Discovery: Renée Loren

Renée Loren is a British singer songwriter and pianist whose soulful and astute new track Young And Beautiful caught my ear.

By Graeme Smith

Young and Beautiful is about being with the wrong person. It’s a topic that often covered in music but Renée’s take on it felt fresh to me. “You know I’m young and beautiful and can wait for you” felt particularly insightful. When we’re young we put off happiness, expecting it to come down the road.

But it’s not just the songwriting that impressed me but Renée’s powerful and soulful voice which forms the centrepiece of the song, accompanied only by a simple piano melody. It’s a great track from a young Londoner who clearly has a bright career ahead of her. Check out Young and Beautiful below.
