L'Renee Musique Inc was founded by Lori (L'Renee) Hollins born of a broken home to a once alcoholic musician father and once aspiring photographer turned bank teller from Detroit, MI.
After being told for almost 10 years that she was "too small", "too fat", "sang too well", was "too dark", "couldn't write" and a slew of of other limiting factors that would supposedly not allow her chances to bring her music to the world began her own music label L'Renee Productions (2006) which has now become L'Renee Musique Inc. (2007) a record label with affiliates Melted Disc (www.melteddisc.com), CD/DVD duplication and distribution center; Detroit Housing Relocation, real estate investments/property management; and Deanna Bananna (clothing and t-shirt designs).
L'Renee's fan base has grown since 2006 to over 10,000 patrons through myspace (4,695 as of 03/12/08), facebook (496 as of 03/12/08), blackplanet (1,722 as of 03/12/08), and her official website (2,600 as of 03/12/08).
Her listeners have streemed her music over 190,000 times between myspace and blackplanet (blackplanet:140,533/ myspace 50,915 as of 03/12/08). These stats do not include streeming through lastfm, rhapsody, groovemobile, groupietunes, emusic, amazon, itunes, ilike, virb, soundclick and other music websites and blog communities internationally.
Since the launch of her first project, L'Renee has distributed her music approximately 4,000 times. This number includes statistcs from both projects distributed digitally and with physical cd sales in North America, Europe, Africa and Asia. With each semi-monthly live performance and web traffic of over 25,000 hits per month to www.lrenee.net (taken from data collected by nimbit web services), that number continues to grow.

Her style is growing among fans as she has been featured in "Vibe" Maganize (December 2007), "Urban Mainstreem" Vol 36 (November 2007),on BlackPlanet.com, Soulisms and the list continues to grow.
Pure zeal is exhibited in every soulful word L’Renee sings. Through her lyrics and soul-stirring, energetic delivery, she creates a true euphoric experience filled with the pain of losing, highs of discovering a new love and every emotion in between. Experience her for yourself…
