Today we’d like to introduce you to Rene Bonét.
Rene, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I was born and raised right outside of Washington, D.C., in Leesburg, VA also known as the DMV (D.C., Maryland, & Virginia). Poetry was my first love as a teenager, but eventually, I started putting melodies to those writings and they became song lyrics. Being around the DMV and its heavy musical influences, I guess it was bound to happen. When I realized I could really do something with my music, I relocated to Atlanta, where I met Grammy award-winning engineer & producer, Alvin Speights, where I worked as his intern and recording artist. During this period, I learned quite a bit, recording myself and even engineering at times. I dropped my first professionally recorded project “Energy” on all major streaming platforms in the early part of 2019 then decided to do some traveling to Australia in which I loved the culture and the people. I would almost say it is kin to a second home for me now. After returning from Australia I was able to link up with a very talented Atlanta based music producer & filmmaker, Weku Did That, and was able to release my latest project, “Frequencies ” on all major streaming platforms, and there is so much more to come so definitely stay tuned.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
As far as things that I would consider smooth or hard, I would say it hasn’t been all smooth nor has it been all hard. I definitely understand what it means to have to do things and find a way for yourself, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but growing up in the inner city, there is always that temptation to get into things that you shouldn’t be getting into. I think that may have been the biggest struggle of all, just trying to stay out of trouble and remain focused.
Tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Currently, I’m a singer and songwriter. I have dabbled in production but I wouldn’t claim being a producer just yet, but maybe in the near future.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
As far as credit deserved, I would have to say the world-famous Peacock Management has always been one of my biggest support systems. I can never thank him enough. Second, I would say my Producer, Weku Did That. He really complements my artistry. I can’t wait for you all to hear and see the projects that we have coming out this year and in the years to come. It is truly exciting.
