Glancing Love self-titled EP



Tidbit bio
Rachel and Theresa have performed together since 1991 as members of the Celtic Fusion group, The Strange Woods, filling the houses for a wide array of music venues with their wonderful sound. Now as the duo, Glancing Love, they bring to the fore a more vivid interpretation of their musical passion and experience.

Theresa's Bio:
Theresa Rochelle-Ross is a vocalist, musician and songwriter offering a vast wealth of experience from decades of creating and performing in the professional arena. Since singing and dancing her way into a career with a traveling gypsy band in 1977 she has been involved in the performance of Celtic and classic folk music in pubs, coffee houses, and concert halls across the southwest. Her multifaceted voice, with its passionate purity and lilting, ethereal grace, rises and falls over a wide range of melodic interpretations. She gives elegant accompaniment on the pennywhistle, recorder, Celtic folk-harp, and ethnic drums in a compelling style, unique and unforgettable.

Theresa is originally from San Diego; CA. where she studied theater and dance in school, leading to her dream of a career onstage. Her first professional venture began in San Francisco where she performed for tips on Fisherman’s Wharf as a member of a quartet known as The Everyman Gypsy Band.

The ensuing years have seen her as a centerpiece in four band incarnations sharing the bill with the likes of Scottish bard, Robin Williamson; of Incredible String Band fame, Dave Bromberg, Kate Wolfe, Will Millar; of The Irish Rovers, and Breton avant garde harp master, Alan Stivell.

Over the span of her career, Theresa has played many of the most noted Irish pubs, folk venues, street fairs and music festivals in California. Along with countless school performances throughout the years, her credits also include participating in an array of performances for church and community outreach fundraisers and special events, as well as providing music for weddings, and corporate and private parties.

Rachel's Bio:
Rachel Amov is a wonderfully accomplished, classically trained musician, with over 30 years of performance background to her credit. Evoking an air of sweet precision on violin, viola and cello, she entwines each note with delightful energy, or emotes with haunting grace, all the while captivating her audience with her mysterious and mystical gypsy flair. Rachel’s instrumental versatility and virtuosity brings to the casual listener and serious music enthusiast alike a most rewarding and memorable experience.

After early training on piano, guitar and violin, Rachel devoted herself to performing violin and viola with youth orchestras, later moving on to a variety of college symphonies and chamber groups. While pursuing her heart’s desire in music, she successfully earned a Bachelor’s degree in English and a Master’s degree in Education. Over time Rachel’s interest in music went beyond the classical, leading her toward a fascination for Irish, Eastern European, Klezmer, and the broader “folk” genres. It was in these enchanting expressions that Rachel found voice for her inner gypsy. She listened, studied, absorbed, and then began performing with a variety of artists including violin virtuoso, Chris Vitas, the eclectic Celtic/jazz group known as Raggle Taggle, the eastern European and flamenco influenced, Electrocarpathians, and new age composer Kevin Keller.

Since becoming a member of Celtic Fusion group, The Strange Woods, Rachel has delighted and inspired listeners of all ages with her charming and innovative renditions.

As well as performing onstage, Rachel is currently teaching 6th grade curriculum at a private school in Encinitas, California, where she was awarded the city’s honor for “Teacher of the Year” in June, 2007.
