He's on a Boat: On The Road With Rich Medina (Sept. 11-19)

Renee Neufville

WHERE: Props, Le Poisson Rouge, New York
WHEN: September 14, 2011

"Hey Mr DJ", "It's a Party," and "Sending My Love"  (Motown/1994) are just a choice few reasons you should know this young lady here, in case you're wondering who she is. One half of the R&B darlings once known as Zhané, she has written bangers over the years, not only for herself and partner Jean during their tenure as a duo, but for many other artists including Roy Hargrove, Pharoahe Monch, and Pete Rock. Renee has been like family to me for well over a decade, and she's been just as personal to Lepse as well, since the early APT days, dating back to 2001. I can say here that I've gotten nothing but constant support and appreciation from this woman, and she's one of a choice few, highly decorated musicians and vocalists I know who will just come by the party, dance for hours, and voluntarily get on the mic to improvise or perform in full upon request, and very well at that.
