Calgary’s own Tate McRae finally has made her way back to her native Canada after finding much success over the past few years. The 18-year-old Singer/Songwriter and Dancer got her big break on SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE as the first-ever Canadian Finalist. But who would’ve known, her success ultimately would come in Music?
McRae currently is on-tour and finally has Canadian dates after the Pandemic presented multiple delays. She sold-out Danforth Music Hall entirely, and tickets were being offered by re-sellers at astronomical prices.
While she’s prepping the release of her first LP I USED TO THINK I COULD FLY, out via Sony Music Canada on May 27, 2022, she has plenty of material already to tour with, playing a 15-song setlist including hits “feel like shit”, “that way”, “she’s all i wanna be” and “you broke me first”.

So happy finally to meet McRae, who played a superb show. She is equally adept a Dancer as she is a Vocalist. The ecstatic audience reaction completely is warranted. Have respected her hustle and talent. And above all that, she’s so sweet! We chat quickly about our love for HBO‘s “Euphoria” and between hugs she tells me she’s totally Team Maddie (character played by Alexa Demie). Photo coming soon!
McRae was supported by English Singer-Songwriter Mimi Webb who put on a powerful display, singing among others her track “Good Without” which just got certified Gold in Canada, plus her latest single “House on Fire“. She brought the house down with a cover of Adele‘s “Someone Like You“.
