In Fall of 2017 Rene made the career changing decision to stop playing cover tunes and focus on her original songs. To achieve her goal, she teamed up with Producer Chris Blackwell, to create her new sound with a “Power Trio” focused on Rene’s unique playing style. The result: Rene Russell & the Bottom End.
The new Single and Video were released on April 23, 2018 with the Premier show at The Windjammer on May 30,2018. With support from Artist Formula, and Symphonic Distribution, she plans to release 2 more singles over the next few months, as well as tour regionally, securing slots in key venues as well as fairs and festivals.
