Pop Country Duo Render Sisters Emanates Their Natural Sisterly Kinship On New Single “I Don’t Wanna Know”

“I Don’t Wanna Know” is out now everywhere digital music is available or at linktr.ee/rendersisters; new lyric video premieres Dec. 6 on their YouTube channel

WAV track available to Radio Programmers; make request directly to jwa@jwamedia.com

Render Sisters music and farm life backstory recently featured in special RFD-TV Market Day Report segment

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Pop-country duo Render Sisters, composed of best friends and sisters Mary-Keaton and Stella Render, continues their blossoming maturation and obvious sisterly kinship on their new single, “I Don’t Wanna Know.” The new tune finds the sisters singing about the unpredictable nature of relationships in the modern world. Releasing everywhere digital music is available on Monday, November 29 (or linktr.ee/rendersisters), “I Don’t Wanna Know” is the sixth single the teen duo has released since their emergence in 2020. 

The Render Sisters wrote the song with Nashville-based songwriter Doug Kahan (Trick Pony, Clay Walker, Jon Pardi) on a recent trip to Nashville, but the idea behind the song came from an actual relationship which Mary-Keaton had recently been involved in back in their hometown of Pine Bluff, Arkansas.

“I knew that I really liked this guy at the time, but I was scared that if I knew his past that I may not like him anymore,” Mary-Keaton admitted. “I wanted to get to know him for who he was, and give him a chance, but I have always been the type of person that gives someone the benefit of the doubt, too. Until they betray me, or prove me wrong in some way.” 

Stella was also cautious about the guy’s past, and encouraged her sister to remain the same way. However, the younger of the two was the primary instigator for turning her older sister’s relationship scenario into a song.

“Every single time I tried to talk to her about it, Mary-Keaton would always reply, ‘I don’t wanna know,’” Stella recalled. “So one day while songwriting, and talking about this guy again, Mary-Keaton again repeated ‘I don’t wanna know,’ and then I knew we had to find a way to spin this into a song about her situation.” 

Single Name: “I Don’t Wanna Know”
Release date: November 29, 2021
Label / Distribution: PCG Artist Development / Distro Kid
Written by: Mary-Keaton Render, Stella Render, Doug Kahan
ISRC: QZPLS2106309
Audio Produced by: Britton Cameron

Official Lyric Video: Coming Dec. 6 on YouTube

Render Sisters music featured on special RFD-TV Market Day Report segment
Mary-Keaton and Stella Render are the singing daughters of Chad & Dawn Render, who operate a 6,500+ acre corn, rice and soybean farm just outside of Pine Bluff, Arkansas. The Render family was recently featured by Tammi Arender in a special Market Day Report segment on RFD-TV about how their farm life and music life intersect. Click here, to watch.

About Render Sisters:
The Render Sisters are a young pop country duo from Pine Bluff, Arkansas who were influenced to become songwriters by their grandmother, a music teacher. Having graced many small town stages since elementary school, throughout their home state of Arkansas, these harmonious teenage southern songstresses are now ready for bigger stages. Their debut songs “Lost Boy,” & “Count On Me Count On You” premiered in 2020, with the song’s videos being featured on The Heartland Network, The Country Network, and WGN-TV. In 2021, Mary-Keaton and Stella Render were honored with their first set of major awards nominations as recording artists, earning a pair of Arkansas Country Music Awards nods in two separate categories; Young Artist Of The Year and Video Of The Year for their debut music video “Lost Boy,” and also becoming the first Young Artist Of The Year nominee to be nominated in a second award category. They also released several new songs, including the fun and upbeat country bop “Black Roses,” which was accompanied by another lively and colorful video directed by country music icon Pam Tillis. They’ve also made national TV appearances on RFD-TV’s Market Day Report and the Emmy award winning TV show, Teen Kid News. Prominent Music Row Magazine journalist and country music historian Robert K. Oermann concluded in his weekly column, “Their talent is way beyond their years.”

About Brei Carter:
Emerging crossover country and southern pop recording artist Brei Carter is proof that sometimes faith, patience and time pays off. Growing up in Monroe, Louisiana with a solid, southern upbringing, Brei’s family raised her on several authentic southern staples: the Bible, Lone Star Missionary Baptist Church choir, Charley Pride, Loretta Lynn, Aretha Franklin, and no shortage of familial love and devotion. However, before she became the dynamic and vivacious country singer she is today, Brei was busy earning a Bachelor’s in Business from University of Louisiana at Monroe, a Master’s in International Relations from Webster University, and a Doctorate in Theology from New Foundation Theological Seminary. She is also a proud Veteran of the U.S. Army, where she served as an enlisted soldier and as an officer. Having moved to Nashville soon thereafter, Brei has quickly established herself in the songwriters community as a smooth and sometimes edgy songstress who melds country, soul and southern pop into one fused style. Her first single at country radio “Gave Him A Girl” was immediately recognized as “cute and catchy” by country music journalist and historian Robert K. Oermann in his weekly DISClaimer review column for Music Row Magazine. With a growing catalog of singles, this young singer-songwriter is a welcome addition to the emerging new styles of the country music community.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Country and soul singer-songwriter Cameron DuBois’ unique artistry is solidified on a new single project called “The Light,” which the Alabamian songstress composed in two separate arrangements.

Canadian Teen Pop-Rockers Ready Set Bro Exhibit Their Brisk Rock ‘n’ Roll Side On New Single “Afterlife”

“Afterlife” available on all major digital music platforms TODAY or at linktr.ee/ReadySetBro; new lyric video premieres December 14 on YouTube

Ready Set Bro recently featured throughout Canada on Global News, and as rising stars on the Emmy-winning TV Show Teen Kid News, and Medium.com’s Authority Magazine 

CALGARY, Alb. – Emerging pop-rock ‘n’ roll band Ready Set Bro, consisting of teenage brothers in music Tavyn, Auslen and Kaplan Doell, have released their 3rd single “Afterlife” today across all major digital music platforms, or at linktr.ee/ReadySetBro. On the new tune the all-brother trio from Calgary, Alberta have firmly cemented their status as a bonafide rock ‘n’ roll band by leaning on a heavy dose of guitar, including a vibrant guitar solo and four-part guitar harmonies, all written and recorded by the Doell brothers. 

“This song provides a juxtaposition between an upbeat melody, while delving into the heavier subject matter of lamenting the loss of a relationship,” said Tavyn Doell. “At the same time, our lyrics blend a touch of light heartedness and humor with anguish and regret. To sum it up, it’s a classic story of a boy who fell for the wrong girl!” 

“Afterlife” explores the feelings of regret, and coming to terms with the fact that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side, by offering a clever reflection on the demise of a relationship. With a creative play on words, in this instance, “afterlife” symbolizes the reality of life after a breakup, and the subsequent discomfort and remorse brought on by a poor decision.

Single Name: “Afterlife”
Release date: November 23, 2021
Songwriters: Kaplan Doell, Auslen Doell, Tavyn Doell, Britton Cameron
Label / Distribution: PCG Artist Development / DistroKid
ISRC: QZPLR2101242
Producer: Britton Cameron
Buy/Stream/Listen: linktr.ee/ReadySetBro
Official Lyric Video: Premiering Dec. 14

About Ready Set Bro:
Growing up in a musical family, brothers Tavyn, Auslen and Kaplan Doell, have been immersed in the music scene since they were very young. At first, they watched from side stage, attending festivals, concerts and recording sessions with their professional musician dad, who charted songs on Canadian radio and was nominated for the Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMA) ‘Rising Star’ and ‘Group or Duo of the Year’, with country rock band Jo Hikk. The three brothers began their formal music training learning drums, vocals, piano and guitar. They naturally advanced to the instruments they personally connected with the most. Dedicated to their craft, the boys practice long hours, working to attain mastery on their instruments. When writing original material their focus is on strong melodies, 3-part harmonies, meaningful lyrics, and intricate musical passages on their respective instruments. Always willing to explore different genres, they have an appreciation for rock, pop, country, and jazz, settling into a sound that blends their musical influences. Along with music, all three brothers are enthusiastic flag football players and fans of both the CFL and the NFL, with a nod to this passion in their band name, Ready Set Bro.
