A vibrant and vivacious superstar in the making, Kady Rain is on a mission to put Austin on the map as a pop metropolis. Though Kady pursued music from an early age, it became an all-consuming passion in 2014 after an abusive relationship almost cost her her life. Kady refused to let that experience get the best of her and she channeled her newly reinvigorated appreciation for life into her art and hoped her transformation and perseverance both personally and artistically would serve as inspiration for others. With a knack for crafting lyrics and melodies that are irresistibly charming and sharp in equal measure, Kady Rain's music is the kind of pop that you don't mind having stuck in your head indefinitely, and her outrageous stage presence and rainbow aesthetic have made her a consistent live draw in Austin and beyond. Kady Rain's sonic diversity, from woeful ballads detailing her tumultuous past to party bangers that everyone can't help but sing along to, has allowed her to find fans across the musical spectrum, and her skill at connecting to listeners by being so open about her own narrative ensures they stick around. As a result, Kady Rain's debut EP, All I Ever Wanted, led to Wolf in a Suit naming her one of the Top Five New Indie Queen's of Music with both Ovrld and Austin.com likewise heralding her as "Austin's next megastar." In 2018, NPR followed suit, proclaiming Kady's single "R.A.D. Moves" as their song of the summer for 2018. With some exciting collaborations and festival appearances on the horizon, 2019 is only going to be bigger and bolder for Austin's queen of pop. For Kady Rain's ACL performance, she will be backed by Austin pop band Goons.
