Erin Rae was born and raised in Tennessee, starting in Memphis, then to Jackson, and then at age 11 moved to Nashville, where she currently resides.
Music has always been a big part of Erin's life. Her father and mother played folk music around town in Jackson, TN, and she would join them whenever she was feeling brave enough. For her, playing music has always been about sharing something great with the people she loves, and connecting in such a unique way that is otherwise hard to come by. "I went to college for a semester, and loved it", she says, " but i came home for Christmas break, and played an open mic, and just really felt at peace; like i had found my tribe." Erin then decided to take the next semester off, and create her own curriculum of vocal and guitar lessons. She began working with vocal coach Phoebe Binkley, who has turned out to be a wonderful mentor and guide for the creative process. Some artists she has worked with thus far are, Jon Vesner, Ian Lincoln, Gabriel Kelley, Jo'shua Odine, Daniel Kirkwood, Tim Boucher, Cori LeCain, Ben Ewen, and numerous talented friends. She is currently in a band called The Meanwhiles, consisting of Cori Lecain and herself on vocals and guitar, and Graham Bechler on drums.
" If all that ever comes of playing music are the wonderful friendships I continue to experience, that will be more than enough."
