JAZZ ROOM at Stage Door Theater at the Blumenthal, 155 North College Street, Charlotte, NC 28202, USA
Vocalist René Marie, this month’s JAZZ ROOM headliner, spends an hour speaking to us about her unique, storytelling approach to jazz and the roots that her music spring from.
“Our group, Experiment In Truth, is committed to exploring the nooks and crannies of the human psyche. Songs about homelessness, domestic abuse, depression, addiction, inner strength, family ties, self-determination and positivity are frequently on our set list. We are dedicated to using our platform to keep these topics front and center.” – René Marie
René Marie was born in Virginia and has spent her life across this region. She didn’t begin her musical career until after age 40, and has since released 8 CDs, culminating in a Grammy nomination, plus a theater production.
