Rén with the Mane
Brooklyn based artist Rén with the Mane is back with new track ‘On My Own’. Receiving plaudits from Nylon Magazine, Paste, Line of Best Fit, Kitsune, and more, Rén is no stranger to the blogosphere. Grooving tracks like Changes, 'Into the Unknown', Already Gone and Fool For You have been featured on numerous Spotify playlists such as New Music Friday, Indie Pop, A Shot of Indie, and also TV shows including MTV’s Teen Mom, and Girlfriends Guide to Divorce. Her newest single ‘On My Own’ was inspired by what Rén says was “a quarantine relationship which carried on too long because the need of companionship. It became hard to speak my truth - because this person became someone I truly cared about, but in the end I was sticking with them mostly because I was lonely. It was cathartic to write while I was trying to figure out what I was doing [in this relationship]“
In addition to being a prolific songwriter and artist, Rén is an intoxicating performer and has become somewhat of a figure around the streets of New York this past year. In a time the city was yearning for connection, she found herself singing with a brass band throughout Manhattan to offer her fellow New Yorkers a sense of camaraderie and joy. She also works as a Hair/Makeup Artist and Stylist, primarily working with other musicians to help bring out their best side. Rén says “When a client leaves feeling beautiful and confident and excited about the projects they’re working on- it fuels me. In my opinion the purpose of life is to have an impact on others so whether it’s making someone feel beautiful or having someone resonate w my music- both connections make my heart feel full”. She has worked with artists such as Regina Spektor, AJR Brothers, and St Lucia.
