Renee is interested in any and all collaborations concerning creating music - any style - any language (almost) any theme. Her specialties are vocals (lead and harmony arrangements) and song writing (English and Spanish).Contact Renee@asteriarecords.infoPRESS RELEASEDiscover the "Faces of Agent Double E" Imagine Manu Chau meets Portishead... Renee Asteria's New Release A masterpiece representing the combined efforts of musicians from San Francisco Bay and Buenos Aires, Argentina.Renée Asteria's music is a strange fusion of Folk-Rock-Reggae whichrepresents the rare combination of cultures and environments which sheembodies. Her father is Bolivian and mother is Dutch, she grew up inFrance but was born in the US (NJ). Her family background and love ofsocial work have granted her great privilege to work, study and travelin other countries. After one year of social work in Latin America, Renee returns with a second full length album "Caras de Agente Doble E" ("Faces of Agent Doble E") which she produced with much blood and sweat in Buenos Aires, Argentina from October 2006 to April 2007. Argentine producer Matias Martyn and local musicians from TIBETANMONKEY ( Reggae-Dub), SINSEMILLA (Reggae) andTONY FLUYE (Funk-Rock) bring the 12-song production to life. Withsimple lyrics and enticing music, Renee fuses her passions; South andNorth America, social work and music, love and nature. You'll hear rock with a Portishead/Nirvana/Byork/Blind Melon/Soundgarden feel (listen to So Irrational, Lullabye, Smile) and Reggae - Manu Chau/Lee Perry/Wailerswith a female touch (check out Vinchuca, Break Away) - and - evendancehall (Open Mind). Her vocals will make you dance and dream. The bilingual album (English and Spanish) is characterized by Renee'scatchy but creative melodies and quirky song themes, including, insectdisease vectors ("Mosquito", Dengue fever prevention and "Vinchuca",risk factors for Chagas disease) and love songs as odes to the Sun("Oblivion") and the Sea ("Blue Mystery"). Why AGENT DOUBLE E? Well, as a woman - in Latin America it is strange to be named Renée - so she has always presented herself as René "with double e for a woman" translated in Spanish to "con doble e para mujer" - and her nomadic lifestyle leads some friends tosuspect that she's a SPY - HAHAH. Who knows? Thus the name AgentDouble E (Agente Doble E)!
