Rae Sam - The Great Escape

Rae Sam Releases Debut Album ‘The Great Escape’

Welsh Country pop singer songwriter Rae Sam has released her debut album ‘The Great Escape’, available now on all platforms. She began writing at the age of 9 after learning the piano and guitar. Eventually, her Celtic roots led her to share the stage with similar artists in the USA. It was in Nashville that she graciously had the opportunity to record with Chester Thompson. After falling in love with Country music on that tour, she headed to the studio and has now released her stunning debut album.  An exciting combination of Country pop tunes, funky beats and  Celtic wildness. It follows Rae Sam’s honest journey of breaking  free from holding back and thanking those that helped. Finally, the powerful moment where she fearlessly decides to chase her  dreams and encourages others to do the same.

Rae Sam has been exposed to live music that was rooted in country, Celtic and folk from a young age. But as she grew older, she became deeply connected to the rawness of Country music and its unique power to ‘hit the soul,’ accept brokenness and heal at the same time. A remedy that she had used in her own life during the toughest of times.

Since getting married and moving to England, Rae Sam’s music has taken her all over the UK and all over the world; from Israel, to Croatia and the USA. During a month tour in the USA, she shared the stage with those who filled her music with a country sound and she watched her songs come alive. After playing with musicians who had toured with the likes of Dolly Parton, Van Morrison and Phil Collins; Rae Sam was inspired to improve her storytelling skills and create emotionally impacting music. Although she had recorded in studios over the years, it was often for someone else’s project. But whilst in Nashville, she had the privilege of recording her first EP with Chester Thompson (from Genesis).

…So, as she sat down with producers in that music filled studio to talk about her first album ‘The Great Escape’, there were clear distinct sounds that she wanted. Country to touch the soul, Celtic for that wildness of her heritage and finally pop, with a touch of funk, to make you want to dance! The combination was simple – it had to be everything that Rae Sam loves.
