Welcome

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.

 

Back in the saddle 

Hey Friends! 

Thanks for coming to my website, it's been while since I've updated this because I have been busy with my side hustle, Folk Potions! I make herbal infused organic skincare for the whole family. I make salve, lip balm, face oil, soap, cbd salve, body butter, and more! Its amazingly fun and satisfying. I have spent the last two years focusing on that project, but I am happy to say that I have recorded a new record with JT Nero from The Birds of Chicago at the helm. My new album VESTA will be out later in 2019. I can't wait for you to hear it. Also, I will be supporting some amazing artists on short tours this year. Hope to see all my old friends and fans. Love yall!
