Weight Of Gold
About the Artist
a songwriter since the age of 8, music has always been a loving companion for rena during her many travels. “there were times when i was able to focus on it and then years when i wasn’t. all the same, i have always carried my music with me.” 4 years ago, along with her husband and two small children, rena moved from brooklyn, ny, to the raw caribbean island of st. lucia. she found there the space she needed to bring her music back to center stage.
citing influences of indie-rock, americana, psych-folk and blues, rena describes her sound as “desert-rock”- a long expanse of sound that fills in just some of the spaces, letting the listener settle into the others on their own. while the sound of this album might touch upon a time or a feeling that’s recognizable, this is more than just an exercise in nostalgia. weight of gold is rena’s deeply personal story; a story of love gained, lost and hoped for.
