With the release of her 2019 album ‘EMPOWER’, award-winning Indigenous artist, Renée Lamoureux, is eager to share her brand new material to the world. With her pop-country sound and a genre she likes to describe as music that motivates, Renée possesses a voice ranging from soulfully powerful to sweet and gentle.
Born and raised to a French speaking Metis family in a small town south of Winnipeg, Renée began to explore music taking piano lessons at six years old and discovering her love of singing after her parents bought her a microphone. One day in 5th grade, her teacher assigned the class to write and record a song and perform it to their parents. That day Renée found her love of writing.
As a performing artist and a singer/songwriter, Renée has been privileged to travel across the world doing what she loves- sharing her music. With her former band ‘Keith and Renee’, the duo released six albums, touring across North America over a decade- highlights including touring with major artists such as Jann Arden, Dean Brody, Dallas Smith. Renée was fortunate to contribute her philanthropy work with WE Charity (Free The Children) during a three year span, performing WE Day and in countless schools across Canada- traveling to countries in Africa and Dubai. Her songs have been placed on an AT&T commercial, Degrassi The Next Generation and Degrassi Goes Hollywood.
Renée’s previous solo album ‘Dare to be You’ garnered her the winning award for Best Female Artist in 2016 at the Manitoba Music Awards, as well as several nominations. The album was up for two Indigenous Music Awards two consecutive years in a row. Her single ‘Two Step’ hit at #1 on the Indigenous Music Countdown.
Renée was recently invited to perform in Australia representing Indigenous Artists of Canada as she launched her latest album EMPOWER.
Renée has always been grateful to be able to make music for a living- her greatest passion. She’s excited to take the stage this fall; connecting to her audience, telling her story and sharing her journey.
