"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." - Graeme Woller - producer - In The World
Indie Folk artist Renée Millner’s transcendent voice returns with the release of her second EP next month 'In The World'. The singer songwriter is already known for unapologetically raw lyrics set to exquisite melodies, delivered in a captivating, smokey soul-folk vocal style. ‘In the World’ is a uniquely arresting collection of reflections on the places Renée has been since her last release in 2016.
It’s Renee's vulnerability that makes her songs so relatable. However deeply personal they are, they all touch on themes that are universal and inescapable. Who hasn’t struggled with doubt, and the search for meaning? Who hasn’t felt displaced, or wondered if they’re going in the right direction – or going anywhere at all?
October & November 2018 will see Renée touring 5 major New Zealand centres, to celebrate the album’s release – along with music video for the title track, ‘In The World’. Recorded and produced by acclaimed former Into The East musician Graeme Woller, with support from New Zealand’s Creative Community Funding Scheme, ‘In The World’ explores transition, and the fragility of human relationships.
Renée is a self-confessed nomad: Sydney-born and raised, she also lived in Melbourne, rural NSW and a Japanese backwater before moving to New Plymouth. Along the way were solo travel adventures, the first through rugged Bolivian mountain ranges in 2008. It was there she found her one constant traveling companion: the beloved acoustic guitar that also features heavily throughout the album.
