Artist Bio

Here is the new Disc Face of Tennessee, i like it a lot.

This morning I was working on getting all my shit together, (which my renewed sense of purpose from the night before tucked under my arm)... I managed to get my digital distribution a paperwork/files for Big Rig Records a Digital Distributor out of Australia... neat huh?

Anyways, below is the artist bio I sent them... I'm looking for some feedback. Lemme know if its too egotistical, or the least bit grammatical, (here's hoping). Does it make sense? I not good at writing thingy.

Renee Arozqueta bloomed from a seaside city on the gulf coast of Florida and like a dandelion seed she eventually sailed away. To the South, to the North and eventually she would go west.
Her first couple of albums fall under the umbrella of folk singer-songwriter. With the release of her double disc “No Sorrow Tomorrow/Lullagoodbyes” in 2008 she began incorporating ambient and environmental influences into the recording process. With a Volvo full of CDs she started to tour the eastern half of the United States, and continues to work her way westward until all 48 states have been “collected.”
In 2009 she joined forces with Chad Bishop, another Pensacola musician. Bishop’s previous bands include, Flat Broke Folk, The Cripple Lilies, Paper Scissors Rocketpack and most recently Spider + Octopus, which the two would tour under. (Renee as the octopus and Bishop as the spider).
As the years and mileage accumulate, Renee continues to grow in new directions with her albums, with new instruments, (accordion, drums, piano, guitar, ukulele, upright bass, singing saw) and new sounds both in the fore and background giving the new songs a different kind of depth while maintaining a style of minimalism. “Tennessee” released in September 2010, takes the idea of environmental sounds from the previous release into the bedroom. “Tennessee” was recorded within a hundred year old house in Knoxville. All of the elements that would normally be eliminated in a sound proof recording studio; dogs barking, mothers chattering, air and dust and sometimes emotion, are all in the mix, making the tracks more like windows than songs.
Currently, (2010), Renee continues to record and play in Knoxville, both as a solo project and with Spider + Octopus. A cross country tour is in the works for 2011.

sometimes i get lucky, and sometimes the dogs bark from the moment i pull into the carport, call my friend in Pensacola, walk thought the door, until i stick my hand in their mouth...

but tonight i got lucky.
1am... i snuck in... undetected.... the secret is... increasingly normal sounds. if I can get the door open... and creep in the kitchen.. AND get the light on... I'm free to eat pickles, almonds and fruit snacks for a bit. if I can do all that with out them going beserk i can sneak into the bedroom, past the sleeping chad and get the computer.... get into the bathroom and type to my hearts content. ...

by the time you read this, the sound alarm will be reset and i will have to sneak some more to get back into bed.

tonight i went out with some of my lady friends... who i call (ladiae)... friends. to calhoun's for drinks and talking about stuff. but calhoun's closes at 10!! so i was off to the pilot light, hoping to get myself and some far away friends booked for the october and december dates. how was I to know there was a PRIME parking spot right in front... like... band parking only... canadian noise band parking only. after perfectly parallel parking...(which is bey0ond Renee's normal operating capacity) I made my way into the Pilot Light

I wasn't planning on staying, my friends were all congregating at a bar next door... but I never made it. because you see... the noise band had cassettes for sale... so... i had to stay. and buy a couple... and then listen to the band. which was amazing.



both bands were actually pretty fantastico.

FAKE BLOOD... followed by AIDS WOLF.

just wow.

thus renewing my sense of purpose in the world. lets hope I get up early enough to take advantage of such a sense.

weird sounds and weird dreams

<a href="">sounds by Renee Arozqueta</a>

hello, until i get a scanner, I'm not blogging, I really want to put up the new cartoons. very badlys. so... this has been my best excuse for being lazy. I wish i had a miniature jillian michaels to follow me around and yell at me, like a jillian michaels conscience action figure... I'll bet they sell those somewhere, right next to Extra Gum and Exercise Balls.

Today is game day, its Raining, The Oregon Ducks have the distinct advantage, (since it will roll right off their backs)

I think that the things i am saying today are mundane, so I'm going to stop and go look at rain.
