Althea René – Unstoppable

Detroit, Michigan born flutist Althea René had to decide if she should stay as a Wayne County Deputy Sheriff or as a full-time performing/recording artist. Fortunately, she let her heart lead the way toward music as her ultimate passion.

She started her solo career with the debut album Flute Talk in 2000. Soon the albums Chocolate Rush (2003), In The Moment (2006), No Restrictions (2008), In The Flow (2013) and Live In Detroit (2015) followed.

With Unstoppable (2017) Althea sends a clear sign of continuity and confidence in her musical future. Althea is joined on this album by Lin Rountree (trumpet), Turhan VanDyke (keys, trombone and horn arrangement), Mike Harrington, Allen “Snoop” Evans, Robert Skinner, Jamaal Andrews, Chris Ellis, Darrell “Red” Campbell (bass), Roscoe Henton, Darrell Crooks, Chieli Minucci, Joe Foster, Kenneth Morris, Tim Bowman, Frank Selman, LaVon Rushing (guitars), Marcus Hunter (drums and programming), Eddie Garcia, Barry Fry Jr. (percussion), Lew Laing, Derrick Harvin, Nicholas Cole (keys and programming), Joe Otis (drums), Alex Goss (keys), Greg Manning (piano), Marvin Bernett (steel pan), James Carter (sax and horn arrangement).
