Ren shares with us a new smooth track with amazing vocals and an addicitive melody entitled , ‘Willow’.
“[It was] Written after a trip to visit friends and family in Ireland, I woke one morning to after having a dream about an ex-girlfriend. I wrote ‘Willow’ that day and the song for me represents the ebb and flow or the cyclical nature of love.
I didn’t intend to record the song on a nylon string guitar but a few days before I was due to go to the studio I was over the road at my local charity shop and I broke a guitar that I was messing around with! I had to buy the guitar and repair it myself but it was the best £30 I’ve spent and I can’t imagine the song without it.” – Ren
