Rachel Lark is a genre-killing songwriter and musician of small stature and epic proportions. A pioneering rock star who defies classification, her music is consistently staggering in its realness and unrelenting in its power.She's made a name for herself as the musical muse of San Francisco's sex counterculture, creating songs that blend sex-positive messages with bawdy humor to create an irresistible and timely perspective. Her ukulele tunes about sex and relationships have been featured on The Savage Lovecast, Bawdy Storytelling, Kinky Salon, and Margaret Cho's #BeRobin performances. She has also showcased her electronic-inspired live-looping set at many bay area venues such as Boom Boom Room and The New Parish, recently opening for live-looping legend, Zach Deputy.
