Spending some time honing her songwriting and performance playing gigs around her native Halifax, Ria Mae released her debut album Under Your Skin in 2012, winning herself an East Coast Music Award.
After a lot of writing, grinding and growing she signed to Sony Entertainment via Nettwerk Music in 2015 and dropped her latest single “Clothes Off.” Mixed by five-time Grammy winner Serban Ghenea (known for her work on Taylor Swift’s 1989), the song hit No. 1 on CBC Radio 2 chart.
With more than 200,000 views on YouTube, “Clothes Off” earned her a nomination for Songwriter of the Year at the 2015 East Coast Music Awards.
Her upcoming album will be produced by multi-JUNO Award-winning Canadian rapper/producer Classified, and marks her foray into a more dance-oriented pop sound. Look for it in 2016.
