NYC Album Review – Elmore Magazine

“As a songwriter, [Miss Rae's] ability to venture into dark, confrontational material beyond the usual blues fare sets her apart from the crowd. With deep musical roots and a willingness to take risks, Miss Rae brings a refreshing spirit of innovation to the contemporary blues scene.”
- Jon Kleinman (Elmore Magazine 2014 March/April Issue)
