Originally from Iowa City, IA, now Charleston based singer-songwriter, Sam Rae, brings her classical roots on the cello into a unique blend with folk-rock. Currently on the road with her own band and as a cellist for Brandi Carlile, she has also collaborated and toured with Elephant Revival and Gregory Alan Isakov. Sam Rae combines the traditional feeling of folk with her incredible vocals and Joni Mitchel inspired lyrical delivery. Her lyrics and stage presence are where she really shines, telling stories that garner a feeling beyond her own. With roots in improvised cello looping she blends the traditional landscape of songwriting with the many musical textures of the cello, guitar and vocals. She will be releasing her next full length album in 2020 recorded in Seattle, WA.
