New Album Release for Keith and Renee
Keith and Renee’s latest project Feel Good Thing is a powerful 12-track CD that features songs written and produced over a three-year span during their Nashville, Toronto and Winnipeg visits. The album is packed with several superstar artists, writers and musicians who all played a significant role in the making of their best album to date. “This is a special album created by two gifted and wonderful people” says Jill Snell-de Cartier, Founder of Road Angel “I couldn’t be more proud to introduce people to their new music.” Keith and Renee took time to write this gem throughout many of their trips across North America - utilizing their personal stories and significant life moments they have experienced. This album is all about ‘feeling good’: ‘We wanted to get our best 12 songs that our fans could dance and sing to. Life can be pretty tough and overwhelming sometimes if you get caught up in the negative. We wanted to reach out and have an album that makes us feel good and sing at the top of our lungs so we can forget about the many stresses and focus on the fun.’
Made up of Keith Macpherson and Renee Lamoureux, the duo showcase their musical collaboration that combine the versatile talents between both. They’ve toured with the likes of Jann Arden, Dean Brody, Dallas Smith and recently shared a stage with Zac Brown Band at Prairie Jam. Keith and Renee met at Renee’s church in Ile Des Chenes, MB when Keith asked her if she’d like to write a song with him. What started as a brief encounter in a church, quickly developed into a musical duo when the two discovered their voices blended well; brought together by a common passion for music. They have traveled across the globe taking part in events such as performing in Dubai for hundreds, playing for the Queen of England, winning a Western Canadian Music Award and having their song Good Year placed on an AT&T commercial. They spent two summers in Kenya, Africa as ambassadors for Free the Children and toured across Canada performing in schools; inspiring youths to make a difference. From that experience, David Suzuki chose their song The One to be featured on his Playlist of the Planet cd. Recently, KnR took part in We Day with Free the Children performing for 16,000 youths and released their single Feel Good Thing to Canadian radio. They supported award winning country band High Valley on their Western Canadian Countyline tour in the winter 2014. Now, the duo is ready to launch their album Feel Good Thing commencing with a concert in their hometown of Winnipeg to kick it off.
The concert on January 31, 2015 is an all ages show and will take place at the Park Theatre. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
