Miss Rae and the Midnight Ramblers
Nurtured by crackling vinyl, living room jams, and music festivals. Edmonton-born singer and former Winnipegger, Miss Rae, bares her soul on stage. Fiery lyrics channel tales of former lives, while unveiling hushed histories riddled with hardships, valour and desire. She also explores her Métis/African heritage through song.
With Miss Rae is her new line-up of backing musicians: Clayton Sample on guitar (Rockin' Highliners), Grant Stovel on drums, Chris Grapel on upright bass (Pete Turland band), Septimus Alexander on saxophone (The Mad Dogs Experience) and Magic Chan on guitar.
Miss Rae has been compared to the bold voices of Big Mama Thornton, Etta James, Brittany Howard, and Amy Winehouse.
