René Marie is a very rare artist. A modern vocal icon, her unique artistry has been recognized with multiple domestic and international awards including two GRAMMY Award nominations for Best Jazz Vocal Album. A lyricist / composer / arranger / playwright / actress / educator / speaker / and social justice activist, René is an Americana roots artist with jazz improvisational chops. Influenced by her southern upbringing, she incorporates folk, R&B, country and classical elements into her music and approach, lending her a unique sound and style that have captivated audiences worldwide. Over a span of two decades, 11 recordings and countless festival and concert stage performances, René inspires people with her artistry, her life story and her ability to affirm the power of the human spirit. Her latest GRAMMY recording, Sound of Red (Motéma), celebrates her life story. René exclaims of her current concept, Pain + Wisdom = Beauty™:

An emotional equation colored and shaped
by solitude and shared experience.
We run from Pain. But running is futile.
Three projects: Pain, Wisdom, Beauty.
Exploring the essence of our humanity with
Pain and Wisdom as co-teachers, two sides
of the emotional coin.
Beauty shines a light on the path that brought us here.
Pain. Wisdom. Beauty.
Three integers in a musical journey reflecting
the sum of our experience.
