Album Notes
A multitalented composer, producer, audio engineer, sound designer, violinist, cellist, and vocalist, Rena Jones has been described as "The revered daughter of San Francisco's electronic music scene" -- OEM Radio.

Rena Jones’ third and most recent release “Driftwood” (2006) on Native State Records; features all mid-tempo, glitch and chill out. The album weaves cello, violin, woodwinds, electronics and rhodes through unique instrumentation. “Driftwood” was given the honor of the sixth most essential album of 2006 on NPR Echoes Radio. She has also released several tracks with such reputable international labels as Iboga, Spun Records, Aleph Zero and Native State Records.

Rena Jones live sets are a potent sonic session. She orchestrates her cello and violin over hand crafted beats melding the organic with the electronic. Her performance is a sophisticated example of the modern movement in electronic dance and ambient music.

Multiple tours around North America and Europe have lead Rena to perform at some of the worlds most established cutting edge electronic music festivals; The Glade Festival (UK), Shambhala Music Festival (Canada) and Burning Man (USA).

2007 has ignited to be a solid year with a successful tour in the Pacific North West with Plaid (Warp Records U.K.). Now back in the studio Rena is focused on refining her sound with an eclectic array of commissions coming in from around the globe.

As an adept and proficient, sound engineer plus “sage“ of stringed instruments, her work is in high demand. Rena has worked with many influential international artists from a myriad of genres. Notable artists she has worked with in the studio and on stage include: Rye Cooder, Alan White (John Lennon), Peter Buck (REM), Danny Heins, Dave Tweedy & Stephen Bradley (No Doubt), Brad Houser (Critter's Buggin' and Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians), Golden Arm Trio (A Scanner Darkly), Sylvia Massy (Tool, System of a Down, Red Hot Chili Peppers), Earl Harvin (Seal & Air), Mark Deutsch, Bluetech, Richard Devine, Sound Tribe Sector 9 and J.Viewz,.

Rena’s innovative repertoire also includes creation with dance troupes such as “Dance Mission”, award winning video games “Dance Dance Revolution, Life Line and Karaoke Revolution” and for films such as “Boom the Sound of Eviction”.

Always humbled by her art Rena Jones slips through the veils of defined sound. She is best known for her epic sunrise sets but can hold the stage for an evening set of deep mid-tempo grooves which take people into unknown realms of touching mystery and instrumental mastery.

Not An Average Album
Combining cello with electronic beats is novel enough to require a listen but this album is much more than just a novelty. Rena's music is moving, pensive, transporting. It's great through headphones when you really want to take a mental journey or through the speakers while you're getting your work done. Especially like Autumn.

Rena Jones has out done her self once again! This CD is a meditative movie soundtrack for the mind. She has an incedible sence of how music is supposed to effect you. I recomend a listen with headphones to catch every thing she gives to the listener.
