Renee King has been blessed to have a very colorful musical career that spans not only the last 31 years, but has also had the honor of being on the same stage with Tanya Tucker, Mark Chestnut, KT Oslin, Diamond Rio, Roy Head and other Houston Greats. Her own band, Renee King & Wildcard & The Yes Men, performed all over the Southwest Region of Texas in the late 80’s and into the late 90’s. It was with these bands that she found her love for fundraising and was instrumental in being part of many occasions to raise money for charity events of all kinds. Her love for the stage and humanity continues in her next chapter as she once again hits the music scene in 2012.
She saw a need for developing young talent and then opened Renee King’s School of Performing Stars, located near the Houston Galleria. The school quickly received recognition as the place to go to learn stage and vocal performance and within a very short time was opening up in the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo for Trisha Yearwood, Doug Stone & Tracy Lawrence. The Ray Carmack Carnival made her school part of their outdoor event at the Rodeo and the publicity she and her students received as a result of that 3 weeks was incredible.
After a short retirement (ha), and with music in her blood, she hooked up with Ron Corb which then had the TILT band and became the featured female vocalist in a dynamic and versatile duo setting that specialized in private parties and small pubs.
She was one of the winners of the Gilley’s Talent Search in the late 70’s where she met Leon Beck who has inspired her throughout her career to go the distance. Recently, in November, 2011, she sang at the Urban Cowboy Gilley’s Reunion held at the Lone Star Club in Pasadena and promoted by Leon.
Her style is notably versatile ranging from country, rock and roll, blues, jazz, folk, bluegrass, Broadway and ballads of all kinds!
Currently, we are scheduling upcoming performances which will be promoted in Leon Beck’s, Texas Hot Country Magazine. Check her out on Facebook, Twitter,ReverbNation Myspace & Sound Cloud.
