Rae Radick often describes herself as “The Love Child of Stevie Nicks and Keith Urban, with a dash of New York City.” She’s a prime example of finding the balance of women’s struggle today: being fierce yet vulnerable, classy yet authentic, freethinking, and finding your path in a technology-based world.
Rae Radick has been a singer/songwriter since she was sixteen. Hailing from Bucks County, Pennsylvania she’s lived in New York City for the past eight years and tours internationally. She’s been featured on Front Range Radio, Q Star Radio, and numerous blog articles as “Artist of the Week.” She’s performed at College Mansion at the Hilton Hotel in Atlantic City, Fox and Friends, Shea Stadium, Intrepid Museum, Queen Mary in San Diego, Brooklyn Bowl, The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, Red Lion, and Pete’s Candy store to name a few. She also creates original music for feature films. Mixing her Pennsylvania roots with New York City’s spirit, her sound is a supreme balance of pop, country, and rock.
Her influences of Shania Twain, Fleetwood Mac, Keith Urban, Kacey Musgraves, Kelly Clarkson, and Maren Morris are transcendent in her sound and storytelling. Struggles of relationships, growth, nostalgia, and freedom are continuous themes that appear in her writing.

 

LYRICS:

 

He sat on a stool in the corner bar
His hat propped up and he smiled from afar
She fell for him then and there but he couldn’t tell
The soldier and the bombshell

 

Days turned into nights around the small town
He talked about his plans to settle down
I know, I know shouldn’t kiss and tell
About the soldier and the bombshell

 

A kiss for when she sang to him
No more wandering man again
Service dog and church on Sunday morn’
A rocking chair to clear the mind
A hideaway to light the fire
Charming home and white picket fence
I knew them all too well
The soldier and the bombshell

 

Grandpa would tell stories of that day
Nana’d laugh when he’d exaggerate
They knew when he kissed her on that stairwell
The soldier and the bombshell

 

A kiss for when she sang to him
No more wandering man again
Service dog and church on Sunday morn’
A rocking chair to clear the mind
A hideaway to light the fire
Charming home and flag by the fence
I knew them all too well
The soldier and the bombshell

 

Nowadays everything’s changed
There’s no stories like that anymore
But the bones remain the same
And love is something you can’t force

 

A kiss for when she sang to him
No more wandering man again
Service dog and church on Sunday morn’
A rocking chair to clear the mind

 

A hideaway to light the fire
Charming home and white picket fence
I knew them all too well
The soldier and the bombshell
I knew them all too well
The soldier and the bombshell

 

 

Tell us what your fans are saying about your music.
My favorite part of my job is hearing how much people like my new song. A veteran wrote to me saying ‘The Soldier and the Bombshell’ made them tear up because they identified with the lyrics- specifically “service dog” and “flag by the fence”. Another fan reached out to me saying they play this song when their dog is acting spastic because it calms her down. Some people have sent videos of their children dancing and/or singing along to this song.
People have reached out to me saying this is my best song yet, and the music video is simple and beautiful.

 

Tell us the factors you consider when writing a song.
Writing is a personal and spiritual experience for me. When I write it’s usually at night with incense in the air, a candlelit, and lights dimmed. Whether the tune comes first or the story, I try to align the two so they complement each other. For example, if it’s a sad song I’ll pair it with more minor chords. If it’s a pop song then I’ll lean towards major chords.
However, the common thread no matter what song I write is I always ask myself what I’m trying to say. What is the theme? What am I trying to do with this line or this picture I’m creating? If I can’t answer those questions then I know I need to get more specific, or the song will be shelved.

 

Discuss the production of the song.
This song was fairly easy to produce. From day one I told my production team I wanted this song to be simple and stripped down. I wanted the story to be the focus. Originally I wanted only vocals and acoustic guitar. Then after hearing it, I realized it was missing a steel pedal – so I contacted my friend who laid down a few tracks. With the guitars finalized, I realized a touch of piano would be a nice element to ghost behind the vocals.
It was one of the easiest and quickest songs I’ve recorded due to the simplicity of it all.

 

Tell us your best mood to create a song.
I have to be vulnerable. I believe when one is vulnerable, the truth will follow. So before any writing session, I access a vulnerable state, so I’m clear in my message and theme.
Depending on the song I’m writing, sometimes I’ll play an artist that moves me in the way I want to be moved. For example, if I want to write a sexy song I’ll play Hall and Oates or Doobie Brothers because they make me feel sexy. If I want to write a rock song I’ll listen to Led Zeppelin or Beatles.

 

Tell us the names of artists or musicians you have worked with, in the past.
My band is pretty incredible. They’ve worked with Shania Twain, Zara Larson, The Amazons, and dozens more! We’ve played at the Plaza Hotel, Pierre Hotel, Friar’s Club, Mandarin Oriental, and Brooklyn Bowl to name a few.

 

Tell us about your experience performing on stage for the first time or recording in the studio for the first time.
My first performance on stage was when I was three years old for a dance recital. I danced around the house all the time, so my parents enrolled me in dance classes. I don’t remember too much because I was three, but I can say every time I’m on stage I feel at home and I know that’s where I’m supposed to be.
I recorded my first album when I was sixteen years old. That was an interesting experience because I didn’t like studio recording back then. I didn’t understand or enjoy singing the same song over and over for an hour. My voice would be tired after those sessions, and I remember not being a fan of the process. Now that I’m older, I love recording in the studio and have a deep appreciation for it.

 

Tell us how you approach songwriting.
I often say most of my songs write themselves. I try not to force anything because that’s when I get in my head and the song comes out terribly. Usually, a tune or a line will come to me out of nowhere (in the car, shower, or cooking) and I’ll record it on my phone. Then when I have time that night I’ll begin to write and see where the song wants to go.
I always write at night. I don’t think I’ve ever written a song during the day. I like it because most of the world is asleep, and I feel free to make mistakes and choices without interruptions. I also like writing at night because the “thinking” part of my brain is tired from the working day, and all that’s left is an openness to create in a non-judgmental state.

 

Tell us your opinion on blending genres or experimenting with sound.
I love experimenting with different genres, but it has to come from a part of me. My music reflects who I am, and all my songs sound different. I don’t believe I should stick to one sound if the music I write comes from a truthful place. I like to challenge myself if it’s a different genre, and often times when merging genres that’s the best kind of song!

 

Elaborate on what compels you to go into music.
I have always said this profession chose me. Even if I wanted to I couldn’t walk away from performing. It’s something my soul is drawn to no matter what mood or stage of my life I’m in. If I’m compelled to write a song, it usually comes from a personal experience I need to get out of my heart (like a music therapy) or a societal observation I feel should be addressed.

 

Discuss how you record your vocals.
Recording vocals is always an intricate, emotional, surgical process. Most of the time it’s about aligning the right emotion with the notes and finding that sweet spot. I like recording in the studio because I don’t have to try so hard— meaning I don’t have to worry about vocal projection or the audience. I just close my eyes and let the song take me. I’ll usually record a song a few times all the way through, then line by line, and finally harmonies. Although it can be tedious singing a line over and over until that perfect take when the emotion hits just right; it brings the words to life.
Most of the time, I have to do exercises to free up my emotions. What does that mean? Well, I’m also an actress so I’ll pull from my acting experience. I personally can’t perform if my body is tense or emotions are suppressed. So I’ll do emotional exercises in the corner to free up my instrument so it’s available to be moved by the song during the recording process.

 

Tell us the software you use mostly for recording.
I believe my production team uses Pro Tools. When I do my home recordings I use Logic.

 

Elaborate on the song.
The Soldier and the Bombshell is a love song to the veterans, active-duty military, and their families, as well as my grandparents. It’s a nostalgic love story that poured out of my one night, and when I finished I knew it was one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. The title came first, and then the story and lyrics followed.

 

Elaborate on your artist’s name and the title of the album.
I like my name because I’m a sucker for alliteration; “Rae” is gender-neutral and just rolls off the tongue.
The title of the song, The Soldier and the Bombshell reflects a story of two characters and I wanted it to be simple, beautiful, and nostalgic. The title alone sounds like a story or movie title, and the song unfolds the rest.
