I'm not into the whole folk scene, but this cd is AMAZING!!! I've heard most of it and wanted to just listen to it all day and night. the poetic lyrics give the songs a whole other dynamic. It's great chill music after a long day.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Rachel was born and raised in Portland, Maine, and now resides in Washington, DC. Her lyrics are often informed by her childhood spent at the oceanside, and by her enjoyment of the natural landscape. Simultaneously, Rachel loves to examine and critique inter-personal, social and political landscapes, portraying a unique and unapologetic perspective. Musically her work is influenced by contemporary folk artists including Ani DiFranco, Melissa Ferrick, and Dar Williams, though her music also has hints of blues, country, and rock 'n' roll. In addition to writing all of her own songs, Rachel enjoys setting the poetry of others; two of her most popular settings are of poems written by Sylvia Plath and e.e. cummings.
