‘It’s her ability to step inside the song and make the lyrics come alive that sets her apart’ The Arts Desk

“A brilliantly conceived package of Americana, focusing on folkloric material” The Wall Street Journal

“Electrifying and life-enhancing, René Marie draws
together jazz, soul, gospel and Rene2Americana to powerful effect. With her incredible range of vocal ability, emotional resonance and strong independent streak, she brings to life original songs, jazz standards and folk songs alike. Her music both celebrates and interrogates American culture and her position within it. With a snowballing career that began only when she was in her 40s, René Marie is an artist of rare honesty and commitment and one of today’s most individual voices.” American Routes
