While still a child, Ria Mae began to write songs. Growing up in Halifax, she was really shy so staying in her room and writing music really suited her. She even taught herself how to play guitar without anyone knowing. Despite the fact that she loved music after high school Ria began working in construction. It wasn’t long, however, that she began to play in clubs and bars.
Due to this she began to gain a fan base and released her first EP Between the Bad in 2009. In 2011 she self-released a debut album called Under Your Skin. East Coast Music Awards began to accumulate. Once she signed to Sony Records, a self-titled album ensued which was produced by Classified. The single “Clothes Off” was released and nominated for a Juno for Single of the Year.
Since the beginning of her career she has always pretty much continuously been on the road. Ria has been on stage with Elle King, Classified, Buck 65, and Xavier Rudd.
