Texan Country Singer-Songwriter Savannah Rae
Emerging Texan Country singer-songwriter Savannah Rae blossoms on her 4th single, the carefree and melodic “Soft Place To Land”, officially released across all major digital music platforms on Friday, April 23. Savannah co-wrote the song with Britton Cameron and it perfectly marries her core Country music heart with her interests in progressive and Pop Rock n’ roll.
Although having a very grounded upbringing herself, Savannah felt compelled to compose “Soft Place To Land” a song which tells the story of her free-spirited wanderlust nature, as she sings “Hello freedom goodbye chains, the open road’s my middle name…” "I had an absolute blast writing “Soft Place To Land” with Britton Cameron,” said Savannah. ”We really wanted to encapsulate my feelings of not knowing where I completely belong, not having any real roots anywhere, and the crazy life that music has blessed me with.”
“While I am so fortunate to be able to live the life I lead, it sometimes gets me dreaming that I will eventually find a soft place to land in the future, and I look forward to that! But for now, "'Hello freedom, goodbye chains...'"
Savannah is also preparing to release a new concept video for the song over the next couple weeks. Shot in and around the Antique Capital of the World of Round Top, Texas, the video was produced and directed by award winning cinematographer J. B. Lawrence.
Born in San Antonio and raised just outside of Austin, throughout her adolescence Savannah was exposed to many types of music thanks to her parents who took Savannah to as many concerts and artistic experiences as possible. Savannah Rae was fortunate enough to be born into a music and arts loving family and has always received support from her family to follow her dreams. Savannah’s own journey to becoming a fast-rising entertainer and songwriter was inspired by a trip to an Evanescence concert in 2009. Not long after that, at age 11, she was enrolled into vocal and guitar lessons at GRAMMY award winning Michael Morales’ Rockstar Academy.
In a short time she began to give performances throughout Texas, from intimate venues near her home, to numerous talent shows, and all the way to the main stage of the Texas State Fair in 2016 where she opened for Jason Aldean. In 2017, Savannah became the first unsigned artist to be featured in the Roland Studio Sessions presented by the Roland Piano Company where she performed with her full band, the entirety of her EP.
Her growing talents have also led to features on San Antonio’s KENS-TV Channel 5, and Fresno’s KSEE-TV Channel 47. In 2018, she sang backing vocals for Demi Lovato on the American Music Awards, and on NBC’s The Voice, which again catapulted her visibility to a more national audience as a truly dynamic singer, songwriter and entertainer. She’s also served as a Brand Ambassador for other country lifestyle brands including Boot Barn, Country Outfitter, C Force Water by Chuck Norris, and other incredible companies.
Possessing an undeniable natural love for a classic Country sound, not surprising considering that she’s a proud Texan, she grew up admiring fellow musical statesman George Strait, who Savannah simply refers to as “The King.” She has also found a lot of inspiration, not only musically but in attitude, in fellow native Texan Miranda Lambert. Savannah even serves as a brand ambassador for Miranda’s clothing line, Idyllwind.“She is the epitome of a badass woman,” Savannah candidly proclaims. “She’s grit and grace all rolled into one perfect package. Of course being a Texas girl myself, I would expect anything less!”
Later in the summer she will release her next single, a sassy new song she co-wrote with Country music icon Pam Tillis, aptly named “Typical Texas Girl,” which pays homage to her proud Texan roots and the things which she loves most about her home state. “I am such a Country and Rock n’ Roll loving girl at heart considering those are the two main styles of music I grew up listening to and performing,”
Throughout 2021 Savannah will release a series of new songs that she wrote with iconic Nashville songwriters Britton Cameron, Holly Lamar, and Country music icon and Grand Ole’ Opry member Pam Tillis.
Savannah cheerfully explains. “I just hope my listeners experience an array of emotions while listening to my songs, because they were written from an array of emotional states I was in. I’ve got some rockin’ upbeat, fun and anthemic songs, but then I like to change gears to some deeper, slower, and incredibly meaningful ballads. I just hope that my listeners take away exactly the feelings I am conveying in the song. I love the ability that music has to tell a story,” Savannah said. “Even if you take lyrics out of the equation, and are left with only the chords, harmonies, melodies, and various instruments. They all sonically paint a picture in your mind, and connect to you on a deeper level.”
