Jetty Rae - Queen of the Universe. Background - Jetty Rae is a singer-songwriter based out of Northern Michigan. Jetty has been singing, touring, and recording for the since 2005. Her influences include Jennifer Knapp, Brandi Carlile, Cat Power, Ray Lamontagne, Lauryn Hill, Patty Griffin, and many more.

On the other hand she also possesses the power to awaken a passion, a fight in all of us when she really belts it.

She is hoping to give them the tools, studio time, experience, and resources they need to succeed in making great art. Website here , and Facebook here . Jetty Rae has both a
