At only 21 years old, Hilary McRae
is wise beyond her years. The writer/singer/pianist evokes the youth of a vibrant pop star yet her label mates include the likes of Paul McCartney
and Joni Mitchell
. As the first developing artist on Hear Music, McRae holds a very special spot on the label launched by Starbucks and Concord Music Group.
McRae began crafting much of the material on her debut album, Through These Walls
, while attending Berklee School of Music on a songwriting scholarship. She soon realized she wanted to fuse her love for songwriting with performing and decided it was time to make a record.
While McRae's stadium sized voice can well stand on its own, it is complemented by her own piano skills as well as an impressive backdrop of colorful horns. She has finally found her home on Hear Music and explains, "As an artist, I pour my heart out in every note I compose and sing. It is amazing to have the support of a label who works with that same passion."
