Ren Lawton is quickly building a reputation for writing masterful songs with musical substance. Born in to London's East End with Irish and Liverpudlian parents but now calling Newcastle home, it's fair to say that his songwriting has been forged in hard working communities where story telling is an art form.
Lawton’s 2017 debut release ‘A Calling From The Shore’ reflects upon an adventurous and searching period of time living out of his van around the UK and Europe. It's clear to see that audiences have really connected with Ren’s yearning for exploration as ‘A Calling From The Shore’ has received 1.7 million streams on spotify since its release. 2022 saw the release of Lawton's debut album 'Today Today Tomorrow' as well as his first UK headline tour.
Having recently supported Old Sea Brigade, Dawn Landes and Dana Gavanski alongside coverage from Clash, For Folk's Sake, Thank Folk For That and after receiving numerous BBC 6music spins, Ren Lawton is preparing for the announcement of a special project to be released in 2024.
