Renee & Jeremy Launch Enchanting ‘Whole Lotta Love’
Folks duo Renee & Jeremy, aka Renee Stahl and Jeremy Toback, not too long ago launched their first album in 9 years. Entitled Complete Lotta Love, the album includes covers of songs by Led Zeppelin, INXs, Weapons N’ Roses, MGMT, Sly & the Household Stone, and the B52s.
Speaking in regards to the album, Jeremy says, “We enjoyed seeing ‘A Little Love’ cross over on Sirius XM Coffeehouse as well as streaming covers playlists. So, we set out to make a record that could touch those music fans and our family music home base as well, with both the arrangements and song choices reflecting a more full spectrum of emotion.”
Whereas Renee provides, “I am excited to share this music with everyone. It’s been a long time since we released a full album. It feels right for this moment in time. Gentleness, nurturing and acceptance is what we all need right now.”
Produced by Wealthy Jacques, who works with Lisa Loeb, and is famend for his magical ‘less is more’ contact, the album takes iconic songs and reimagines them, infusing them with the deliciously synced harmonies of Renee & Jeremy, whose over 100 million streams testify to the attract of their sound.
Encompassing 11-tracks, highlights embrace the title monitor, the duo’s low-slung, sighing model of Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love.” Jimmy Web page’s uncooked, searing guitar licks are changed by a mild acoustic guitar, whereas refined people textures take the place of Plant’s wailing voice.
“Sweet Child O’ Mine” travels on heat, nuanced colours as Renee & Jeremy imbue the lyrics with intimate quixotic flavors. “Here And Now,” the one authentic tune on the album, rolls out on a gentle, gleaming melody paying homage to Peter, Paul, and Mary. Plush harmonies imbue the tune with cashmere savors, without delay charming and oh so beautiful.
MGMT’s “Kids” drips with mellow coloration, soothing guitars echoing one another, and gossamer vocals. One other favourite is Renee & Jeremy’s whispery rendition of Johnny Nash’s “I Can See Clearly Now.” Sleek with elegant timbres, the tune revolves across the luxurious, creamy harmonies of Renee & Jeremy’s beautiful voices.
On Complete Lotta Love, Renee & Jeremy do the seemingly unattainable — provide enchanting editions of unforgettable songs starting from arduous rock to pop.
