FARM BOY TURNED RECORDING ARTIST
René Le Feuvre is a 23 year old Australian pop artist and songwriter who grew up in a small country town of less than 350 people. René initially moved out of home at age 17 to pursue a career in Australian rules football, and being short of change started busking on weekends. What might sound like an ‘accident’ was merely destiny calling. The self-taught guitarist slotted seamlessly into the role of performing, mastering the art of looping made famous by quintessential pop star Ed Sheeran. After constant support from friends and audience members, René decided to audition for The Voice AU in 2018 where he was successfully chosen and mentored by Boy George.
Since then, René has connected and resonated with thousands through his own original music, his first independent release ‘Here for you’ already surpassing a million streams and counting. Transitioning his style from indie folk singer songwriter to dream pop has seen a rise in attention for the young artist not only from his fans but also within the industry, with nominations for the Vanda and Young International songwriting competition, Gold Coast Music Awards, and a top-3 pick in Nashville’s Rising Song competition. Missing out on opportunities to perform during SXSW in 2020 due to Covid saw René instead continue to write and hone his craft which brings us to now.
Rene’s undeniable star quality will continue to shine this year with 12 releases scheduled in 2022 (one per month) and a rebrand in his live show performance. With an EP release in June and a second EP already in the works, René will soon be ready to tour his new music - keep an eye out for the show posters!
