Sunday afternoon on Jazz Tones on WCLK I had the opportunity to interview René Marie. She is a vocalist, arranger and composer. theatrical performer, and teacher. She was born in Warrenton, Virginia and neither of her parents were formally trained musicians but exposed her to Blues, R&B,classical, folk and bluegrass music. Part of René's musical philosophy has been focused on giving back. In  2010 she launched a series of vocal group sessions called Slam. Her lastest release was 2016's Sound of Red.  This was her first album of all orginal material.
