RAE, a heavy alternative rock trio hailing from Conroe, Texas (North Houston) is attracting quite a bit of attention with their infectious blend of radio-friendly melodies, aggressive guitars, and positive lyrics. RAE combines a steady diet of cutting-edge rock and roll, influences from a broad range of artists, and a finger on the pulse of today's indie rock scene. Leading the helm with her dynamic stage presence and aggressive vocals is bassist and lead vocalist Kelly Robison. Jess Mitchell adds his signature power playing on drums, while Bryan Jones and his massive wall of guitar round out RAE. Described as "music that motivates", Rae's ultimate goal is to reach as many people as possible through their music and live performances. Energetic and up-tempo numbers like "Seize the Day" allow us to take control of today and to live in the moment, while melodic rockers such as "Find Your Way" discuss everyone's relentless search for answers and the truth.
RAE has had the pleasure of performing with National Acts such as Disciple, Pushmonkey, Jars of Clay, Harlow, Podunk, The Benjamin Gate, Earthsuit, Sidewalk Slam, Buck Enterprises, Calibretto 13, 38th Parallel, Kutless, PartTime, Ill Harmonics, PAX217, Spoken, Seventh Day Slumber, and Animal Couch. Additionally, RAE has headlined numerous shows and festivals. 2004 will find RAE performing over 100 dates throughout the country. RAE was one of only two (2) rock bands chosen nationally to perform at the GMA Spotlight Showcase in Nashville, TN, February 2002. In 2003 RAE released their debut EP which garnered "Honorable Mention" as one of the top Independent Rock releases of 2003 from The Indie Rock Show/Indie Artist Review.
