A Jolt of Caffeine for the Coffee House - LilacFace out NOW!
It's been an eventful summer! Rachel played her first show at Brooklyn bar The Way Station, The Ladybug Festival, and was part of the first installment of WSTW Hometown Heroes' Monthly Music Series at Extreme Pizza! She also was honored to be part of DVT Events' South Street Music Festival and Liberty Music Festival in Philadelphia. The coming months include a Carole King Tribute Show appearance, a return to Brooklyn, and a set at the Brandywine Festival for the Arts. Keep tuned to the Gigs page to stay on top of things.
Rachel is thrilled to announce that her first full-length album, LilacFace, is out! Lauded by DEArtsInfo.com, It is available on CDBaby (physical and digital), iTunes, Amazon MP3, Spotify, or your favorite digital downloading site. "What's best about this is my fans finally get to hear the songs the way I've heard them in my head all along. It just doesn't come across as well on an acoustic guitar," Rachel says. Because she can't do anything without friends in tow, this album was produced by Boy Wonder and Venice Sunlight served as backing band. Special appearances on the album were made by Noelle Picara, TubaDan, Sheila Hershey, and Donna Smith, plus a return appearance by Patrick Allen, who played some of the most exciting guitar parts on Happy Happy. These 9 songs are significantly more indicative of the fun you'll have at one of Rachel's shows. Keep an eye on Rachel's Twitter and Facebook page, or just join the mailing list to stay in touch.
Happy Happy is Rachel's very first EP. Happy Happy features 6 original songs and, if we do say so ourselves, it's pretty awesome. PopMatters says it's awesome, too. CDBaby has physical copies and digital downloads, or you can go to iTunes, Amazon.com, or your favorite digital marketplace for downloads only. What are you waiting for? Get Happy Happy!
It's kind of hard to get to one of Rachel's gigs from the Midwest, the West Coast, or the other side of the ocean. Rachel understands, and hopes that someday she'll be able to come to your town. You can actually help with that. Eventful.com is a great site where you can actually put in requests for your favorite artists to play your town, and local venues do take demands into account when booking.
