Indie pop/rock singer-songwriter extraordinaire, and one busy person, Renee Muzquiz is our latest Drop-In Session on Sounds of PDX…and we sure are grateful!

We got the chance to talk musical influences, hear a couple tracks LIVE from her latest release and get the scoop on the many irons Renee has in lots of different fires. Oh and wait…there’s free tickets to a super cool show too!

Renee’s album “Where Trees Once Made a Sound” has been out since the tail end of 2022 – this 9 song collection offers a poignant look inside the soul of its creators (Renee, along side her brother Ramon Muzquiz and producer Sean Flora {The Shins, Beth Ditto}) while giving a genre-bending listening experience.

Track 2 from “Where Trees Once Made a Sound” – “Gay Kids” – was also released as a video, which you can see here. It’s a beautifully done visual interpretation of the song.

Not only is Renee practicing guitar on the daily as part of the Brett’s Base Fund Noise-A-Thon, we’re stoked that she’s become a part of the Music Portland and Music Oregon teams as Administration Director.

And if ALL that wasn’t enough, Renee is playing on June 22nd at Mississippi Studios with her fellow “Bowie nerds” in Major Tomboys – an all femme David Bowie cover band (with opening band N*SYNCedUp) – and we’ve got a couple pairs of tickets to giveaway! Email and let us know your favorite Bowie song for a shot at a pair of tickets!

Take a listen to the drop-in session below and get the deets on ALL THINGS RENEE!

This Drop-in Session was made possible in part by grants from the Oregon Cultural Trust and The Marie Lamfrom Charitable Foundation.
