Reny (J. Renard Collette) on vocals, National resonator and other 4, 6 and 12 stringed guitars, keys, bluesharp, lapsteel, production and songs, Lil’ Bell (Maribel Landaetta) on drums and vocals and Bako Billy (Billy Fuller) on upright bass. Reny, Bell (together for 12 years) and Billy (added in 2003) blend bluesy/funky finger-style and slide guitar, original poignant songwriting and upright bass heavy grooves, to create an eclectic sound limited only by Reny''s influences. Drawing mostly from pre-war blues, old school hip hop, roots and dancehall reggae, Sidestreet Reny and co. bring an eclectic yet familiar sound all their own. Reny''s syncopated, soulful (singing or rapping) vocals and Bell''s high harmonies have the power to take you all the way from a delta juke joint to a Brooklyn street corner before the first song is finished.

Over the years Reny has traveled extensively and shared the stage with such acts as A Tribe Called Quest, Gang Starr, Xanax 25, Bass and Trouble, Paula Fuga and Ice Cube (to name a few) and played at festivals and clubs throughout Scandinavia, Germany, and the U.S. Reny (aka J-sun or Jason Fine) has been featured on various international dance, pop and hiphop remixes and singles including Brian McKnight - I Can''t Go For That, Vanessa Williams - The Comfort Zone remixes, Inner Circle - Bad Boys remix and a string of European releases. Reny has also accumulated an impressive back catalog of songs and recordings including 5 commercially unreleased cd''s (gigs and shows only).

From sneaking into punk shows at the age of 12 to chasing the Grateful Dead at 14 and living on his own in Europe at 16 (as a sponsored skater/rapper), Reny has lead the kind of life that deserves to be written about... and that he does, with an honest poetic voice and passionate conviction. From songs about love and hate to art and social commentary to free-form rap lyrics ranging from boastful to political, Sidestreet Reny is truly a troubadour without confines.
