Rachel has been writing songs since 2004. She writes folk songs, accompanied by acoustic guitar, about love, loss, inspiration and hope. Rachel's song writing style is influenced by popular artists Missy Higgins, Sara Bareilles, Eva Cassidy, Laura Marling and many more.
Since graduating from Newtown High School of the Performing Arts in 2006, Rachel started writing more than ever before. She then became a resident performer at The Log Cabin, The Nepean Waterside Restaurant in January 2007; this 3 year residency gave Rachel the opportunity to not only perform on a regular basis, but also expose her talent as a young singer/songwriter.
During 2007, 2008 and 2009 Rachel performed at numerous weddings, functions, parties and other events; giving her further opportunities to perform her own material and reach audiences all over Sydney and surrounding regions.
In 2009, Rachel also started performing her original music regularly in pubs, clubs, hotels and local restaurants; selling CDs that would then spread her voice and name to families and businesses all over Sydney.
Rachel released her first cover album, 'Aperitif' in 2007 and released her first original album, 'LIVE in the Studio', in early June 2009, in hopes to share her original music with music lovers all over Sydney. Rachel also released a 3rd album in 2011 featuring covers performed by her working duo TOUCAN, featuring Eddy Santacreu on guitar. All of Rachel's CD releases can be found on the online store.
Rachel is currently performing every weekend both solo and duo at a venue near you. Visit the gigs page for a list of upcoming dates, times and venues.
