Renee Goust

Renee Goust is a New York–based bicultural singer-songwriter, feminist, and activist. She was born in Tucson, Arizona, and was raised crossing the Mexican border daily to and from school, which strongly defined her identity as Mexican American. Goust began her piano studies at the age of 10, started writing music a year later, and taught herself guitar shortly thereafter. She studied vocal performance at the Universidad de Guadalajara in Guadalajara, Mexico. Goust gained international media recognition in 2016 with her viral feminist anthem “La Cumbia Feminazi,” which critiques the use of the word. After three home-recorded albums, she released her debut studio EP, “Septiembre,” in 2017, which features five songs in Spanish, including “La Cumbia Feminazi.” Renee has played stages in the United States, Mexico, and Europe. She writes music in English, Spanish, French, and Italian, spanning the genres of cumbia, ranchera, rock, folk, bossa, and pop. Her second EP, “Sad on Saturday,” will be released in 2018.
