Arum Rae Releases Unplugged Album Sub Rosa


Manhattan-based indie/soul artist Arum Rae has released her new unplugged album Sub Rosa on Secret Road Records. The album is the follow-up release to 2016’s Loners EP.

“Sub Rosa is a collection of past, present and future songs in what I consider to be their extra-pure forms,” Rae explains. “Some I recorded at home here in Manhattan and some at my friend’s studio in Brooklyn. Peeling back the layers for the sake of intimacy… an act that is usually the fast track to heartache, but in this case, a dare in the midst of transition to propel forward.”

The Latin phrase sub rosa means "under the rose", and is used in English to denote secrecy or confidentiality, similar to the Chatham House Rule. The phrase is directly connected to Arum, whose name is derived from a water lily (Arum lily). The album features a collection of unique unplugged versions of previously released songs, along with new tracks from her upcoming full-length album, due out this fall.

Purchase it on Apple Music-iTunes or check it out on Spotify now!

Arum Rae is currently on tour in support of Rodriguez. Check out the dates and purchase tickets here!

Ingrid Michaelson Launches 'Use Your Heart' Tee Campaign to Benefit Trevor Project


"I, like many others, have been deeply affected by the divisiveness in this country, which appears to be magnified more so now than ever. I wanted to do something to help bring people together, but I didn't know what. A few friends suggested designing a tee and donating the profits to an organization that protects people who may feel threatened in this present climate. So that's what I did. I feel like we can all agree that this is an important time to use your heart.

I hope you like the "Use Your Heart" Tee. Use #UseYourHeartTee and tag @UseYourHeartTee to show your support."

-Ingrid Michaelson

Secret Road Records Proudly Presents First Release, Arum Rae's Loners EP


Indie soul singer and songwriter Arum Rae went from performing on any stage possible to touring with the likes of Gary Clark, Jr. and B.B. King, and independently releasing her 2014 Warranted Queen EP acclaimed by Noisey, Spin, Paste, and more. Her story comes into focus on 2016’s Loners EP and forthcoming full-length debut for Secret Road Records.

In addition to performing most of the instruments, Arum produced all of the EP, with the exception of the first single, "Wasn't My Time," which was produced by Katalyst (Kanye West, X Ambassadors, Eminem). It’s distinctly her vision. Now, Arum’s stories have the power to resound with listeners worldwide on Loners. “I hope when people hear my music they can find a sense of themselves in it,” she leaves off. “Maybe they can relate to it, and it might move them.”
