Born on an island near Seattle, Rae Isla’s americana pop songs capture the turmoils and triumphs of being a young queer woman who’s unafraid of change. Rae got her start on the opposite coast in Brooklyn’s indie scene, collaborating on early releases with producer Gianluca Buccelati (Lana Del Rey Arlo Parks), pop artist Dominique, and Lito de la Isla of the band Los Rumberos. She self-produced and released her first EP in 2018. Rae now divides her time between Seattle, NYC, and Mexico City. Her debut album Another Life, made with Garrett Eaton (Holly Miranda, Gracie and Rachel), is a ten-track journey detailing the end of a relationship and the subsequent loss, exploration, and reinvention that happens afterwards. At times exuding warm earthiness and others biting introspection, Rae examines her own life while seemingly hovering just above it. Another Life sees Rae depart from her more pop-centric sound and settle into what she describes as her roots of folk, country, and americana. The album has been featured in Rolling Stone MX, Country Queer, Complex, Popdust, Out Front, Los40 and more. It charted #163 in NACC’s top 200.
