Ren Marabou Says Quite a Bit About Himself and the Music He Creates!

Up and comer REN MARABOU has been doing music since his teen's, writing and creating as such. In fact, he has a debut album titled "Through Your Actions", out with a few single's off it as well. A lot more interesting stuff is in the works currently, with the future looking ever so brightly from here on out! See what Ren himself had to say about being an artist and what he has in-store!

1. Please tell us about your musical history.

My parents bought me my first guitar when I was 15 and I was instantly hooked. From that day music became my life. I have been incredibly lucky to be a member of several great Irish bands over the years playing with world class musicians. Kerouac was the band that really kick started my career and my touring and recording life. After a long time with Kerouac I played with Wexford based band Marabou. After great success with these bands I formed the band I am currently in, Peralis. After so many years playing detuned heavy rock and metal I thought it was a good time to kick off my solo career and delve into other musical styles. 
2. Where are you based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

I am currently based in Letterkenny Co. Donegal in Ireland. There is a great scene out here and there are so many of brilliant musicians. Disturbance promotions have great nights for local bands. A few awesome local bands are Stone Relic, Kessler Effect and Blackbird & Crow.

3. How would you describe your style?

My solo music is all about tapping into all my musical influences. My style ranges from classic and modern rock, prog and experimental to Indie, folk and blues. From track to track I let the music dictate where I go next and what style I pull from. 

4. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

I am currently promoting my debut release "Through Your Actions". People can expect a wide range of styles, but all the tracks are recognizable as my work. I wrote, played, recorded, mixed and mastered all the tracks and released them via BMJ Records UK. 

5. Do you have any new music in the works?

The music video for my track "This Great Emergency" which is taken from "Through Your Actions" is set for release on the 18th of May. My second release "Significant Progress" is set for release mid-June 2020 and will be available on all major platforms. 

6. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Unfortunately, due to the awful Pandemic all shows and tours have been cancelled but I am hoping to hit the stage by the end of the year.

7. What plans do you have for the future?

I have loads of cool stuff in the pipeline which I cannot wait to kick into. New endorsements and collaborations are in the works as well as very humbling support shows. I am lucky to be able to work with some amazing people in the industry, so the future is looking bright.

8. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

"Through Your Actions", is available now on all major platforms including Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Music and Apple Music. All my music videos are on my Ren Marabou YouTube Channel.

9. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

If a listener had at least one of my melodies stuck in their head for the day after hearing one of my songs then I would have achieved my goal.
