Renee Fladen-Kamm is a West Coast-based singer and vocal coach, who has been a member of the Sherwood Consort. Born Renee Fladen in New York City in the late '40s, she attended the High School of Music and Art (the predecessor to the High School for the Performing Arts, depicted in Fame). It was during that part of her life that Fladen served as the inspiration for Michael Brown to write the song "Walk Away Renee," recorded by the Left Banke and later redone by numerous other artists across the ensuing decades. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi
