Francesco Renna was born in Avellino, a small town near Naples in the South of Italy, on January 5, 1987, and began playing guitar and harmonica at age 14, when he fell in love with his uncle’s Edoardo Bennato records.
He started forming rock blues bands in high school, playing the repertoire of Eric Clapton and his own compositions.
In 2005 he moved to Bologna. During his time there, Renna got totally involved with Acoustic Blues music. During his spare time, he played the clubs and street corners of Campania and Emilia Romagna.
In 2010 Renna came back to his hometown, where he started a good live activity and produced his first solo album Appunti dal blu. The CD came out in September 2011.
Renna followed it up with Guidami Eshu – Live at Sound Design in July 2013, a record that began to focus his style towards songwriting. In late 2013 he moved to Australia for one year, where he started playing a few shows in some clubs and street corners of Perth and Fremantle. There he duet with Mike de Velta and recorded some guitar tracks for Alfredo Malabello’s album Reflections.
The very first Renna’s single, a rearrangement of the previous album’s title track Guidami Eshu, was released January 2016, three years after his last publication. This song was chosen by the need to create a music video with an intense and meaningful story, intended to represent Renna’s musical journey.
Renna’s latest work is titled Stories, a collection of his best songs, published in February 2017.
