Most rising country stars aspire to climb the charts. But perpetually sunny singer-songwriter Risa Binder is committed to touching hearts with her new five-song EP Nashville.
Binder is a city girl with a country heart. And she’s always heard music’s call. Binder started singing soon after she began to talk.
Although she moved to Brooklyn to pursue her career, Binder soon found herself saving all of her money from waitressing to finance trips to Nashville, where she attended songwriter nights at the legendary Bluebird Cafe and immersed herself in the city’s sights and sounds.
Magical things happen to Binder for a reason. Her unflaggingly positive personality is magnetic, on and off the stage. She was one of the most popular new artists at Nashville’s 2014 CMA Music Festival, signing a constant flow of autographs at the Farm Boy/Farm Girl brands booth.
After every show she hosts a “Sweet and Greet” for fans, where she chats and signs autographs and serves her guests cupcakes or other treats procured from local purveyors. Binder also hosts her “Be the Change” blog on Facebook, where she celebrates acts of kindness and public service by her fellow New Yorkers.
