Erin Rae's October/November European tour coming up

24-10-2019

Tennessee native Erin Rae coaxes cinematic drama from within the intimate spaces of her finely crafted songs. Her second album,Putting on Airs, was released last year and has added to her growing reputation as an artist of consequence among her Nashville peers. 

Erin Rae learned early to ride waves of small successes, using each as fuel until the next one came along. “One time, a church sign on West End said, ‘Don’t quit, keep playing,’ ” she recalls. “And the next day it was gone. I still don’t know if I made that up, but I needed it.”

Rae was born to musician parents in Jackson, Tenn., and moved to Nashville with her family in 2001. Although she was still shy about her musical pursuits, her dad gave her a Martin 000x1 acoustic guitar as a combination 18th birthday and high school graduation present and taught her the C, D and G chords. Then, she says, “My older brother took me to an open mic at Cafe Coco, and I basically stayed there for two years.”

Rae is a thoughtful and introspective songwriter whose 2018 album Putting on Airs helped her land a nomination for Emerging Act of the Year at the 2019's Americana Honors and Awards. Still, she feels like something of a late bloomer. “My friends and peers that had the guts to move here in their early 20s or earlier always seem so brave to me,” she says. “I was lucky to land here.”
