Biography

There are at least 2 artists called Rench.

1).
Rench is an independent producer, songwriter, and musician that has been creatively breaking the boundaries between Americas top two genres since the turn of the millennium. The 2002 release of Above Market Value under the band name Battlestar and subsequent string of live performances garnered praise from the New Yorker magazine, Vibe magazine, New York Daily News, and more. From the cohesion of live performances, the collaboration of band members as Battlestar America, and later B-Star, resulted in the release of What We Do, a 2004 group EP that captivated a growing local fan base. The energetic honky-tonk hip-hop swagger of B-Star was given a counterweight in Elkhorn Riders, a studio EP of ambient, downtempo traditional country trip-hop remixes released as a solo Rench project in 2005. These two EP’s marked the start of a constantly growing catalogue for Rench Audio, a specialty production house and independent record company showcasing music being recorded at Rench’s own studio. In early 2006, Rench garnered more praise from local press with the staging of the world’s first “Country Hip-Hop Festival”, held at Brooklyn premier venue Southpaw, and featuring hip-hop and country acts on the same bill, plus integrated country-hip-hop sets by Rench, B-Star, and UK artist Eminemmylou. The end of the year will see the release of Life In Mean Season, a Rench studio album with 20 tracks that feature a slew of talented country musicians, hip-hop DJ’s, and a strong dose of Rench’s talent at writing and producing subtle and nuanced combinations of the urban bang with the rural twang.
