface of everyday living. Inspired by ancestral African spirituality and music, he seeks to emulate the idea that wisdom and humor is the best remedy in these times of stress and fast paced living. Rene currently lives in Brooklyn with his wife Chava, son Zukari, and two cats. He teaches music to children, and the Brazilian martial art capoiera.
