Keith and Renée
On the road to success, there are many Detours; and for Keith and Renée, the duo has embraced every single one of them. Its a route that has led the Winnipeg, Manitoba tandem to a genuine, earthy, pop-roots feel on its latest album- aptly entitled, Detours.
Keith Macpherson and Renée Lamoureux arrived at Detours after ten years, hundreds of gigs, three albums and captivating legions of loyal fans who have purchased thousands of their CDs. Keith and Renée's music can also be heard in commercials for AT&T, shows including, Degrassi The Next Generation and in movies such as Degrassi Goes Hollywood and the USA Hallmark movie, Saving Grace. Additionally, the duo has had its music placed in Radio Free Roscoe, 15 Love, Battle of The Sexes, The Real World, This is Emily Yeung and 22 MPH. On the radio, Keith and Renee received airplay on a number of commercial and college stations across North America complemented by national exposure on CBC Radio.
Opportunities often appear at a fork in the road; and for Keith and Renée, they took a road less traveled-partnering with a humanitarian organization- Free The Children/Me To We. The duo has traveled to Kenya twice and Dubai to share its experiences with over 100,000 students in 150 high schools across Canada. If the last ten years are any indication of success, look for Detours to go the distance for Keith and Renee.
