Continuing focus on the ‘Spencer Street’ single ahead of further new studio material through 2019, Ren releases a bootleg version of the single, Live at the iconic Barrel House venue in Totnes – the recording capturing his deft ability to strip down full arrangements and deliver a different and engaging take on them. It’s taken from a forthcoming Live E.P, due to be released in November 2019.
Ren – born Conor Owen in East Ham, East London to a Mum from Dublin and a Dad from Liverpool – is now based in Newcastle after studying music in London. His debut EP, ‘A Calling From The Shore’, has to date received over 750K streams on Spotify. He recently supported Sam Fender, Westerman and Elvis Perkins as well as appearing as an extra in Bohemian Rhapsody. His recent releases have garnered coverage from Clash, Indie London, Belwood Music Blog, Thank Folk For That, Music Injection, BBC Radio Bristol, 6music and Amazing Radio.
Honing his craft in France with over 150, 90-minute sets over a four month period, Ren is well prepared for the road ahead. Upcoming live shows include a support slot with Morning People (reformed group formerly known as Idle Hands) at Bobik’s (new music venue) in Newcastle on August 9th, and a show at The Finsbury in London as part of a Stop Look Listen evening on October 1st.
