Renew Artists, Imaging and Consulting
Celebrating the talent, history and future of 70's and 80's R&B, Jazz, Soul and Disco artists with a modern approach to imaging and consulting!
Established in 2011, Renew Artists, Imaging and Consulting, the brainchild of entrepreneur, Duane Gazi-White, was born out of what, at the time, seemed as a simple necesessity.
With the on-set of digital downloads and a new structure in how record labels marketed music, Mr. Gazi-White could see that established and revered R&B, Jazz, Soul and Disco artists were being neglected by record labels and their marketing teams. Award-winning artists with resumes full of awards, accolades and chart-topping hits were not receiving the proper attention they deserved.
In an epiphany, Mr. Gazi-White, whose love and passion for these artists could only be described as an obsession, decided to offer a special service for these vocalists; something different from the norm.
And Renew was born. It's function: to create a current take on imaging, styling and marketing for these iconic artists. Mr. Gazi-White has over 26 years of experience in the fashion industry with powerful connections to well-established photographers, stylists, make-up artists and hairstylists which make the Renew team the go-to source for any artist's imaging.
