ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Live Devotion is Robin Renée's first recording dedicated wholly to sacred chant. Borne of one inspired recording session in October 2006, the seven long tracks evoke peace, passion, and the presence of Universal Love. From the sexy, rock feel of "Jai Ma" to the time-honored "Sita Ram" to the fun, ‘peace-army’ multi-part "Om Shanti Krishna," Live Devotion is a fresh take on an ancient tradition. These are songs that invite joy, stillness, dance, insight, tears, expansion, and connection.

Accessible tunes with a spiritual twist have forged Robin’s personal genre--Mantra-Pop! The seeds of her diverse influences (acts as disparate as Elvis Costello, Krishna Das, James Taylor, Gary Wilson, and Devo) can be uncovered therein, as well as a longtime focus on Eastern and eclectic mysticism, the mystery that cuts to the core of this powerful singer and wordsmith. At a live show today you might catch Robin Renée at a solo acoustic singer/songwriter set, in a collaboration, or leading kirtan- the call-and-response form of Hindu-based devotional chanting in Sanskrit prominent on Live Devotion.

Songs like “I’m Coming Down” and “Holy River” from her previous offering, All Six Senses, foreshadowed this directly spiritual debut with their stories of cosmic transformation. All Six Senses (2002) was produced by Scott Mathews, who has worked with artists as fabulous as George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Elvis Costello, Patti LaBelle and many more. It followed In Progress, Renée's first full-length recording (2000), which was applauded in much alternative press across the U.S.

Robin Renée has often credited the sight of David Bowie in a dress with opening her eyes to transformation and expression. It was no doubt an inspiration, but Renée's real drive comes from within. She has battled through the grip of depression, has been enveloped in the bliss of spiritual ecstasy, and lives to tell the tales. On Live Devotion, she foregoes storytelling in lieu of the powerful simplicity of mantra. She says, “The best gifts may come when we stop worrying about the meaning of words and just sing. Allow the sound to do its work of awakening.”

Extremely Powerful!!
WOW. This is one truly powerful cd. It has been my spiritual companion, since my first listen while driving home from one of Robin's shows and it still breaths beauty straight into my current everyday life. It is the essence of pure musical therapy. Sita Ram (track #3) alone melts and shifts me into an altered state of mind. Whether you are contemplating a deeper richness to your life or whether you simply feel the urge to stand up, dance, shake your body, and get your groove on, this cd celebrates and nourishes exactly who you are in any given moment. "Live Devotion" is a journey straight into the core of my being. It guides me, stretching my former perceptions of reality and I question my life's existence. I flow into unknown depths, all the while OPENING, BREATHING, and SHEDDING a new skin with each listen. There is a rawness, humanness, diversity of emotions, and a depth of expression that I can SO relate to. For the soul, it is a true GIFT.

Let The Music Move You
As a Massage Therapist, I'm always looking for music that is a healthy combination of soothing, energizing, uplifting and spiritually moving. Of course I have listened to this CD several times for recreation and I enjoyed it, but when I used it recently for a massage client who likes Kirtan, it was AMAZING. The music fed the massage and fed me. I felt like it was so much easier to open up and give all that was needed of me, and the music helped keep my chakras and meridians wide open as the session continued without any efforts on my part. There were a few times when I even forgot there was a CD playing because I felt as if you were there in the room singing to us and filling the room with all your love and energy. Afterwards, my client said it was one of the best massages I've ever given her. I know that a big part of that was my experience with the music. I felt that I needed to tell you about this experience and thank you for such a beautiful gift.
