Alicia Rae with Steve Moakler at Jammin Java on May 7th, 2015.
I want to start off by thanking Jammin Java, and Steve Moakler for having me! Jammin Java is my favorite venue, and I’m a huge fan of Steve’s.
When I arrived to the venue I was greeted by the JJ staff, Steve, and his team. Everyone was super cool! We hung out in the green room and talked about songwriting, living in Nashville, touring and Korean food!
I opened the show with my set, playing songs from my forthcoming EP, as well as my single, Autumn. I love telling the story of how I learned the words of Autumn, backwards, in order to shoot the music video. It’s a bunch of fun watching everyone’s faces light up, and even more touching to see a couple cuddle up when I sing the chorus.

Next up to perform was Neal Carpenter. What a voice! I already knew I was going to love his set when I heard him practicing in the green room. Here’s a photo of us after the show.
Steve Moakler was the headliner. As I have mentioned, I’m a huge fan of Steve’s. I first discovered him last year, and fell in love with his music after playing his song Truth on repeat for weeks. I was bummed it wasn’t part of his set on Thursday, but he played all of my other favorites!
After one of the coolest encore chant’s I’ve ever heard, Steve finished off the night by playing an acoustic song out in the crowd. I love when artists do that!
Here’s a picture Steve took of the crowd from the stage. Great group of peeps!
After the show, I hung out with some friends, and made a bunch of new friends. Here are a few more pictures from the night.
Here are everyone’s links. Check them out!
Until next time :)
