'YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO'
René Le Feuvre is charging full steam ahead in 2021 being nominated as Breakout Artist of the Year in the Gold Coast Music awards and earlier this year receiving a top 40 nomination in the prestigious Vanda and Young songwriting competition. A farm boy at heart, René began his career busking for money after relocating from North Queensland at 17 to originally pursue a career in Australian rules football with the Gold Coast Suns. René instead found his true passion in music after performing on The Voice AU in 2018 where he was coached by Boy George, which ultimately decided his future.
An example of “taking every opportunity because you never know who’s watching”, 2020 would have seen René embark on his most ambitious outing yet, securing two showcases for the 2020 inaugural SXSW festival in Austin, Texas after performing at a random gig for an open house for less than 10 people. Equally as impressive was the press run slated for this US tour featuring four morning show appearances, TV interviews and live performances on CBS and NBC affiliates as well as terrestrial radio. This career defining opportunity lost due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, led René to return to his Northern Queensland home and create his most honest and fully realised material yet. This period of unprecedented times was documented in his debut singer/songwriter EP ‘Watch Me Fall’ which was supported by a SOLD OUT headline show at Gold Coast’s iconic Miami Marketta.
With a devoted team around him, 2021 will be a defining year for René as he transitions in his sound and branding. With his talent, dedication to his craft, and his undeniable charm and star quality, René is set to break the Australian music industry with two EPs already planned and on the way. Watch this space!
