In case you missed it: Arum Rae live at Ortlieb’s

22 Sep

Warranted-Queen-EP-SMALL

Arum Rae is a singer-songwriter originally from Austin, TX now living in Brooklyn. I was excited to catch the Berklee College of Music graduate at Philadelphia’s intimate bar and venue Ortlieb’s last night. No stranger to the stage, Arum Rae has previously shared the stage with Rodriguez, B.B. King, Willie Nelson, and Gary Clark Jr. just to name a few. Her new EP Warranted Queen is a sensual heartfelt diary of songs that will make you feel and move. She writes her songs from life experiences and you can hear it in her voice and feel it in your bones when she performs live.

Arum Rae filled the venue with enough soul and heartfelt blues in her soaring voice to light up the room. Mix that with her gritty, raw, blasting guitar and roaring drums and you get a sound that can swallow annoying obnoxious bar talkers and leave them with their jaws on the floor.

Her bluesy, weathered, range-less voice sounds like the extension of a soul that’s lived a lifetime. The guitar is an extension of her whole being. The two hypnotize you and you forget she’s doing both so effortlessly.

A gorgeous girl (with a ring game and shoe game that is on point) blasted blues, soul and pure rock throughout philly last night and she’s coming for your town. Check out her tour dates below.

Philly show NOT to be missed xx: Saskatchewan at Ortlieb’s w/ Orca Orca tomorrow!!!

25 Nov

This week was a little crazy, I still can’t believe tomorrow is Monday. I worked a lot, but also had a great time being able to go home and see family for Thanksgiving, and celebrate two of my best friends (twins) birthday the night before. Catching up with friends from high school that are in different states right now was awesome, and I got to do that twice this week. It’s easy to forget how stressful work can be with friends that love to dance as much as I do.

On my normal routine walk to my favorite cafe/record store in Philadelphia, Milkcrate, I saw dollar records for sale outside. I was on the phone with my mom who was super confused why I kept mentioning it was freezing outside every five minutes. I shamefully admitted that I was outside scouring through the dollar records bin… “Oh no Cheryl, stop looking….dollars add up.” I said my reply which she already knew was following, “I know, but I…can’t…stop”. Thirty-five dollars later and 35 brilliant classics to add to my collection, I walked out of Milkcrate with a smile on my face and a tear in my wallet. I definitely broke out the Nile Rodgers classic albums I bought that night for a mini dance party at my house before going out with my friends to dance at the bars. Sometimes, there is nothing better than dancing to your own records in your room, and I can’t wait to listen to all my new finds.

Tomorrow is back to work for a crazy hectic week, but I definitely have some after-work fun to look forward to. Tomorrow night, Florida-based band Saskatchewan will be playing Ortlieb’s Lounge in Philly for…um, what? Only $5… Don’t mind if I do!

Saskatchewan’s music is super chill and dreamy, and I can’t wait to hear it live. Saskatchewan will be playing five more shows after Philadelphia on this tour including dates in North Carolina, Georgia, and ending in their home state of Florida in early December. Listen and download Saskatchewan’s music via Soundcloud below!

Don’t live in Philly? Make sure you check on Saskatchewan in a city near you!

Saskatchewan Tour Dates:
Nov 26 @ Ortliebs Lounge w/ Orca Orca, Philadelphia, PA
Nov 27 @ the Cave, Chapel Hill, NC
Nov 29 @ Apothecary w/ Sin Kitty, Asheville, NC
