Show this Weekend – Huntsville, AL

flyerIf anyone of you friends, folks or music fiends out there live in or around Huntsville I’ll be playing a show this weekend NEAR YOU!  My fellow piano player and co-writer Robert LaSalle has asked me to share the show with him this Saturday.  I’ve got to say, he’s one of the most creative writers I know, and that’s why I love writing with him.  We’ll even be performing a few songs we’ve written together.

The Lumberyard Event Bar is the newest addition to the well-established Historic AM Booth’s Lumberyard property.  It’s the kind of intimate space that provides a true listening experience.  If you plan to attend, just make sure you send your email to inviteme@thelumberyard.info – it’s a requirement to come to the show! Once your email is on the list you may bring whomever you want.

On a personal note, I’m excited because this is the beginning of playing shows outside the Nashville area.  If you would like to see me play in your city, the main thing that will help me to do this is house concerts.  If you or someone you know would like to host a house concert, please reach out to me.

And to all you Huntsvillians – see you at the show!

Help Take Me to France!

A well-known performer in France by the name Téte has given me the opportunity to open for him when he tours the release of his new recording in the fall of 2015. The relationship and exposure with Tété would be a great boost in my career.  My band and I are ready to get out and start performing for a bigger audience. Growing a fan base, however, has a lot of catch-22’s and quite frankly what it comes down to succeed is money, awareness, determination and perseverance.

If this tour comes together as planned there is still travel, food and accommodations to cover. Like any business, investment dollars are an important part of getting off the ground and banks don’t loan money to artists that are not established. The estimated cost will come just under $10,000. This is just for a seven-day tour in France.

My husband Jonathan (who is also my manager, bass player, photographer, co-writer, you name it!) and I are not used to asking for support…but here we are!

So what am I asking?

CD SALES

As some of you are aware, I have two CD’s: “Reality Over My Head” and my latest release, “The Shy Gemini Sessions.” Both may be purchased from my website for $5 each in digital and physical forms. My music is also available on iTunes, though because iTunes controls the pricing, the album is $9.99.

LIVE PERFORMANCE

This is what I LOVE to do. And I especially LOVE doing House Concerts!  If you would like to know more about how to host one of these fun, intimate gatherings (which can be totally free for hosts) EMAIL ME and we’ll talk about it.  Also, if there is a venue in your town you would like to see me play, I’d love to know more about that venue so we can play where you are!

And thank you for your participation in the campaign to share my music!

FIREBREATHRECORDS HOUSE SHOW #3 – RAE HERING /MAY 22, 2014

Reblogged from FirebreathRecords:

Hey everyone!  Ford here.  Our next house show has been announced for Friday, May 30th.  It is $5 at the door and completely FREE online!  If you are outside of Nashville you can watch the show here.

To help you get to know the performing artists before the show, we are asking them 4 simple questions.  First up is Rae Hering!

 

FBR:  Have you ever played a house show before?

Rae: Yep, a few. I love them. It’s such an up-close, intimate experience for the performers and the audience members alike. They’re a great way to support independent artists and have a really unique encounter with the arts at the same time.

FBR:  What makes you most excited about the show on the 30th?

Rae:  I’m excited to be playing with some really talented, inclusive, creative, pro-active and community-oriented musicians and friends of mine!

FBR:  What do you think of live streaming as a way to watch concerts and interact with fans?

Rae:  As recorded music is becoming de-valued (down to 99 cents that is!), live music performance is becoming a valuable commodity. People are craving interactive, one-of-a-kind experiences more and more. Live streaming is an excellent way to make these one-of-a-kind performances accessible to many.

FBR:  Tell us your deepest, darkest secret….or a fun fact!

Rae:  Fun fact: I can touch my tongue to my nose…just sayin’
