Still working on that hot first release.



Singer/keyboardist Rachel Alena and guitarist Alec
Sims met in 2010 while playing together in a popular
Colorado R&B band. They quickly discovered a
songwriting chemistry and formed R&R shortly
thereafter. Alec, a published author born in
Townsend, MA, has been playing professionally since
the 80's in a variety of high energy blues and funk
bands. Boulder based drummer, Kyle Comerford,
joined in 2012. Kyle’s colorful musical journey began
playing at such famous LA haunts as the Roxie and
the Troubadour and evolved to touring with some
acclaimed national acts including backing Carly
Simon. Bassist Vince Carmellini came on board to
round out the group in 2013. Vince is multi-
instrumentalist whose work is featured on a couple of
chart topping albums.

Rachel Alena grew up in the LA music scene and started making music before she learned to talk. She took her
first musical cues from her mother and father who played in a band together and infused her with their
deep love of music. Her father is often heard on the radio, playing guitar with classic Phil Spector
produced bands such as the Ronettes and the Crystals on popular songs like a Da Do Run Run and Be
My Baby. Rachel was a session vocalist, who toured and also performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic before moving to Colorado in 2000 where her musical journey continues.
