GitanaMusic Announces Debut Release of First Latina Lady of Country Music, Rachel Rivero, Singer Songwriter

The release of Rachel Rivero's 'Kisses Day and Night' takes place Nov. 10, 2006.

The EP of five songs is called California Country-Big Valley and is under Rachel's label called GitanaMusic. Gitana means gypsy in Spanish and she likens her childhood to that of a gypsy because they moved often. She is excited to be one of very few Latinos to represent Californians in the Country Music genre.

Rachel has five children, is single, teaches English and Aerobics part-time and enjoys playing and writing music at home with her kids. She has had this dream since she was an 11-year-old girl and finally, it is coming to pass. She and her band plan to begin a modest West Coast tour in later winter.

To achieve the goal of raising awareness of Rachel Rivero and her music, the song must be played all over the country at the same time. Bryan Farrish Radio Promotion from Santa Monica California is managing the release of Rachel's single, Kisses Day and Night. Thus far, Kisses has been played in Colorado, Kentucky, Iowa and North Carolina.

Rachel, the proud mom of *six* amazing kids, was born in San Francisco California and except for a two year stint in Missouri (going to college), she has lived California all her life. While Spanish was her first language, English is the main language she speaks in and out of her Merced home. Rachel has been singing since she was a little girl and because her childhood was tough she took to reading a lot and writing her feelings into poems at a young age. When she was 12, she wrote a song called "Froggy Had a Spider." Her rustic songwriting had begun. :-)

She sang in Christian country/rock bands, Chamber Choirs, worship bands and traveling ensembles while beginning her family and transitioning into adulthood. She likes being a mature singer/songwriter. She says, "When a 19 year old woman sings about lost love and life's heartaches there is a marked difference than when a full fledged woman sings the same themes. I am glad to have lived long enough now to be able to write songs about things that have happened in my life and other men and women will be able to fully relate."

She is excited because her first release, "Kisses Day and Night", from the debut EP California Country - Big Valley, is gaining momentum on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart and she hopes that being a Latina/Hispanic singer/songwriter will bring a new dimension to country music.

On top of all that, being a Westerner gives her another angle on the whole country music scene; cowboys are a big deal in the Central Valley. California is the number one state in farming in the whole United States. It is the Cowboy Capital of the West Coast...ok...ok...second to Texas! ;-)

Country music should have its own California girl and being the state with the largest Latin demographic, Rachel completes the puzzle! Check out her music, it's all original, all from the heart, and certainly, all California Country - from the heart of the Big Valley! - CountryStars.com


A rocker decides to go country
BIG VALLEY Rachel Rivero

For her first CD, Rachel Rivero pulled out all the stops. She went to Nashville, worked with Music City session musicians and eventually birthed "Big Valley," a five-track country CD.

Wait! Country? Nashville?

For anyone who knows Rivero or her voice, it was a bit unexpected. She was mostly a rock and gospel singer.

Country was a new direction, one influenced by the Bay Area native's relocation to Merced.

"My main hope is to be able to do gigs throughout California -- nothing huge," says Rivero, 39, a mother of five. "I don't even desire to be immensely famous. I think that would just mess up my life. But I love music and really, really like to play."

Style: Country. "I knew that it would have a bigger appeal to the people in this region," she says.

Sales pitch: "The title track is really an upbeat, happy song that is an anthem for the San Joaquin Valley," Rivero says. "And the other songs are love ballads."

Influences: From Alison Krauss to Journey and Pat Benatar.

It could be the sound- track to: "A romantic love story with a little bit of melancholy," Rivero says.

Key tracks: "Big Valley," "I Loved You How" and "Sweet Lovin' Man."

Buy it: Online at CDbaby.com or through iTunes.

Cost: $10.

Bio

I was born in San Francisco, California and but for a short stint in Venezuela and much later, Missouri, I have lived in CA all my life. I write the songs and lead the vocals, but I do not do music alone. My friends put their beautiful instrumental abilities to the songs I write and we share this with others.

My life has given me experiences to give words to feelings and memories. We are all Christians who have lived enough life to be real about it, unapologetic for being humans with feelings and struggles. All of us KNOW that music is where we are gifted. So, we do music for fun for the love of it and for the sake of the call.

Lastly, we easily do an original secular set or a "worship" set. You let us know what you need; we're there.
