Bio

I am a "Yankee From Connetikit" who loves writing songs. I made my BIG move to Nashville in July, 2006 and became a member of NSAI in January, 2007. Currently, I am workin' on some fresh song ideas and will be cutting at least 3 demos in 2007.

Writing songs began for me in my senior year of highschool, which at the time of this writing was 19 years ago. I fell in love with a keyboard player from Upstate New York, and I guess it was my way of "having the music in common" with him. Well, anyway I fell out of love with him and in love with songwriting!

I'm afraid you won't find any fancy degrees in higher education like journalism or english degrees in my background, although I have taken the time to do my homework in order to hone my songwriting craft. I have studied such great books written by Sheila Davis, Jason Blume, Natelie Goldberg, Pat Pattison, Molly Ann Leikin, Pat and Pete Luboff and more.

My songs are meant to touch human emotions in an uplifting, sad, funny or romantic way. While many are written from my own heart and life experiences, many of my songs are derived from showing a genuine interest in what others are going through or have gone through. Because "irony" is a strong way to get a point across, I try to use it when appropriate in my lyrics without deviating from sincerity.

My goal is to one day share my songs with the world to make it a better place. I know this sounds cliche, but I really cannot think of a more straightforward way to say it.

I do not have a band because I am not a performer. Tho' I do play a bit of rhythme on acoustic guitar. I am not a good singer; a poor one at best, BUT I HAVE NOT LET THAT STOP ME!

I work for myself in a house cleaning business, which has blessed me with the opportunity to write while working. Whether it be while scrubbing a toilet (hey, come on now, it's a good, honest livin'!), a title, a line or an entire lyric presents itself, or while driving to my next customer's when a lyric and / or melody comes to mind. I ALWAYS carry a notepad, pen and my best friend; my microcassette recorder!

One day, I hope the world will hear my songs and say: "Wow, I've been there, that helped" or "That was one of the funniest songs I've heard in a long time" or "That song brought tears to my eyes" or "Darlin', come here and lets turn out the lights".

Thank you for your consideration and for listening!

Respectfully ~ Renee.

PS: Would be honored to collaborate with folks who perform Nashville Venues... if you or anyone you know would be interested, please let me know. Thanx, Renee
