Erin 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 – not to mention critical attention from the world’s top music media, including Rolling Stone, NPR, and the BBC -- is finally stepping out into the spotlight with Putting On Airs. A forthcoming NPR World Café session and a busy tour schedule, including spring support dates with the Mountain Goats and Margo Price, and an appearance at End Of The Road Festival in the UK, shows Erin Rae’s star is on the rise on both sides of the Atlantic.
Buoying the release is Rae’s reputation as an enthralling live performer, which has earned her the respect of Nashville peers and music notables alike, including Grammy Award winner John Paul White, who has signed her to his Florence, Alabama-based label, Single Lock Records. Rae joins a Single Lock roster that includes Nicole Atkins, St. Paul And The Broken Bones, and White himself, who said “When I first heard Erin’s compelling voice, I knew nothing about her. It was live, with no intro (she was opening for friends of mine), and I was instantly transfixed. I couldn’t wait to engage, and that’s something I very seldom feel, much less do. I was thrilled to find out her personality was as engaging as her voice and songs, and that she was looking for a home. I couldn’t be happier to be hitching our wagons together.”
SAMUEL R. SAFFERY
Samuel R. Saffery is a New Zealand indie folk musician who currently resides in Brooklyn, New York. He is inspired by his environment and finds New York City to be a rich, if not demanding, muse. His music comes from a place of honest learning, emotional growth and healing. He has a distinctive, melodic voice, which is as haunting as it is sweet. He has just released his first solo EP, Belong. The EP explores themes of identity, the subconscious world, human beings’ sense of place and their daily connections with others
Somerset born musician Rowe, has made her mark on the industry this year, with her release of her debut EP 'Neptune', this summer.
Rowe's sound creates an eerie atmosphere but adds the comforting tones of nostalgia, along with the simplistic accompaniment of guitar and piano, to create a new understanding of a modern day singer-songwriter. Her influences include the likes of Bon Iver, The Smiths and Daughter.
