Piano-driven indie singer-songwriter, Ren Massie, is a small town Texas native now based in Minneapolis, MN. She released her self-titled debut EP in August 2020. Ren’s music is a contemplative type of folk rock, though you will find gems that nod to jazz, pop, and even a bit of the theatrical. This unique blend of genres is accentuated by Ren’s sweet and pure soprano vocals. 

New tunes released so far in 2021 include a cover of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and an original song called “Pilgrim’s Hymn”.

“Pilgrim’s Hymn” is the first single to be released from Ren’s upcoming album titled “The Impressions Album” - to be released in November 2021. This album will include 7 songs total, all of which will be released as singles and then compiled onto the album.

Each song from the project started out as a snapshot in time. Like when you see something really striking that just kind of sticks. Some songs are poetic and some are more story based. Some are full productions with a band, and others will just be vocals, piano, and cello. Some are written by Ren and others are co-written with her husband, Eric.

There will be a song release every 3 to 4 weeks until the album comes out this November.

Thanks for joining the journey!
