ITN CD cover 2.jpg

New album, 'Is This Now?', now out and available on all streaming platforms!

Rena Guinn is a singer songwriter at heart. Her love of folk, old-style country, rock and roll, blues and americana, deeply influence her music. 

 In 2021 she released her debut EP, titled, 'Shine.' Recorded at Sunwood Recording in Trumansburg NY with owner and engineer, Chris Ploss. She was accompanied by many talented musicians from the Ithaca area. This EP was produced by musician and Producer, Bill Ring.

Rena Guinn performs locally in the finger lakes region of New York. Sometimes solo, sometimes with acoustic accompaniment or with her new electric band, 'Rena Guinn & The Gentlemen', an all-star group of the Ithaca area.

 She currently resides in her little cabin just outside of Ithaca. When she is not performing, she's writing songs, dancing to live music, gardening or doing carpentry.

She just released her first full-length album, titled, 'Is This Now?' Working again with producer, Bill Ring and Chris Ploss at Sunwood Recording.

 This album introduces a new 'electric' side of Rena and also goes back home, in a few songs, to the roots of acoustic music. 

Let Me Go To Waste

"Rena Guinn sings like an angel and writes like the devil. Every so often a performer comes along who can tell your story by telling her own. She writes what she feels, and somehow, it's exactly what you feel. She sings from her heart, and it's yours that is speaking. It's a gift given to only a few, like Rena.

I could tell you about her Dad who gave her the songwriting bug, or about her brother Adam that carries on the tradition, or about her mother, who is an artist, or maybe about how she built her own house out of straw. (No 3 little pigs joke, please.) But, above all, it's the music that matters. So don't listen to me, go listen to Rena Guinn. She has what you need."

-Bill Ring, Musician and producer

"Simply put, Rena Guinn is from another time and space. Her soulful voice and heartfelt songwriting will take you there. From the depths of loss to the rising sun, she is qualified to move you."

Cosmic Theo, Musician
