Erin Rae releases new EP ahead of forthcoming tour

Nashville based singer songwriter, Erin Rae, and AUK favourite has released a new EP, ‘Putting On Airs Demos’, to celebrate the one year anniversary of her breakthrough record ‘Putting On Airs’. Along with the title track, the EP features 4 songs from the album, including ‘The Grand Scheme,’ ‘The Real Thing,’ and ‘Can’t Cut Loose’.

Praising ‘Putting On Airs’ last year Americana-UK said: “’s in her ability to explore the minutiae of human relationships that Erin Rae excels. Unlike a contemporary such as Courtney Marie Andrews who seems able to address both the personal and political (sometimes in the same song), Rae is able to navigate the personal with a capital ‘P’ just about as well as anyone working out of Nashville at present…. Although this is only a sophomore effort, it’s close to being fully realised: romantic addiction, the tension at the heart of relationships, the desire we all seek at times for approval and validation – this is an album rich in songwriting and quality lyric writing, all the while accompanied by Rae’s angelic vocals.”

Of the new EP Erin Rae herself said: “These songs were recorded at Jerry’s (Jerry Bernhardt – co-producer and multi-instrumentalist) house in Philly in the couple days after we returned from our first UK tour in 2016: After listening to everything Jerry played us in the van…it seemed only natural to try and make the new record together. I recorded acoustic versions, and after I went back to Nashville, Jerry recorded all the additional instruments which led me to trust him to make ‘Putting on Airs’ with me. These recordings are very dear to me, I think both of our performances are very natural and pure.”

Erin Rae is out on the road with Father John Misty, Jason Isbell and Dylan LeBlanc before heading to Europe in November (which includes 6 UK dates):
