FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COURTNEY RAU READY TO “SHAKE” THINGS UP WITH NEW SINGLE
#1 Most Added Single Debuts in Top 200 at AC
“Shake” is currently FMQB’s #1 most added at AC debuting at #127, sharing the top spot for adds with format veterans Five for Fighting, Goo Goo Dolls and Robin Thicke, not a bad showing for a girl splitting her time between writing and recording sessions in Nashville during breaks from high school. “Shake” will impact radio today, August 19.
Rau’s forthcoming EP, her debut with AP Music, showcases her enchanting mix of sparkling youth tempered with the depth and maturity of a singer well beyond her years. Produced by Vulpis, the EP features 5 tracks including “Click,” “In That Moment,” “After the Storm,” “One More Time” and lead single “Shake.”
Hailing from just outside our nation’s capital, Rau began her musical journey as a youngster performing for family and friends, leading to performances with her school choir and local theatre productions. In the eighth grade she began spending her summer and winter breaks in Nashville working with renowned songwriters including Jamie O’Neal, Keith and Adrian Follese, Jim Cooper, and Tommy Collier. Rau, a country girl at heart, honors her influences blending a spunky pop vibe with a street edge to create her ‘Courtney’ sound. This big sound is from a girl just doing her thing, balancing the demands of high school with her passion for singing, writing and performing. Courtney’s star is definitely on the rise!
