Rae Reilly, 29, is a professional songwriter, vocalist and music producer living in Denver, Colorado. She was adopted from Seoul, South Korea. Rae studied Music Business and Songwriting at the University of Southern California (grad. 2011). She later went on to work in the film & TV music departments at NBC Universal, Capitol Records/EMI and Universal Music Group. Rae moved back to Denver in 2014, gained a few years of experience as a technical project manager for two software companies. It was those few years in the tech industry that gave her the courage to learn about recording and production. In 2017, she started pursuing music full time.
Rae works digitally, using Ableton Live software and a home studio set up to write, sing, produce and edit full tracks. She has worked with a variety of clients but specializes in children's music (YouTube, mobile apps/games/educational materials). She writes original material and brings a modern feel to traditional children's songs - blending styles such as pop, electronic, R&B, and more. Whether you are looking for vocals, instrumental tracks, topline (lyrics and melody), or production assistance, this is a one stop shop.
Rae has volunteered for various adoption non-profits, spoken on panels and published blogs. She continually tries to help other adoptees and/or parents looking to adopt a child.
In her spare time, Rae enjoys writing & learning about all genres of music, the Colorado outdoors and going to concerts.
