Charlston based singer songwriter, Sam Rae brings her classical roots on the cello into a unique yet familiar dance with folk-rock. Currently a cellist for Brandi Carlile, she has also collaborated and toured with Elephant Revival and Gregory Alan Isakov. Sam Rae’s music tells stories of her spacious upbringing in Iowa, and her influential and ever changing identity as a queer and gender fluid creative painting a landscape that compliments the many musical textures of the cello, guitar and her vocals. Amidst these sonic textures her conceptual storytelling soars above her as Sam Rae finds a the gentle romance between the feeling of nostalgia and unhinged creativity. She will be releasing her third full length album this summer.
