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 with whom I am raising two boys. I write songs, I love to cook, 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.

Thank you for being a friend...
