BIO


Hi, I’m Rae, a traveling bard.

Rae Isla an independent singer-songwriter from Bainbridge Island, WA, now living in Los Angeles, CA. Classically trained in cello, then studying voice as well as business at Berklee College of Music, Rae started her career in New York City, collaborating on early releases with producers Gianluca Buccellati (Lana Del Rey, Arlo Parks) and Garrett Eaton (Holly Miranda). She went on to co-produce and release her first EP and album while becoming a staple in NYC’s indie live music scene. Rae’s music has been featured in Rolling Stone, Billboard, Complex, and more. Her debut album “Another Life” was the 27th most added record in the world on NACC Charts.

In addition to traditional song releases, Rae is one of a handful of musicians pioneering the music web3 space via Blockchain and Web3 technology. She is one of the highest grossing independent artists in the space, and has given talks at SXSW, The European Union, and conferences around the world about her journey.

2024 marks a transformative year for Rae, highlighted by a string of new releases, national tour dates, and a recording of "Ezra," the title track for the upcoming Bleecker Street Films release starring Robert DeNiro, Bobby Cannavale, Rose Byrne, and more. Her eagerly anticipated second album, New Frontier, is set to release on July 19, led by the popular single “Miles and Miles.” This new music signifies a pivotal change in Rae Isla’s musical direction, as she delves deep into her roots, adopting an Americana sound that blends traditional elements with her unique contemporary flair. Rae can be seen traveling across North America this year, performing with social media gems Sammy Arriaga, Hans Williams, Brooke Butler, and more.
