"The Brooklyn duo - comprising singers/multi-instrumentalists Anna Nordeen and Reni Lane – sound like The Bangles if they’d been more into 1980s dance music than ’60s guitar music. "Tantalized" could be played back to back with Our Lips Are Sealed by The Go-Go’s; That’s So Typical is iridescent and infectious indie funk worthy of The Waitresses; and Looks Good on Paper sounds like something Bananarama might have come up with while Robert De Niro was waiting for them in 1984." - Paul Lester, The Guardian

* bold indicates act in which Reni performs
Reni at her core is a compelling performer (lending her multi-instrumental skills to Duncan Sheik, Joseph Arthur, and The Like) and formidable songwriter (collaborating with seasoned pros like Linda Perry and Howie Day). But not surprisingly, what most people remember about Reni is her unique, haunting voice.
At 19, while attending Columbia University's creative writing program, she was discovered by Perry who released her major label debut Ready on Universal Motown. The LP’s breakout track Place For Us was featured on VH1, The L Word, and KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic.
In the years since Ready, Reni has continued to expand her creative arsenal. She recently collaborated with music app Keezy on a series of performance videos which have been viewed over 40,000 times on Vimeo. She’s opened for The XX, Grace Potter, She & Him, and had her various creative collaborations featured in Paste, NPR, Sundance Film Festival and SXSW Interactive.
She can be found performing regularly in New York eponymously as 'Jablonsky,' writing for her eco-blog Zero Waste Rockstar, and fronting retro-pop duo Fever High with bandmates Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne, Ivy) and Anna Nordeen.
