This is a very sweet song. I love the poetry in the lyrics and Rachel is able to paint a lovely picture with her voice. Her guitar work is beautifully done. You can tell she spends a lot of time working with her instrument. Vocally she has moments of shinning brilliance. There were a few spots where it sounded like she was just under the notes, but it wasn’t some thing that would pull you out of the song. And any vocal misteps are easily overlooked by her talent as a songwriter and guitar player. She is a young girl with an incredible amount of talent. It always amazes me when I see such talent in younger people. The only place you have to go is up girl!
I think this is a girl to keep your eye on. In her bio she say’s her favorite thing to do is write and I could see her writing songs that will win Grammy’s. I plan to listen to more of her stuff to check out the lyrical content. Her songwriting style has such a beautiful vibe, very raw and honest. As a music fan I like it when I can hear the vulnerability in the voice and the words. I think Rachel is able to do that with style and class.
Who They Are:
Hi, I’m Rachel and I am a singer and songwriter. I love to write, compose, sing, play and perform music. If you ask me what my very favourite thing to do is – I would say write. When I write I openly express my feelings and emotions – and for me that is how I get through all kinds of situations. All my songs come from my heart. I love talking to people of all ages and love to see them smile. I am so thankful for all of the incredible opportunities that I have been blessed with including singing at: the Opening Ceremonies of the International Children’s Winter Games, YVR Canucks for Kids Charitable Event, anthem for the Vancouver Canucks (NHL), anthem and halftime for the BC Lions Football (CFL), and 2012 and 2013 Showcases at CCMA Music Week. When I was 11 years old I even got to sing with the legendary Kenny Rogers which was a huge moment in my life. I keep busy singing at festivals, events, coffee shops, and of course the anthems for my hometown hockey, baseball and football teams. I don’t necessarily stick to one genre of music but love all kinds of music including new and old country, classic rock, jazz and alternate pop. I find that I draw inspiration for my songs from life events or things that have affected me in some way. The most important thing for me is being able to share my music with people. Thank you for listening. ~ Rachel
