The Great Singapore Replay: Season 2: RENE


RENE is a singer-songwriter from Singapore. Her debut single “Lonely” was released in April 2018, and her follow-up single “Cheese on Toast” was released in February 2019. She is releasing new music in November 2019 and expects to release her debut EP in 2020.

RENE’s music is greatly influenced by a mix of artists that she’s listened to while growing up and those she currently listens to, such as McFly, HAIM, and Paramore. Her songwriting reflects themes such as the vicissitudes of coming of age and personal relationships. She is a pop artist at heart, but enjoys crossing the boundaries of genres by drawing inspiration from all types of music and art.

RENE has performed for events like Esplanade’s All Things New (2019), Esplanade’s Red Dot August (2019), Festival For Good (2018), and in popular music venues like Timbre @ Substation. Most recently, she was featured in a live radio interview and performance on 987 FM’s Fresh Music Live. RENE has participated in music competitions, notably winning first place for The Great Singapore Replay Season 1’s Open Call in 2017. She was subsequently featured in a live interview on Channel News Asia’s First Look Asia segment in September 2017. She also performed as an opening act for ROYAL ESTATE's EP Launch in March 2019.
