NZ MUSICIAN MARCH 2017 REVIEW OF 'EVERYWHERE I TURN'
There would be few who couldn't connect to the heartbreak that pours out of Renny M's 'Everywhere I Turn'. This is a crafted and slickly produced (by Renny M & Dave Carnahan) EP that tells a story from beginning to end. The acoustic guitar and touches of keyboard and percussion run as a beautiful compliment to Renny's unique, dusty and direct vocals. The New Plymouth dwelling Australian artist recorded at Carnahan's King Street studios, as well as in NSW.
Opening gently with 'Since you Went Away', the journey of love starts with lightness both instrumentally and from a production perspective, allowing close connection with the lyrics. The heavier lead guitar in 'Everywhere I Turn' lends an intensity and sadness, building to the musical and relationship crescendo of 'Till you Can be True'. As if coming out of the darkness, the EP closes out with the tentatively hopeful 'All of Me.'
In 24 minutes Renny M takes you on a journey of love held, love lost, and hearts healed.
If her EP is anything to go by, Renny M is a well of untapped songwriting and production potential.
