I’ve got some big ideas in my head, guys.  Big.  HUGE. 

Ideas that I’m asking all my friends and fans to help me bring to life. This year for my birthday, please help me make some of my big dreams come true! 

 Here’s the concept: Most of you guys know me best for my cover tunes. Surprise, surprise! I want to release more! Here’s the angle though, this time we’ll be re-imagining tunes you already know and love though a modern lens!

 I want to have this EP out and in your hands by September. (September, guys! That’s so soon!) I also want to help tell the stories of these songs with more music videos. I had so much fun shooting my first music vid, “Sleepwalk”, last Fall. Storyboarding ideas, picking locations and concepts was an absolute dream come true. I can’t wait to do it again! This time, I’m aiming for bigger, cooler vids. Upbeat songs and haunting tracks alongside the visual aesthetics that make you feel like you’re there. 

 Fortunately, I already have access to a studio and a (did I mention, super hot?) producer. All of your donations pay for human musicians (not computers!), mixing, mastering, and awesome camera guys that will help bring this project to life. I’m following all my fans who donate $50 dollars or more!  

Recording dates start this month! Check back for updates! xo Renee 

Risks and challenges

The project is already in motion, I just need you to help me make it great. Not meeting our funding goal means that it'd take longer before you get to hear new tracks and see new music videos. I don't want to wait any longer to share new tracks with you all!
