‘Out Their Windows’ reflects the vastly different world we inhabited in 2020. An observation of life in a time of pandemic, Renee explores the conflict between keeping ourselves safe from the threats of the outside world and maintaining the connectedness we crave in order to thrive.
In particular, the song focuses on the plight of some of society’s most vulnerable: the elderly who have been kept safe, but carefully isolated, in residential care facilities.
Renee is a self-confessed nomad. Growing up in the leafy suburbs of Sydney, followed by a move to rural Japan post university provided her an insatiable desire to travel the world. With regular trips to South America, Europe and most recently northern China, she developed a strong resistance to settling permanently in one place.
Being a proud child of the 80’s, she has a particular fondness for the likes of Roxette, The Police, The Indigo Girls, INXS, Womack & Womack & George Michael. She dreams of one day creating a pop hit which combines the writing genius of David Bowie and the heart of Joan Armatrading.
These days, Renee is known for her smoky, soulful voice, deliciously ambient finger picking melodies, and at times honestly heartbreaking lyrics.
‘Renee’s songs have the beauty and deep emotional entanglement of the singer-songwriter genre, but to tie her down to that limited space would miss the pervasively expansive threads from which she weaves her wonderful music.’
