Lunar Soundwaves

By: Laurie Gallardo

A little reminder of your Austin Music Minute host’s recent raves over music artist/producer Lunar Rae – keep your ears peeled for this multi-talented, multi-faceted artist with a resume that will blow your mind (Sir Woman, Jon Batiste, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, bassist/songwriter MonoNeon). And all this is merely scratching the surface of “Reaching Authentic Essence” – hence the R.A.E. of Lunar Rae.

Lunar Rae is the next featured artist of Soundwaves at Hotel Magdalena, a live music series and residency program with a rotating line-up of Austin-based musicians, presented in conjunction with Song Confessional, the podcast hosted and produced by Walker Lukens and Zac Catanzaro.

Catch a Lunar Rae DJ set beginning at 6 p.m. tomorrow, Sunday September 19, at Hotel Magdalena, 1101 Music Ln., and remember to hit up Song Confessional with your extraordinary tales. And please remember to bring your mask.

Breathing in the beauty, you’re overwhelmed by the majestic surroundings while simultaneously astounded by their quiet power. It’s unsettling and wonderful. Such is the power of […]
