“Through my own mental health struggles, I’ve learned a lot about using my own imagination as a positive force for my life. I’ve had to change the way I think to push through the barriers of low self worth to even make this album. Each song is a reminder to myself for how to keep healthy in my mind; whether it be my self-talk, rest, letting go of fear or staying connected to friends.”
Produced by Feranmi Oguns (Jake Isaac, Josh Record) and Bastian Testori from OL Music, IMAGINE is a departure from her soul-jazz offering The Lotusbloom EP (2014). The album begins with 'Old Friend', the catchy, emotive first single and riff driven second single 'Let Go', “an anthem for living in the
moment” (poprazzi.com). ‘The Return’ and ‘Troubles’ encompass the gritty city-life sounds that breathe new life to Jules’ natural ear for melody and story, with ‘Epiphany’ the only love song in the album, a fresh, soulful 6/8 ballad. It ends with an emotionally raw vocal/piano track ‘Remember’, inspired by poet Maya Angelou, co-written with Bianca Rose.
“A record like this one doused with intent, reflection & ardor separates Rendell from other musical creatives.”(Ikonic Music)
