NEW MONDAY! CLAIRE RENEÉ Red Lights
by Walter Price
The recent single “Red Lights” is as much in the now as it is in the past. Jazzy soul laced with hip-hop beats that may remind you of a blend of Erykah Badu and Arrested Development as it explores the need to slow it down and take an introspective pause. Weighty and beautiful, this is a pop song from a burgeoning star who has it all. A pulse on her surroundings, lyrical depth, ready for celluloid looks, and an undeniable captivating voice. And as we near a post-pandemic era, Reneé is an artist that the world needs to soundtrack new beginnings.
In a quote provided to the GTC, the songwriter talks about the Dr.Dundiff produced track’s backstory, “‘Red Lights’ is a song that I wrote when l felt super frustrated and stagnant, yet I felt like I was on a hamster wheel and couldn’t get off. Everything around me seemed to be moving so quickly. It’s about taking time to slow down and sit with ourselves, sometimes even heeding to signs from our own ancestors and spirit guides.”
“Red Lights” is taken from the phenomenal ‘Wings’ LP and you can stream this stunner as well as see its film, directed by Dean Singleton, now at the GTC.

“Claire Reneé is a classically trained dancer who sings from the soul. Singing a combination of R&B, soul, jazz, and pop while being heavily influenced by hip hop, this singer/songwriter’s raspy yet graceful vocals, along with her unique harmonies, always provide an incredible vibe and sound. Her natural ear for music and performance led her to study at Berklee College of Music and The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music.” – bio
