Performer

Renata Zeiguer

Renata Zeiguer is a Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter, the daughter of Argentinean and Philippine immigrants. An NYC native, she grew up playing classical and jazz music, beginning on the violin and the piano at age 6, and listening to her grandmother play ragtime and tango music obsessively on a baby grand during family visits in Buenos Aires. She began writing music as a kid, with mostly instrumental compositions that evolved from hourslong improvisations while seated at the keys after school. Initially drawn to composers like Prokofiev and Debussy, she grew to like songs that could be sung, falling in love with the great early 20th century American jazz standards, Brazilian tropicália, and the Beatles. She eventually expanded her compositions into lyrical song writing while studying at NYU, where she met long-time collaborator and producer of her upcoming debut, Adam Schatz. Since joining New York’s independent rock scene as an original member of Schatz’s band, Landlady, Renata has sung and played violin and keys on many projects including Ava Luna, Twin Sister, Leapling, Cassandra Jenkins, The Relatives (Ian McLellan Davis), Christopher Burke (Beach Fossils), Quilt, Skaters and Ex-Reyes.
