Daru and Rena are a dynamic brother/sister duo hailing from Michigan. The pair have steadily been making their way across the musical universe while consistently delivering their soulful and spiritually uplifting hip-hop jams. Their signature sound is recognized by the beat making talent of multi-genre musician/producer Daru Jones.
Brooklyn, NY-based Jones keeps busy as a member of hip-hop jazz trio, The Ruff Pack and as the go-to session and touring drummer for acclaimed acts such as: Talib Kweli, Grammy-recipient Jack White, Jon B, to name a few. Rena, the other half of this unique musical equation, lends her soulfully smooth vocals and wisdom-filled lyrics to their infectious tracks.
This project is produced by Daru with one track courtesy of the legendary UK producer, Marc Mac of 4Hero.
It’s clear that Daru and Rena know how to give you what you need as they continue to offer their spin on feel good music. Their latest LP #Honey will be released on November 12th as we look forward to another dose of dope beats and lyrical melodies for the soul. This project is extra special because it is the first Official RUSIC RECORDS retail release, available now via RUSIC RECORDS, iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby
