What makes Singer/Bassist, Rachel Loshak’s music and sound so special is her sophisticated bass-and-voice style. The combination of her influences from classical madrigals to alternative pop creates a surprisingly clear and accessible foundation for her fragile and personal lyrics. Onstage, Rachel captivates audiences.
Supporting her on recordings are guitarist Jason Crigler (Erin McKeown, Linda Thompson, Marshall Crenshaw), guitarist Morgan Taylor (Gustafer Yellowgold) and drummer Dan Rieser (Norah Jones, Jesse Harris, Marcy Playground), singer Caitlin Canty, and French horn player Rob Jost (Bjork, SNL, Imogen Heap).
Rachel moved to New York City in the late Nineties from Suffolk, England and honed her songwriting craft with her unique ‘bass and voice’ style. Rachel has created four full-length LP’s: Firefly (2001), Mint (2003), Peach Pony (2005) (including a duet with Norah Jones) and Colors (2010). Peach Pony has been released in several international territories to critical acclaim. Rachel sang onstage with Norah Jones at the Grammy Awards in 2003 and is featured alongside her (and with Jesse Harris) on the Best of the Living Room compilation released in 2002. Rachel has recorded vocals with Moby, as well as Chris Ballew of Presidents Of The United States' family music project, Caspar Babypants on his album Sing Along (2011). Rachel has toured in The United States as well as internationally to Ireland, the UK, France, Germany, Scandinavia and South Korea.
After gaining extensive experience in the music industry as a touring musician, business administrator and creative graphic production designer, Rachel co-founded Apple-eye Productions with husband Morgan Taylor to create an outlet for their creative projects, including Gustafer Yellowgold. They now live in the Catskills with their two sons, Harvey and Ridley.
