Biography

Raina Rose, born Feb. 3rd 1982, is a folksinger (singer/songwriter) from Portland, Oregon, who now lives in Austin, Texas.

She has been on a national tour circuit since October 2005. She was a finalist in the 2007 Kerrville Folk Festival new folk competition, she received honorable mention in the 2006 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour competition and has been featured at the High Sierra Music Festival 2006 & 2007.

Her first solo album Despite The Crushing Weight of Gravity (released in 2005) was produced by Jim Brunberg at Mississippi Studios. Her second album The Prophet, The Panhandler and The Moon came out in February 2007 on 1% For The Planet, Threepin Records.

“Portland native Raina Rose is everything a young female folksinger should be. If occasionally a touch too naive or overreaching in her eagerness to express a surfeit of emotion, she’s always so sincere, sweet and disarmingly goofy and such a heckuva singer that one instantly forgives such transgressions with a grin. From her late duo the Gypsy Moths to her latest and best-yet CD, The Prophet, the Panhandler, and the Moon, her vocal, guitar and songwriting chops continue to flourish. Next week, she heads to Texas’ Kerrville Folk Festival as a finalist in their renowned New Folk contest.”

    I saw Raina live not too long ago and I gotta say I wish her album had a lot more of just her and her guitar. Oh well, I have high hopes for her next one :)
