Erin Rae is an Americana artist with a lovely voice. She writes these classic songs that you immediately connect with. Reminds me of another Americana artist who just put out a stunning album, Courtney Marie Andrews. These ladies make it look so easy. Here’s some more info on the artist.

Rae, whose genre-fusing mix of traditional folk, indie-rock, and 1960s psych-rock production has landed her collaborations with artists like Margo Price and Andrew Combs, steps into the spotlight with ‘Putting On Airs’, already landing the critical attention from influential music media, including Noisey, Nashville Scene, Vulture, Rolling Stone and NPR. Rae recently appeared on World Cafe Nashville, performing tracks and chatting with Ann Powers about the major themes of the record, including mental health, personal growth and healing, and reflections on the prejudices and injustices that she witnessed as a child growing up in Tennessee in the 1990s. Discussing the forthcoming record, Powers noted that “Putting On Airs augments Rae’s natural grace with subtle strokes of Mellotron and pedal steel, recalling the dreamy folk-pop of artists like Jackson Browne or even the Carpenters.”
