Renee Goust is a New York City-based singer-songwriter who made headlines around the world when her feminist anthem “La Cumbia Feminazi” went viral in 2016. Her sound is driven, personable and culturally diverse. Renee grew up between two countries, crossing the border daily between Nogales, Arizona and Nogales, Mexico.
She began piano lessons at the young age of 9, and it wasn’t long before her musical curiosity took her to self-teach guitar and begin writing her own music. Raised bilingual, Renee quickly developed an interest in learning foreign languages while studying classical vocal performance in Guadalajara, Mexico. She learned French and Italian abroad.
Since 2007, Renee has lived and performed in NYC, often gracing the stages of well-regarded local music venues such as Piano’s and Rockwood Music Hall, among others. She has played in the US, Mexico, and Europe.
Following her first EP, “Septiembre”, released on September 2017, Renee is now gearing up to present “Bitter Oranges”, the first single on her sophomore EP titled “Sad on Saturday”. This new collection of music combines elements of pop, rock, and folk. Its confessional lyrics open up on the hardships of overcoming rejection and walking the road from self-harm to self-love.
