Andi Rae Healy

Brooklyn-based Singer/Songwriter Andi Rae Healy has been a mainstay on New York City’s indie-country scene for nearly a decade.  Her debut album, I Guess I am a Sinner–featuring contributions from artists as diverse as pop princess, Cyndi Lauper and indie darling, Jill Sobule–was released in 2006 and earned rave reviews for its deep melodicism, lush production, and its brutally honest and painfully heartfelt lyrics.

 

In the ensuing years, Andi Rae has performed across the country, been a finalist at World Cafe Live’s Philly Rising Showcase, played shows for the Honky Tonk Angels and Brooklyn Country, as well as hosting and organizing annual Earth Day shows and fundraisers to support the environmental causes that she cares so deeply about.

 

In 2012, Andi Rae launched a successful Kickstarter campaign, raising over $12,000 to record her long-anticipated follow up: a hard-driving, boot-stomping effort (featuring live-in-the-studio performances by her crack band, the Back River Bullies) with hints of 90s rock and classic country entitled If You Want to Be My Man, which after three years of painstaking work, was released on September 18, 2015.
