Unlike ‘Blue Hounds’, a protest song in the classic mould, ‘Spencer Street’ is, as Ren explains “a nostalgic song reflecting on a relationship and life I had in Newcastle a few years ago. I wrote it whilst I was on the road a year or so after the break up. But ‘Spencer Street’ with her still felt like home to me.”
REN – real name Conor Owen – first came onto the music circuit with debut EP, ‘A Calling From The Shore’ which, to date, has received over 700K streams on Spotify. He recently supported Sam Fender, Westerman and Elvis Perkins as well as appearing as an extra in Bohemian Rhapsody.
