The hard-working Erin Rae is bringing her band to the UK and will play eight shows in eight days, beginning in London on November 4th and ending in Brighton on November 11, taking in Winchester, Glasgow, Newcastle, Saint David’s, Leeds and Nottingham.
With her latest album Putting On Airs Rae has crafted songs that feel fresh and original, and it is a record that reflects her own upbringing in Tennessee, including the prejudices and injustices that she witnessed as a child. According to Rae, “this album was born out of a need to do some healing work in my personal life, in order to address some fears and patterns of mine to allow my true feelings to come to the surface.”
Grammy Award winner John Paul White has signed Rae to his 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 was instantly transfixed. I was thrilled to find out her personality is as engaging as her voice and songs.”
Putting On Airs was co-produced by engineer Dan Knobler (Rodney Crowell, Tift Merritt) and multi-instrumentalist Jerry Bernhardt. Dominic Billett also served an integral role in the collective that worked together to create the album’s innovative and varied sonic pallet, providing the perfect soundscape for Rae’s soothing vocals, with the purity that has become her trademark sound.
