Renell Shaw is one of the most unassuming and rawly talented artists picking the lock of London's tight-knit musical heritage. A new school boy, bringin' old school back, Renell already has an impressive CV, having worked with Orphy Robinson, Soweto Kinch, Nitin Sawhney and The London Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Student Symphony Orchestra, as well as performing with his band Descendants of a Quest.
I was lucky to work with Renell and fellow descendant Yao on a schools project in Hackney. They were inspiring characters and mature ambassadors for their craft. Check out the rest of the tracks on SoundCloud.
