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 Lowlight, Maskin co-wrote four acclaimed studio albums with the band and notably toured in support of The Pretenders. Since 2022, Maskin has been consistently releasing solo music. In early 2023, her full-band LP Renee Maskin & The Mysterious Wilds reached number one most added on the NACC Folk charts. Shimmer follows up with Maskin back in the driver seat, handling the production and most of the instrumentation herself.
