Rachel is 23. Has been singing her songs since leaving school at 17. Channelling spirits of all ages and archetypes. Weaving images of childhood, womanhood, of instinct and inhibition simply with the breath from her lungs, a hardy martin guitar and a bandolim called Sue.
She’s travelled all over, singing. Most recently Canada; touring back and forth with Rose Cousins, with her friend and label-sister, Mo Kenney, and solo. Australia for the famous Woodford Folk Festival; And across the UK and Ireland including sold out shows at Londons Union Chapel, and Glasgows Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum touring with friend and label-brother, Colin Macleod. On top of this, Rachel has supported many marvels including John Grant, Fink, Mumford and Sons, Ron Sexsmith and Elvis Costello.
After a No. 1 debut release in the Indie Single Charts with her Black Currents EP, Rachel released her debut album Under Mountains to critical acclaim. That was 2012. Three years on, and 2015 see’s Rachel release her highly anticipated follow up Tied To The Moon. The new album will feature ten brand new tracks recorded with Colin Macleod and friends in his studio on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides.
