Instructor bio -
In my opinion music, and the voice in particular, is the most powerful alchemical tool we have available to us as humans.
Rafe Pearlman started his singing career with the wolves, ravens and sled dogs of the Alaskan wilderness. The wild nature of his exploratory singing has led to performances spanning the globe, from India, Hong Kong, Israel and Germany, to Italy, France, Spain, Australia, Thailand, Mexico and all across the United States.
Rafe’s intention with his music is to inspire a vision of a world in harmony and unity, celebrating diversity, sustainability, and equality for all beings. Sometimes a simple song is all it takes to open a connection.
He is a performer, composer, speaker and creative vocal coach.
Highlights of his many years of music making include performances at John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (USA), America’s Got Talent (USA), Festival Internaciona (Mexico), Lightning in a Bottle (USA), Burning Man (USA), and Shantipi (Israel).
Collaboration is central to Rafe’s creative process and he’s had the opportunity to work with some amazing performers and composers over the years including William Close and the Earth Harp Collective, touring with the world’s largest stringed instrument. Rafe was accompanied by a full orchestra, working with one of Hollywood’s top soundtrack composers, Tyler Bates, at the festival of film composers, “MOSMA,” in Malaga Spain.
Rafe’s voice is featured on soundtracks for Netflix, Direct-TV, NBC and Thunder Road Films, and on Sony’s top video games. Rafe will be a new voice on the upcoming season of Motherland: Fort Salem, creating vocal spells for the cast of characters.
Rafe recently was awarded an artist residency at the Orcas Center Theater to create a new evening length show inspired by his childhood in Alaska featuring his music and visual art, entitled “KANU”
“Rafe Pearlman makes meaning as well as music and enfolds an array of traditions in his work which can only be described as timeless and unique. He has a voice that is as full and open as the sky. A heart that is vast and defenseless and a talent that is beyond beautiful.” – John McLean, Pastor, Nashville
