Hi, I'm Rae. If you're here it's because you like americana-y music and the open road.
Rae Isla 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.
Rae was asked to record the title track for the upcoming film ‘Ezra” starring Robert De Niro, Bobby Cannavale and Rose Byrne, which premiered at TIFF 2023 and will be commercially released in 2024.
