From being a MySpace breakout star to having a Top 10 UK Album via a BBC Sounds nomination and a broken back – Ren Havieu’s songwriting journey has certainly been more eventful than most.

The singer/songwriter from Salford was first introduced to the world of music by her mother. While in sixth form college, she performed in Musical Theatre and entered several talent competitions before uploading some of her own recordings to MySpace.

Ren was soon discovered by a local music manager and introduced to acclaimed Producer Jimmy Hogarth. She began working on demos and was signed to Universal music when she was just 18. Ren started recording an album but in May 2011, but before it could be released, she broke her back in what she describes as a ‘freak accident’. After a 14-hour operation, Harvieu spent months recovering at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.

On December 5, 2011, the BBC announced that she had been nominated for their BBC Sounds of 2012 poll. After releasing the singles “Through the Night” and “Open Up Your Arms” her first album ”Through the Night” was released on Island Records on 14 May 2012, entering the UK album chart at No 5. She is currently working on her second album.
