Rene Marie, the award winning singer whose style incorporates elements of jazz, soul, blues and gospel, has quickly become a heroine to many; a woman of great strength exuding stamina and compassion; often explaining how finding her voice and self through singing gave her the courage to leave an abusive marriage.

Releasing Experiment in Truth in 2007 as a self-produced and self-released album with Kevin Bales (piano), Rodney Jordan (bass), Quentin Baxter (drums) recorded within a recital hall at the College of Charleston, South Carolina. The concept behind the project was to create authentic live sound without stopping or starting countless times, recording 11 songs for the unique album.

Rene Marie has received several awards throughout her career including Best International Jazz Vocal CD (besting Cassandra Wilson and Joni Mitchell) by the Academie Du Jazz (Paris, France). She has graced the Billboard charts multiple times propelling her to headliner status at major festivals in the US & abroad including the prestigious Women In Jazz Festival at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Spoleto Festival in Charleston, SC, the Edinburgh Jazz Festival (Scotland), Shanghai Jazz Festival (China) among many others.
