THIS IS RENCH AUDIO
Based out of Brooklyn, Rench is an Emmy nominated, billboard charting musician and producer. He has been combining Country and Hip-Hop sounds for more than a decade, including solo material and projects like Gangstagrass.
Rench Audio has licensed music to MTV, ESPN, FX network, History Channel, A&E network, and many film and tv programs, including the Emmy nominated theme music to the FX network series "Justified"
“Rench and his friends have done nothing short of creating a new form of music. Gangstagrass takes two types of music that are opposites and mixes them together brilliantly in a way that is natural and enjoyable.” - Elmore Leonard
Rench also produces a variety of styles out of his Rench Audio production company - everything from pop to soul to folk to hip-hop. He produced the Maple Blues Award winning blues-gospel album “Send the Nightingale” by Samantha Martin and Delta Sugar. He produced the folk-soul album “Crossover” By Dan Whitener, which had a track placed in Spike Lee’s film “Black KKKlansman.”
"Rench’s vision has a toehold on a racy, improbable hybrid." -No Depression
Rench has created source music used in advertising for Target, Dove, Truvia, Unilever, Tempurpedic, and many other brands. His production studio is able to turn custom scores around quickly, and his broad network of talented NYC musicians of many genres is a huge asset to anyone looking for real music for their project.
“Gangstagrass adeptly layers rap lyrics over strong emotional accents from the instruments, something most DJs can't take advantage of when sampling electronica music. You can hear it in "Nobody Gonna Miss Me;" the skillful slide on the guitar and winsome lines from the fiddle fill in the background of the rap with a bluesy, remorseful tone.” - Mother Jones Magazine
Rench likes music with soul and music that makes you feel and he brings two decades worth of production experience, plus his weird brain, to bear in his mission to innovate in music.
“A mixture of bluegrass and hip-hop that might repel some purists on either side of the country-and-rap divide, but will knock the socks off just about everybody else.” - Wall Street Journal
