Jetty Rae is a singer and songwriter originally from Northern Michigan. She has been singing, touring, and recording since 2004. Jetty Rae shared the stage with Sarah McLachlan and Miranda Lambert at Lilith Fair in Detroit where she was handpicked by Sarah McLachlan and Terry McBride as the featured local artist. Her latest album, “Can’t Curse the Free,” which was produced by Grammy Award Winning producer Mitch Dane, was released in 2017.
“Can’t Curse the Free,” Jetty’s most ambitious release to date saw a definite departure of style and sound. The evolution of her sound can be largely credited to Grammy award winning producer Mitch Dane and his mysterious and diverse interpretations of these songs. Lyrically and musically Rae steps out of previous boxes to unveil a more earthy, alt-country, dirty-folk album. With the latest release Rae demonstrates her ability to bend genre lines when the song demands a different skin. The lyrics are queen, and the album paints a picture of western landscapes, dusty heartbreaks and phoenixes that can’t wait to die and rise. Sonically expect textures of electric and acoustic guitars dueling with upright bass, synth pads, and tribal drum loops. Vocally Rae steps out of line with more soul, and grit to tell the stories that no one else is telling.
