The songsmith Shane Rennison takes from the world his raw materials and welds together a precious Jewel Album- Nice To Meet You. Singer-songwriter Shane Rennison, originating from the picturesque Catskills in Upstate New York, brings an authentic and soulful vibe to his work. His music spans a wide range of covers and original compositions, all delivered with heartfelt emotions. This particular album is a mix of pop, synth and soft rock. He has a unique voice and it shows in his craftsmanship. He clearly has a good read on the pulse of the people, all the beats sound fresh and unlike anything you’ve ever heard before.
Cold Winter with Shane Rennison
Cold Winter is a slow start to the album, he chimes us in with ethereal atmospheric sounds. The pop synth kicks in and before you know it, you have hit the floor running. Everything about the song feels like you are zooming through a forest full of memories. What’s special is that the track emits this running quality through its fast-paced beats. Now and then he gives us time to breathe and pause.
After that banger of a track, we soothe the spirit with Another Chance. The instrumentals are new so your ears immediately perk up when you hear it. The steady synth with its bubble-like quality has us all tuned in immediately. We also hear the track pick up in the atmosphere. With the introduction of drums, it has a unique dance-worthy quality and that paired with the synth has us on the edge of our seats. He sings of crucial questions that one must ask while they are in a relationship. Every element in this song feels surreally unique, it stands out enough to let Shane’s unique voice shine and take the spotlight.
We call it a night with Temptation. Everything about this track leaves you with your spirit flying high. The song embodies the feeling of falling in love. It has a beach feel to it. With this particular beat structure, you can pull your partner in close and rumba the night away. Shane really gives us a celebration/ carnival to hold onto with this number.
Also, can we take time out to appreciate the names of each track that leaves you intrigued? Much like the film Love and Other Drugs. This film has a cult (albeit small) of its own. It is only fair that Nice To Meet You accompanies a raw and talented script such as this. You can hear each and every song fold itself neatly into scenes and elevate even more. Shane Rennison is a New Yorker who knows his audience and gives them exactly that. I truly wonder how it would be to watch him live.
