RENEE & THE RENEGADES
“Renee Leavitt is the real deal,” said legendary rock n’ roller, Gary U.S. Bonds. Renee starting singing at the age of three and entered her first contest at the age of eight, finishing in 2nd place overall. Leavitt is building upon her fan base through her songwriting abilities, catchy tunes, pure voice, poised stage presence and her “girl next door,” blue eyed, strawberry blonde, country look.
Her band, Renee and the Renegades, has what fans call a ‘unique’ sound. There is no one in country music that can scratch an itch for one of their original scores. Her Karen Carpenter-like voice mixes Zydeco, Irish Folk, Pop, Rock, and Vintage Country.
When Leavitt isn’t performing her original hits, you can find her at local parishes as the cantor, or leader of song. She has been a cantor for nine years and she never plans to stop giving back to her community.
