Help a veteran with PTSD: click here

Rafe has committed to donating 10x streaming revenue to help veterans living with trauma.

Rafe
Rafe is a country singer and songwriter whose journey began on small stages for the late-night bar crowd in his hometown of Duluth, Minnesota. As the crowd at his shows began to grow, he eventually took to writing and performing some of his own music. After some time performing in crowded bars, Rafe was eventually drawn to the vibrancy of Nashville where he met his producer Jeff Huskins (Little Texas, Clint Black). His ties to Nashville eventually provided him the opportunity to write with world-class songwriters, collaborate with Grammy award winners, and record a full-length album at Sound Stage Studios on Music Row. As he worked to expand his portfolio, he quickly amassed a following back home in Duluth, drawing thousands out to his shows and opening for acts such as Jake Owen and Tyler Rich. Rafe spent most of 2022 on the road, playing more than 140 shows in over 40 cities and towns thus laying the groundwork for a national following. A busy summer of touring didn’t stop him from also writing, performing, and recording in Nashville for much of the year, as he and his team put the finishing touches on a highly anticipated debut album.

Growing up in a military family where both of his grandfathers served in WWII, the well-being and overall health of those who have served in the U.S. military is something he holds very close to his heart. In his latest release, “A Place to Fall”, Rafe is donating ten times his overall streaming revenue to give back to veterans.

Rafe is currently living in Nashville, and focusing on writing, recording, and finishing up his album. Stay in the know by following Rafe on Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok, and catch him on his 2023 Summer Tour through the Midwest where he will be sharing the stage with acts such as Jon Pardi, Sawyer Brown, and more.
