Author Biography - J J Reneaux
J.J. Reneaux Bio: Singer-songwriter, humorist, and author J.J. Reneaux combined her music, folklore, superstition, customs and true-life stories in her books and live performances. Cajun, Creole, Spanish, Irish, and Native American voices speak throughout her songs and stories, reflecting her own multicultural heritage and creating a colorful tapestry of life in the Deep South. Sassy and poignant, her performances were rooted in tradition yet remained surprisingly fresh. A natural comedienne, Reneaux lampooned modern culture with music, wit and honest-to-God true stories in contemporary performances for adults. Reneaux's lively school concerts and family shows delighted audiences of all ages with her multicultural mix of Southern folktales and music, as well as her original stories and songs. Known for her soulful singing and her gift for telling stories in original songs, Reneaux stories capture the rich rhythms and sounds of her native South. Her songwriting has reminded critics of artists like David Wilcox and Mary Chapin Carpenter, while her bluesy voice has inspired comparisons with Grammy Award winner Bonnie Raitt
