Anna Rae’s lived in a bunch of places – California raised, then North Dakota, Minnesota, Wyoming, and even Australia – but with her straight-up introspective lyricism and supple, gliding vocals, she fits right in to Boston’s indie folk scene. Having toured this summer with The Kristen Ford Band, she’s just released her debut album, Peddler’s Wares, which she’ll be introducing at her official CD release party at Club Passim tomorrow night. It’s a charming, sweet folk-Americana sound with sharp and slightly astringent lyrics.
“always feel I’m an outsider
always feel I’m an outlier, outright liar
and I always feel how I’m outside of the flow
and I always notice all the places I do not go”
– Midwest Darlin’
