SHAKING THINGS UP WITH TEENAGE COURTNEY RAU — A STAR ON THE RISE!
This edition of “MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges” originally aired on October 22, 2013
This week’s program takes a youthful spin as it introduces Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland to rising national pop singer COURTNEY RAU, a red hot teenage vocalist who has already broken the Top 40 charts with her first single, “SHAKE.”
Currently splitting her time between Florida, Nashville, and Washington DC, Rau has lived for periods of her young life in places like India and England, which contributes to her broad musical style, which runs the gamut from dance-pop to country-pop, giving Rau a sound that falls somewhere between Avril Lavigne and Taylor Swift. Rau’s music has both sparkling youthfulness but also a maturity well beyond her years.
Rau’s international debut album is due for release in early 2014. Joining the teen pop sensation in chatting with Lounges on The Lakeshore airwaves will be her producer Joe Vulpis, whose recording credits include producing tracks for dance music diva Lady Gaga.
This show gives fans of “SHAKE” a sneak peek at songs from Rau’s forthcoming debut CD. Rau is poised to be a break-out star of 2014, so don’t miss this early spotlight of a superstar in the making.
