Renee Armand

American Singer/Songwriter/Poet

Renee Armand is an American singer and songwriter living on her 1880’s farm south of Nashville, Tennessee. She is an accomplished poet, writer, gardener, and naturalist. Her music career has spanned decades, beginning in Los Angeles in the 1970’s. Renee is currently touring in the United States, Mexico and Canada.

Rolling Stone called her “timeless.”

Renee began her career at the age of seventeen with John Handy’s fusion band in San Francisco. By the age of twenty, Renee had been discovered by Tony Bennett, mentored by Carmen McRae, and was on the road with Woody Herman and Harry James. She was Herman’s last band singer.

While earning her living as a studio singer in Los Angeles, Armand was signed by A&M Records first as a songwriter in collaboration with Kerry Chater, and then as an artist. Her extraordinary gift for live performance has taken her to major cities in the United States, Europe, Japan, Australia, and France. She's been heard on stages from a chicken-wired bar in Roswell, New Mexico to Madison Square Garden, the Royal Albert Hall, the Nippon Budokan, the Sydney Opera House and L’Olympia in Paris.

Hers is the voice heard on the Oscar-winning theme song "The Morning After" from the "The Poseidon Adventure"; numerous television themes, and countless commercials. Additionally, Armand is heard on albums with Michael Jackson, Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, John Denver, Emmy Lou Harris and many more.

Armand has written, performed and collaborated with many notable artists. She co-wrote her first country hit "Boney Fingers" with Hoyt Axton, and she is the writer of Michael Jackson’s “One Day in Your Life.” Her own albums include The Rain Book on A&M, In Time on RCA, The Coyote Sisters on Motown, and Listen, sung directly from A Course of Miracles.

Renee is currently rehearsing for upcoming shows in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico and in the northeast US, and is booking tours in the United States, Mexico and Canada.
