Although Rae Hering calls her music Alternative Pop, she remains to be a genre enigma. With her sophisticated melodic sense and eclectic songwriting style, this multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter creates intelligent music that ranges from playful to melancholy to funky.
Since graduating from Belmont University with studies in piano and composition, this independent artist has recorded two albums to her name and is currently releasing monthly singles as a series called “Live at Pentavarit Studios.” She’s active on Patreon where patrons can not only download the Song of the Month but also get Early Access to her music and videos and take part in monthly VIP Live-Stream Shows.
As a performer averaging 150 live and live-stream shows a year, Rae captivates audiences with her sultry voice while moving between piano, guitar and accordion. From an early age, her classical piano training fostered in her a comfort of the stage and a love of sharing music - this is evident in the energy she puts into each performance. She’s recently launched Crowd Curated Concerts, a concept she’s forerunning which uses crowd-funding to promote and ticket her live shows. When she’s not touring she’s bound to be found doing live-stream concerts on Periscope where she plays a unique set of songs each show.
Rae puts her skills to use off stage as well. As an adaptable composer, Rae writes and records music for commercial spots including Singer Sewing Company and for films such as "Daddy's Little Girl" which made it to #1 on the iTunes Top Short Films Sales List. As an active co-writer, she has applied skills unbarred by genre including the pop ballad "It's Alright" recorded by MCA Music (Philippines) artist Solenn and "Rock Paper Scissors" recorded by folk/americana artist Anne Buckle. Rae can also be heard on session work for various artists in Nashville and is a versatile and experienced private music teacher.
Whether she's writing a new tune, recording in the studio or performing live, pursuing the creative adventure and making a meaningful connection with her audience are the driving forces behind Rae Hering's music.
