Ren has returned with the release of their new music video for “The Writer.” Watch here.
About the song, Conor comments:
This song is about my experience with being close to someone who suffers from depression and realising that my advice is useless to them. The writer that I refer to in the chorus is a great singer songwriter friend of mine, Paul Noels, whose song ‘Sound of The Future’ inspired me to keep on pushing forward in times of self doubt.
Having spent years on the road, busking, playing festivals and touring around the world, Ren gives us his traveled and weathered infused tales of life experience in the form of well crafted folk songs. Ren was born into a culturally Irish household in London where the tradition of story telling was ingrained in him from an early age. That Irish heritage mixed with listening to some great records from his parents collection pushed Ren in to immersing himself in Londons bustling singer / songwriter scene. From there, Ren has supported the likes of Dawn Landes, Glen Matlock and Cathal Coughlan to name a few.
Ren’s 2017 debut release ‘A Calling From The Shore’ reflects upon an adventurous and searching period of time living out of his van around the UK and Europe. It’s clear to see that audiences have really connected with Ren’s yearning for exploration as ‘A Calling From The Shore’ has received 400k streams on spotify since it’s release as well as having being played on top regional and national radio stations including BBC Radio 6music.
