This according to South Florida Country Music:
Ciara Rae is a 2nd generation, South Florida born and raised young woman, breaking into country music full force with her dedicated and incredible seven-piece band.
Playing piano and guitar has given her a leg up on her songwriting, and her shows keep getting better and better — with the reputation of great live performances, giving away free merchandise on stage & her uncanny ability to keep the crowds’ constant interest (never knowing what’s going to come out of her mouth), it isn’t a surprise everyone keeps coming back to shows for more!
"Especially because we're from South Florida, it was never cool for me to admit that I liked country music," she says. "So I kept it on a down-low from my friends. But I love singing, and love writing county music. I enjoy all types of music, but as an artist, I know I want to be a country singer, and I need to pursue it. When it's something you truly, truly enjoy, it's so much easier to let it flow out of you."
Rae attended the University of Miami's Frost School of Music, but left after she met a local band that needed a singer, "and I started really, really writing," she says.
"Although, actually, I've been writing since I was five, writing poems and stuff," Rae adds.
She has about 20 fully produced songs, and "hundreds" half-finished and tucked away in notebooks. Rae, who also plays piano and guitar, has opened for Charlie Worsham and Love and Theft at the Round Up, often performs at Seminole Paradise following country acts at Hard Rock Live and played the Great American Beach Party in Fort Lauderdale.
