RAE RADICK ROCKS
Rae Radick is the Singer/Songwriter that needs to be on everyone's radio! Find out WHY!
WHAT IS THE HOT SOUND IN YOUR CITY RIGHT NOW?!
Right now it’s all about the live music because the COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted. When I go home to see my family in Pennsylvania the country/pop scene is playing in most venues. Country music has always played a part in PA but it seems mostly everywhere now.
New York is still a melting pot of people and sounds, so to answer “what’s the hot sound in your city right now” depends on what street and venue you go to. Lots of cover bands are doing well in the East and West Villages, and it seems singer/songwriter places are tailing not far behind.
What hot sounds in the city should fans be listening to of yours right now?
Keep ‘Em Guessing, In A Memory, and Blur The Lines. Most people seem to be resonating with these songs the most, and I get lots of compliments about them
How has the reception been to new music?
New music has been as hot as ever during this COVID-19 period. It’s been hard to perform new music in the winter months because of the lack of events due to restrictions. The formula us musicians have adopted seems to be: release new singles throughout the fall and winter months and use spring, summer, and early fall to perform as much as possible before restrictions get implemented again. Now more than ever I think people are more open to new music because it’s a way to socialize and connect again.
What are you looking forward to most when you perform in front of an audience this year?
Connecting with live audiences again and meeting new fans. Our job as performers and songwriters is to connect with people. Now that live shows and festivals are starting up again, I am so excited because I can do my passion. I love looking at audience members in the eyes and connecting with them as I sing.
What was the intention set for your music?
My intention is different with every song. Keep ‘Em Guessing is about fun, female empowerment. In A Memory is about a bittersweet, past love. Circle Game is about social media’s effects on mental health. Who You’re Meant To Be is about embracing the shadow parts of you. Although I could go on and on about each of my songs, I think you get what I’m trying to say.
If I had to reflect on every song I’ve written and see the common thread, I would say they all revolve around a vulnerability, societal truth, and growth factor about honoring who you truly are.
What was the most important message to impart with your music?
Figure out who you truly are and what you’re most passionate about… and do that! Forget society’s rules about marriage by 30, making six figures equals happiness, and if you have a million followers then you’re valuable. Everyone is made differently to bring something new and beautiful to this world. So don’t let others put you down or convince you of something that doesn’t align with your gut.
How do you want your fans to treat themselves after listening to your music?
I want them to feel inspired enough to ask what song spoke to them the most, and take a deep look inside to inquire why. I love making people think, grow, and live to their fullest potential. So I would hope they not only feel inspired but empowered to live honestly, unapologetically, and that they are incredibly unique and loved.
What is a song of yours that you have on repeat right now to set the mood for 2022?
John Mayer’s “New Light.” I think John’s new album is incredible, and reminds me of the great sounds, opportunities, and possibilities 2022 will bring.
