Frist Center Cafe
Fri, Oct 11 6:00 pm
You may have recently seen and heard Rae on Periscope! The platform chose to broadcast her live-streamed Sundays with Rae appearance, and that performance drew more than 66,000 viewers! (The news of her huge audience arrived WHILE she was playing.) Although Rae Hering (the Shy Gemini) calls her music Alternative Pop she remains a genre enigma. With her sophisticated melodic sense and eclectic songwriting style, this multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter creates intelligent music that ranges from playful to melancholy to funky. Since graduating from Belmont University with studies in piano and composition, Rae has recorded two projects to her name, most recently her 2014 release "The Shy Gemini Sessions." This unique double EP features two versions of seven songs; side A is recorded with a band while side B captures her as a solo artist. She shares the story behind her songs in her blog of a similar title, "Adventures of the Shy Gemini."
