Hello, my friends!

This Saturday, I attended the Philadelphia protest against the passage of Prop 8 in California. It made me think about my song "My Bride," and that I'd like it to speak more visibly

for the possibility and the equality of all kinds of love. To that end, I am creating a photo montage to "My Bride" for YouTube and possibly beyond.

I am seeking digital photos of all kinds of couples, traditional families, LGBTIQQ families, poly families, people of all races, genders... could be wedding, commitment ceremony,

or handfasting photos, relaxed hang-out photos, pics of you and your friends at a Prop 8 protest in your city... you get the idea!

Please send what you would like considered for inclusion ASAP to info@robinrenee.com. For my records, include your name and your permission for use of the image

in the "My Bride" montage. Thanks so much!!

Listen to "My Bride" here: www.myspace.com/robinrenee (second song).

Support Love,



Robin Renée

September 11, 2006

Well, it's finally happened!


Yes, folks, a picture of me--along with a few close friends-- appears in this week's National Enquirer-- 
on stands NOW, LOL.  No, it's not for my music or my wildly noteworthy love life (ha)... it's for attending a Cuddle Party (www.cuddleparty.com) 
in New York City.  It's such a hoot to be in the Enquirer... my little tiny piece of trash pop culture.  :-)  
You can barely see me, but if you do check it out, the story "Latest Dating Craze: Cuddle Parties!" is on page 18 (September 18, 2006 edition).  
I'm at the top of the big photo snuggling with my friends Reid, Marcia, and others in a cozy formation.  
 
Cuddle Party is actually a really beautiful trend and it's a good thing it is getting coverage so far & wide.  
I'm glad to have occasion to mention it on this day when so many have terrorism on their minds.  
And hey, now I can read the cover story and find out the truth about why Tom and Katie are SLEEPING IN SEPARATE BEDROOMS!  :-)

November 2004

"My Bride" has been included on this great double CD collection from Figjam Entertainment!  Check the RR Live page for 
info on Robin's appearance at the November 16th CD release party in NYC.
Here's the scoop from www.figjament.com:  

In March of 2004 during the recording of FIGJAM's first release, ABBAlicious, FIGJAM's President Jack Chen 
was approached by a number of artists about the struggle for the freedom to marry.  They wanted to help the struggle 
and explain to the world why marriage for same-sex couples was a matter of equality--and they demanded Jack to take 
part and help them. "What could we do?" they asked.

Jack and FIGJAM answered the challenge to bring you Marry Me, a double-CD compilation containing songs 
by over twenty gay, lesbian, straight and transgendered artists.  The first CD, entitled "Ceremony", contains songs 
celebrating love and commitment. The second CD, appropriately named "Reception", has songs that will rock any reception.  All the songs celebrate love across different musical genres: RuPaul's dancefloor anthem "Love Is Love"; Marcella Detroit's gospel-like "I Wish You Love"; the serenade "Marry Me" by Yolanda; the folksy "Jill and Jill" by Jenn Lindsay; the Motown flavored "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by Sade Pendarvis and Nicolas Ferrer and the R&B track "Bashert" by Ari Gold. These are songs for anyone celebrating the love between two people.

FIGJAM is proud to present Marry Me. Every artist donated the rights to their recordings specifically for this project.  
Many of the tracks have never been released before. The cross-section of artists on this CD shows that this is not a 
gay versus straight issue.  Marriage equality is not about right or wrong. As Daniel Cartier puts it, Marry Me is 
"an attempt to bring the focus back to what this issue is really all about.  That all of us, gay and straight . . . have this intrinsic desire to meet someone who'll understand us, make us swoon, and we can imagine growing old with."

FIGJAM Records is honored to provide these artists with the opportunity to voice their opinions about what they believe 
is a matter of fairness and equality.  FIGJAM would also like to acknowledge Aaron Cobbett, a talented photographer 
who has consistently given back to the community, and who donated his time in producing the front and back cover photos of the CD.
50% of proceeds from the wholesale price of the Marry Me compilation will benefit the ACLU Foundation's 
Lesbian & Gay Rights and AIDS Projects.  The Projects' goal is equal treatment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and 
transgender people, and people with HIV/AIDS.  That means no discrimination by government, no discrimination 
in employment, housing, schools and public places, and fair treatment of LGBT families and relationships.  
The Projects currently play a key role in the growing movement for marriage equality, with marriage litigation in 4 states.

October 2004

"Thursday Morning Afterglow" is released on German compilation CD, "Musicians Against Pop. Vol. 1 (MAP Sampler)."

Flying Solo


Some of you already know this; it is time to make it official.  The Robin Renée band as it has appeared 
over the last year is no longer.  Bassist Evan Danziger has left to pursue his own creative works, 
and Cyndee Lee Rule is busy playing space rock violin for several artists this summer and is hoping for more 
of the same.  Due to health issues, drummer Kevin McDevitt has needed to take time away.  
Thankfully, he is recuperating well, but will need some rest and relaxation away from the kit.  
I am doing fine, quite busy with planning upcoming shows, writing journalistically and creatively, 
and envisioning what the next incarnation of musicians will be about.  I am optimistic, and definitely 
pleased that since this band ran its course, it was allowed to devolve relatively painlessly.  
So unless otherwise noted, shows will be me flyin' solo.  So we'll see what's next... 
Anyone know a good tabla player?!  

With Love,
Robin Renée

R.I. P. Warren Zevon

Dear Friends,
I have been dreading this day for over a year now.  I've imagined what I might say on the passing of Warren Zevon, 
and I honestly still don't know.  I am just trying to let the reality set in, and to let the thoughts flow, bit by bit.  
This is a very sad day for me, to say the very least.

Warren passed away of cancer yesterday in Los Angeles.  He has been a huge influence on me- not that my songs 
necessarily sound like his at all, but he inspired me at a young age to love music, to enjoy the unexpected, and to 
keep on writing.  His humor also taught me how to lighten up and to not always take the business of songwriting 
so seriously, a lesson I still struggle with considerably!  It is good to be reminded of the funny, bawdy songs 
I used to write years ago.  Maybe you will hear that again one day.   

Anyway, I had the amazing opportunity to meet Warren in 1994 and he became a friend of mine.  I am forever blessed 
by the rare and seemingly magical opportunity it was to actually grow up, meet, and befriend a childhood idol.  
Even more wonderful, and sometimes difficult, was to slowly let go of the pedestal on which we put our heroes, 
and to see him as a whole, real person with all the foibles that humans have.  He was brilliant, intense, 
sometimes wacky, sometimes sweet, truly cynical, and definitely unique.  What a trip to know him.  I am glad that he 
enjoyed my music, too, and I will always remember him calling me with lots of thoughts on the "In Progress" CD.  
To relate to an artist by whom I have been so moved over the years on an artistic level like that was really amazing. 

I most importantly would like to say that if you have never fully experienced the music of Warren Zevon, please do.  
His self-titled album from 1976 is a bona fide classic.  "Excitable Boy" from '78 has the song most people know, 
of course, "Werewolves of London."  That is a fun tune, but there is so much more great stuff on that album - 
like "Accidentally Like a Martyr" and the beautiful "Veracruz"- and beyond into his entire body of work 
through the years.  I have always loved the "Sentimental Hygiene" and "Transverse City" albums.  
Warren was able to be inspired and energetic enough to complete a CD called "The Wind," over this last, 
difficult year which was just released on August 26th.  I am so glad that he was able to commit his struggles, loves, 
and goodbyes to words and music for himself and for all of us who listen.  He is truly a songwriter's songwriter; 
many artists came out to be a part of this last album including Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Emmylou Harris, 
and so many more. 
Do please give him a listen when you can.  The music lives.  Requiescat in pace, Warren.

With Love,
Robin Renée

R.I. P. Warren Zevon

Dear Friends,
I have been dreading this day for over a year now.  I've imagined what I might say on the passing of Warren Zevon, 
and I honestly still don't know.  I am just trying to let the reality set in, and to let the thoughts flow, bit by bit.  
This is a very sad day for me, to say the very least.

Warren passed away of cancer yesterday in Los Angeles.  He has been a huge influence on me- not that my songs 
necessarily sound like his at all, but he inspired me at a young age to love music, to enjoy the unexpected, and to 
keep on writing.  His humor also taught me how to lighten up and to not always take the business of songwriting 
so seriously, a lesson I still struggle with considerably!  It is good to be reminded of the funny, bawdy songs 
I used to write years ago.  Maybe you will hear that again one day.   

Anyway, I had the amazing opportunity to meet Warren in 1994 and he became a friend of mine.  I am forever blessed 
by the rare and seemingly magical opportunity it was to actually grow up, meet, and befriend a childhood idol.  
Even more wonderful, and sometimes difficult, was to slowly let go of the pedestal on which we put our heroes, 
and to see him as a whole, real person with all the foibles that humans have.  He was brilliant, intense, 
sometimes wacky, sometimes sweet, truly cynical, and definitely unique.  What a trip to know him.  I am glad that he 
enjoyed my music, too, and I will always remember him calling me with lots of thoughts on the "In Progress" CD.  
To relate to an artist by whom I have been so moved over the years on an artistic level like that was really amazing. 

I most importantly would like to say that if you have never fully experienced the music of Warren Zevon, please do.  
His self-titled album from 1976 is a bona fide classic.  "Excitable Boy" from '78 has the song most people know, 
of course, "Werewolves of London."  That is a fun tune, but there is so much more great stuff on that album - 
like "Accidentally Like a Martyr" and the beautiful "Veracruz"- and beyond into his entire body of work 
through the years.  I have always loved the "Sentimental Hygiene" and "Transverse City" albums.  
Warren was able to be inspired and energetic enough to complete a CD called "The Wind," over this last, 
difficult year which was just released on August 26th.  I am so glad that he was able to commit his struggles, loves, 
and goodbyes to words and music for himself and for all of us who listen.  He is truly a songwriter's songwriter; 
many artists came out to be a part of this last album including Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Emmylou Harris, 
and so many more. 
Do please give him a listen when you can.  The music lives.  Requiescat in pace, Warren.

With Love,
Robin Renée
