"Renner's music reflects a natural beauty"
- Daniel Mescher, Colorado Public Radio
"Renner’s soulful vocals and R&B sense impart the music with a human quality not often found in [electronic] music."
- Josh Johnson, The Denver Post
Sean Renner continues to forge a unique musical path defined by the inimitably soulful sound world he creates for his groundbreaking recording projects, his captivating loop-based live performance, and his film scoring that combines organic-electronic production with orchestral instrumentation.
On stage, Renner has created an uncompromising loop-based performance with over 160 shows throughout the United States and Canada, in which he single-handedly brings to life the distinctive ethereal vocal stylings and electronic production he skillfully manicures on his records.
Renner's recent feature film and television credits include scoring Sterling Macer Jr.'s 2020 thriller "Double Down", Violet Wave Productions' heartfelt 2021 drama "Spring", and Cairo Smith's upcoming psychological thriller "Screwdriver". Renner has worked as a music arranger, orchestrator, and programmer on all three seasons of the award-winning Sky Television/Hulu series "Das Boot" (the sequel to the iconic 1981 film), which has received 9 German Television Academy nominations including “Best Music”. Renner also worked as an additional arranger, programmer, and orchestrator on the 2020 feature film "The Tobacconist", which received an Austrian Academy Award nomination for “Best Score”. He also performed and co-composed the film’s original song "Underwater”, which was nominated for a 2019 Jerry Goldsmith Award for Best Song.
Renner has also scored dozens of short narrative, documentary, and animated films including Jenna Caravello's award-winning short animated film "Frontier Wisdom,” which screened at Slamdance 2019, her short film "More Than Binary", created for the United Nations' "He for She" project supporting global gender equality, and Rezistor Films' short horror film "A Perfect Circle", winner of the Audience Award at The Method Fest Los Angeles, 2020.
Renner's most recent solo work is the 2016 album "Flora". Featured on Colorado Public Radio’s Open Air Spring 2017 music sampler and The Denver Post’s “Steal This Track”, "Flora" collects four double-sided singles that each represent a distinct period of Renner's time spent living in Colorado from 2010 to 2016. With “Flora”, Renner places his ethereal vocal stylings at the forefront, surrounding them with spacious, manicured electronic-organic music that puts him comfortably in the vein of other Downtempo Electronic, and Indie R&B artists like James Blake, Little Dragon, and Lykke Li. Flora creates a sonic environment that is warm and inviting, and that shines an intimate light into Renner's world.
Sean Renner is based in Los Angeles, California and holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Music Composition & Performance from the Herb Alpert School of Music at California Institute of the Arts.
