hello and welcome, friend.

Hey Internet. I'm Raina Rose. I'm a songwriter, mama, and dreamer. I was born in LA in the early 80's and my family moved to Portland, OR in 1988. I lived at my summer camp on the Oregon coast after high school, teaching environmental science and playing songs for kids. I moved into a minivan and hit the road in 2005 when I was 23. I eventually moved to Austin, Texas where I married a bass player and now I have two baby boys. After fitting everything I owned in a Subaru, living in this ranch home in South Austin seems like living in the Taj Mahal. Not to mention, I am embarrassingly rich in friends and loved ones. I write songs, play in a few bands, I write a weekly column for No Depression magazine, I was in a movie called FOLK, and I really like you a lot. I'm currently writing a memoir about a decade of traveling the interconnecting roadway of gigs and songs.
