If we did an “Album of the Month” feature then this LP would definitely be last months winner. In fact this LP is so good we might just start and end it with this one!
Returning after a period of self reflection Renee Dion’s comeback album”Moonlight” is nothing short of stunning, seriously 15 tracks seems not enough when the music is this good. The back story from the press release below shines a light on her new direction and what were once preconceived, neo-soul notions of what the follow up to her previous albums “Rhapsody Inn” and “The City That Sleeps” would sound like.
Two years ago Renee Dion’s soulful sound could be heard on on music blogs across the web, on albums by alternative soul icons, and in clubs and festivals from her hometown, Columbus, Ohio, to New York City. And as her fans anticipated her third project, life came at her fast–she cut ties with her musical team, while concurrently bonding with a reclusive beat maker.
With the help of aforementioned reclusive beatmaker Jon Rogers, Renee has crafted a beautiful collection of music that sounds timeless, yet modern,weaving between soul, hip hop and electronica effortlessly. This one deserves worldwide attention.
Listen and support.
