Renee Maskin - Dreams A River [EP]

Mint 400

Big TakeoverPremiere

“…Maskin sounds like she’s got more than a little Leonard Cohen in her.” – You Don’t Know Jersey

“…draws from a well of trodden, rustic folk pathways while still creating a polished indie sound…” – Elmore Magazine

“…indie-folk at its finest” – The Rodeo Mag

“…quintessential, smart, unique Americana” – BloodMakesNoise

Known for her distinctive voice, literally and artistically, Renee Maskin is a staple of the thriving music scene in Asbury Park, NJ. Her lyrics range from heartfelt to subtly wry, often within the same song. Musically, she draws from a wide well of influence. From country and Americana, to krautrock, to glam.

Formerly of LowlightMaskin co-wrote four acclaimed studio albums with the band and notably toured in support of The Pretenders. Her first solo release, Swimming combines Maskin’s distinguishable song craft sensibilities with layers of ambient textures to round out the record. Her follow up EP, Dreams a River expands on this tension between traditional folk and experimental tendencies. Written and recorded quickly over the summer of 2022, Dreams of River is a document of inner monologues ranging from love, to political uncertainty, to social and spiritual growth. It’s out 11/18 via Mint 400 Records.
