Bio

Man o man! Sometimes I despise writing these things. I'm just me. I just wanna be me and I don't aim to "hype" myself up. This is who I am and who I'll be...Rachel Leigh;)

I claim Frankton, Indiana as my hometown. I'm a midwest girl. I grew up down on the farm and spent much of my free time roaming the Indiana flatlands. It wasn't until college that I realized that music was my destiny.

When I left college to be a "professional musician," I dove head first into an industry teeming with roaches. I met with the roaches. I ran away from the roaches. And now, "here I am, waitng in the streets of Georgia..." (from my song, "Waiting in the Streets of Georgia"). I am recovering from an unexpected illness that swallowed me whole from left field. It has been the hardest yet most rewarding time of my life. I went through so much darkness but I now know who I am, where I'm going and who I'll be. Me. Who I was created to be.

My passion is people. I have a heart for the people who hurt. I, too, have hurt. I have experienced pain physcially and mentally and through my gift of music, God is giving me a way to connect to people and connect people together! I take my piano and voice and blend the two harmoniously together, bending and breaking with the words and thoughts that I write down on paper. These lulling melodies circle around my head and become songs. The songs are inspired by my experience...it might be a moment on a reality show, or seeing someone who looks perfect on the outside but is dying within...or maybe it's love trying to once again knock me from my feet. These stories take the form of a piano pop/rock smorgasborg and I am used to give these sacred sound seeds out to people who are hungry to hear.

I couldn't imagine myself doing anything else in the world and am so thankful for the gifts I have been given. It is truly an honor to get to give out the music that comes from my soul. From Alicia Keys to Scott Joplin to Alanis Morissett to Elton John...I have and am influenced by many musicians...they have helped shape the sound that I know give out:)

Listen for yourself and let me know what you think. Thanks:):)

Much love to you,
Rachel Leigh*~
