Miss Rae & The Midnight Ramblers @ The Rec Room WEM
Saturday, January 27 at
8882 170 Street NW
Miss Rae & the Midnight Ramblers' honeyed voice drips with Southern Soul, front porch Delta Blues, and a smoky Parisian nightclub Jazz feel. Raised on crackling vinyl, Billie Holiday and Big Mama Thornton were her initial vocal teachers. While Miss Rae's big and bold voice has been compared to the likes of Etta James. Although young at heart, Miss Rae is an old soul who will take you on a trip back in musical time.
A woman of wanderlust, Miss Rae spent 40 days on a blues journey travelling throughout the southern states. Following in the footsteps of Robert Johnson and Howlin' Wolf by singing on porches under the Mississippi heat. She then crossed the waters to France, living and singing in Paris for nearly two years.
Miss Rae channels her African roots by delivering a passionate and powerful performance on stage. She treats every concert as though it were her final show. At 26 years old, Miss Rae is currently based out of her hometown of Edmonton, working on a sophomore album with the Midnight Ramblers, to be released in June 2018. The Midnight Ramblers feature some of Edmonton's finest Blues players: Clayton Sample (guitar), Grant Stovel (drums), Chris Grapel (upright bass) and Septimus Alexander (tenor saxophone).
