Rachel is very excited that her debut cd "A Hundred Places" is now available on iTunes!! Rachel is a young award winning singer/songwriter from the Atlanta area. She began writing her own music only 3 years ago yet her songs are instantly familiar, refreshingly organic, surprisingly emotional and in arguably cool. Rachel has been influenced by the rock of Grace Potter, the bluesy jazz of Norah Jones and the crossover country tunes of Sheryl Crow. Playing gigs around Atlanta, Nashville and many places in between, is a regular part of life for this full time high school student. Rachel has recently released her debut album, “A Hundred Places” with some of her songs receiving airplay on ATL Radio 105.7 FM as well as internet and college radio.
Rachel began her music education through Honeybee Center for Music Education over 4 years ago. She studies voice, guitar, songwriting and music theory, as well as being a member of the ensemble performing team. All this under the direction of Berklee College of Music graduate Erik Grant Bennett and classically trained vocal coach Elise Bennett.
She has also gained a lot of performing experience as a member of the Georgia Country-Gospel Music Association, GCGMA. Their showcases have allowed Rachel to perform at venues such as Hard Rock, amusement parks and Country Tonite Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN.
Rachel has also enjoyed working with Nashville Spotlight. They have given her the opportunity her to perform at The Nashville Palace several times per year. It's a great opportunity since they have vocal coaches from the Nashville area on hand to evaluate and give advice.
