Nashville Americana singer/songwriter Renée Wahl has a secret — countless secrets, actually. In addition to her bandmates, known collectively as the Sworn Secrets, Wahl accumulated a career full of others as a captain in the U.S. Air Force with top-secret clearance when assigned to the National Security Agency.
Perhaps her duties in the world of covert operations helped her hone her authenticity as a songwriter and as a performer. So does playing the very stages in East Nashville that are the epicenter of the burgeoning singer/songwriter-centric scene that’s being described as Nashville’s New Traditionalist movement. And now, the Pennsylvania native is carving out her own space at the recently rediscovered intersection where authentic Nashville songwriting meets Music Row.
Inspired by groundbreaking artists including Neko Case, Buddy and Julie Miller, Linda Ronstadt, and Ryan Adams, Wahl deftly crafts accessible songs that explore the human experience. Few topics are off limits when it comes to Wahl’s powerful and personal approach to songwriting. For her latest EP release, entitled Sworn Secrets, Wahl enlisted iconic singer/songwriter and producer Buddy Miller to sing on the single “Wild Living.”
