Music Recs is an attempt at regular Friday content, the sharing of good music that I found this week, and honestly, just an excuse to promote my favourite old/new bands.
Ren – Jenny’s Tale
Sometimes, all you need is a guitar, a story, and ungodly talent. Singer-songwriter Ren does well to prove it, telling the tragic tale of Jenny on the streets of Brighton with his striking spoken word, flair for theatrical lyric, and a touch of reggae influence.
Part murder ballad and part alternative anthem, his infectiously rhythmic composition bursts with powerful emotion and staying power. This is no one-off either; there is much devastating beauty in his other personal works. Ren is one to watch.
