Erin Rae and the Meanwhiles
Sunday June 25, 2017
Doors 6pm for 7pm Start
Venue: St Mary's Hall (Whitstable Umbrella Centre)
Growing up in Jackson, Tennessee but now residing in her adopted home of Nashville, Erin Rae and the Meanwhiles walk the line between old-school folk and modern Americana, filled with pedal steel, vocal harmonies, acoustic guitar, bright bursts of melody and plenty of space.
“With a voice that swoons and soothes, Erin Rae makes smooth-edged music for Sunday afternoons. Her arrangements — anchored by pedal-steel guitar and the steady strum of an acoustic guitar — may be rooted in modern-day indie folk, but the songs themselves rustle up comparisons to Joni Mitchell and Jackson Browne, two likeminded singers whose music packs a punch without breaking a sweat.”
