Miss Rae & Zander
Although young at heart, Miss Rae is an old soul who will take you on a trip back in musical time. Her 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. A woman of mixed ancestry, she channels her African roots by delivering a passionate and powerful performance on stage. She treats every concert as though it were her final show. After 5 years of performing professionally, Miss Rae has been compared to the likes of Etta James and Amy Winehouse.
A woman of wanderlust, Miss Rae ventured out to the Southern United States for 40 days on a ‘Blues Journey’, from Nashville – Clarksdale – Memphis – New Orleans. She followed in the footsteps of Robert Johnson and Son House by singing on porches under the Mississippi heat. At 23 years old, Miss Rae decided to pursue her dream of singing in France, so she left Canada and moved to Paris, living and performing in the enchanting ‘City of Lights’ for nearly two years.
Now, at 26 years old, Miss Rae resides in Canada, presently based out of Edmonton and working on writing her sophomore album, Wild Rose, to be released in June 2018.More Event Details
