Description

GRAMMY nominated René Marie takes us to that space on Sound of Red, her first album of all-original material. Set for release via Motema / MustHaveJazz / Membran, the album's 11 songs - some of them autobiographical - provide glimpses of the many small but profound turning points that are a part of an individual life. René's clever songcraft and sensual vocal delivery make those personal moments not only meaningful but enlightening to a broad audience.

Sound of Red - the intensely personal and sometimes difficult internal score that plays out in each of our hearts as we make our way along our journey - is something worth listening to. Says René: "I wrote these songs to create a safe place for people to tune in to their emotions and perhaps deal with them in a way that they might not be able to do otherwise. Maybe it'll make them call whoever they're estranged from. Maybe it'll make them more determined to do the right thing. I don't know, but that's what I'm hoping for. I just want people to be touched."

The album features her 'Experiment in Truth' ensemble with select horn arrangements by Etienne Charles, and a brilliant guitar feature from Brazilian legend Romero Lubambo.
