Renee Goust is a New York City-based Mexican-American singer-songwriter and activist. She made headlines around the world when her feminist anthem “La Cumbia Feminazi” went viral in 2016. Her sound is driven, personable and culturally diverse, ranging from American folk to rancheras and Norteño cumbias. Renee Goust is a songsmith, travelling between genres to tell stories and deliver messages in poignant ways. Raised bilingual, and having grown up crossing the US-Mexico border daily between Nogales, Sonora and Nogales, Arizona to and from school, Renee enjoys traversing boundaries with her music as well. She currently writes in Spanish, English, French and Italian.
Following her debut EP, “Septiembre”, released in 2017, Renee is now promoting singles from her upcoming sophomore release titled “Sad on Saturday”. This new collection of music combines elements of folk, indie rock, and power pop ballads. Its confessional lyrics open up on the hardships of overcoming social rejection, the struggle of growing up queer in a conservative religious environment, and her personal journey from self-harm to self-empowerment and love.
