World Cafe Playlist for 03/31/2022

Erin Rae joins Nashville correspondent Jessie Scott

In 2020, Erin Rae released a song between records, called “He’s Not Free.” It was written in response to the murder of George Floyd and voter suppression in Georgia in 2020, a year of events that shifted Erin’s perspective. Now, she’s back with the full-length album, Lighten Up, which serves as somewhat of a pep talk to herself. She’ll discuss the record and share live performance of the new songs in a session from Nashville.
