In a short time, Seattle Bluesy Americana singer-songwriter, Erin Rae Murray, has gone from a south end open mic to bringing her project, Erin Rae & the Heartbeets, to one of the biggest festivals in Seattle: Capitol Hill Block Party. In the mean time, she was highlighted by NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Contest, played in front of hundreds at the famed Emerald City club, Neumos, and won fans of all kinds with her welcoming anthems of personal growth. The Heartbeets play raw-yet-relatable music. You will hear entreaties to raise your chin and love yourself (and your fine ass!). Each of the band’s songs has a story, like traditions passed between family members. Indeed, they are embraces.
