“Clothes Off” is Ria Mae’s first single as part of the Sony Music Canada family. Produced by Juno Award-winning hip-hop artist Classified, “Clothes Off” has already received significant airplay in Ria’s hometown of Halifax. Although this is her first single with Sony Music, Ria is by no means a rookie to the recording industry, especially to those on the East Coast. In 2012, Ria Mae won an East Coast Music Award for her self-released debut “Under The Skin”, and in 2013 she was nominated for another ECMA - Song of the Year - for her track “Leaving Today”. A unique and soulful artist, Ria is ready to step out with a fresh new sound and “Clothes Off” is the first taste of what fans can expect from her forthcoming album.
Ria has just returned from showcasing at The Great Escape Festival in the UK where she received a glowing reception and has also performed at CMJ in New York City; Folk Alliance in Memphis; Canadian Music Week in Toronto; Contact East in Fredericton; and at ECMA Week. She has also shared the stage with Family Of The Year, Xavier Rudd, Buck 65, Classified and opened for Elle King in Montreal (June 1) and Toronto (June 3).
