BIO


Hi, I'm Rae. If you're here it's because you like americana-y music and the open road.

Rae Isla is an independent singer-songwriter from Seattle, WA. Classically trained in cello, then studying voice as well as business at Berklee College of Music. Rae started her career in Brooklyn, NY, 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 Isla is one of a handful of musicians pioneering the music web3 space via Blockchain and NFTs. She has sold over 2,000 NFTS (equivalent to ~55 million streams), attending conferences around the world to speak about her journey.

2024 marks a transformative year for Rae, highlighted by a string of new releases, national-wide tour dates, and a recording of "Ezra," the title song for the upcoming Bleecker Street Films release starring Bobby Cannavale, Rose Byrne and Robert De Niro. Rae can be seen traveling across North America this spring, performing with TikTok superstar Sammy Arriaga and Gen Z sensation Hans Williams. Her new releases like fan favorite “Stones” signify a pivotal change in Rae Isla’s musical direction, as she delves deep into her music roots, adopting an Americana sound that blends traditional elements with her unique contemporary flair.
