Bio / info
Renaissance was originally formed in 1969 by ex-Yardbirds guitarist / vocalist Keith Relf and drummer Jim McCarty, who wanted to explore a new sound blending elements of rock, folk and classical music. They were joined by bassist Louis Cennamo, keyboardist John Hawken, and vocalist Jane Relf. This lineup recorded the first self-titled album and most of the second album, Illusion (1971). A rapid series of personnel changes followed. Guitarist and composer Michael Dunford first appeared on Illusion. Before his departure from the band Hawken recruited new vocalist Annie Haslam, who became the group's best known singer. In the late 70s, much of the original lineup (with Jane Relf) reformed under the name Illusion.
