In live endeavors, RENE and his illustrious ensemble create an emotional experience ~ balancing acoustic and electric instruments with the force of an overwhelming musical landscape custom designed for the uplifting of one's heart, mind, and soul. 'Emotion is an essential part of my music,' says RENE.

Few artists can paint a picture as articulate in it's representations to the original vision as RENE can with his compositions. One of his main ambitions as a composer is to establish himself in the film scoring industry, with the desired effect being similar to the feeling his live and recorded music fans take away from the RENE experience.

Sublime and enchanting melodies, inspiring passages, and multi cultural rhythms build the foundation for RENE's second full length CD.
