"FAME Review of Rachel Timberlake's self-titled album"

Rachel Timberlake certainly has got the rock 'n roll edge that defines today's zillion dollar country music industry, and whether that's a good or bad thing is a topic for greater philosophers than I. Beyond doubt she's got the looks, the onstage energy, and definitely the vocal prowess to propel herself to the top.

But I can't help feeling I've heard this all before which again is either good or bad and another one of those topics for grander thinkers than I. For sure there's plenty of factory tailored, tried and true hits: Honky Tonk Queen, Let's Ride, and Inside Satisfied. You got your made-to-order rollicking crowd rousers: Bigger Better Deal, Rattle Her Jewelry and Girls Are The New Boys (appearing twice, the second mix all country gangsta wid tha urban spelling 2 boot)…then you have the obligatory songs to think about: Jesus Is For Losers and Daddy's Super Glide.

I certainly wish Timberlake and her powerhouse band all the best and having been chosen one of Country Music TV's top 64 unsigned national acts (what the logic is behind 64 and not 29, 36, 12 or 35 I know not) is definitely a leap in the right direction. With the right machinery behind her and her obvious talent and enthusiasm, she has the chance to go all the way. - FAME


"Rachel Timberlake - album review"

There are a lot of talented newcomers out there these days, and many of them are worthy of time and attention. After all, you never know. You might be listening to the next Taylor Swift or Keith Urban. I have a feeling that description might very well apply to Indiana native Rachel Timberlake. All the ingredients are there for Timberlake to make it big time.

Something tells me that there’s a major label out there who might just take this project exactly the way it is, and release it to the masses. Trust me, it’s that good. Timberlake has a youthful edge and vitality that serves her well. That attitude shows up in full view (and sound) on cuts like “Inside Satisfied” and “Girls Are The New Boys,” both of which I could imagine get a nice response when she does them live.

But, that’s only part of the story. Timberlake is not all just fun and games. She scores on the sensual and sexy “Bigger Better Deal,” as well as the well-written “Jesus Is For Losers.” I have to admit that I was somewhat hesitant about the title of this one, but the lyrics are brilliant. Maybe the best overall cut (and it’s tough picking out one because each shines brightly) is the sweetly nostalgic “Daddy’s Super Glide,” which whisks the listener away to a simpler place and time. Not that Rachel needs to spend any time looking back, because her future is definitely bright. Within a year, one of these songs will be a major hit….and you can bank on that. - Music News Nashville

Bio

It takes courage to even consider a career as a professional entertainer, but Southern Indiana's Rachel Timberlake has an extra supply of guts and guile. That's because she isn't one of those performers who've been on stage their entire life and knew singing would be their career choice before they had a prom date. Instead, she's made the decision after attaining success as a teacher, and after being encouraged by others to step out and display what's unquestionably a prominent, impressive and striking voice and delivery.

"I've sung for a long time but I didn't make that decision to get out on my own until some of my church members heard me and told me that I had to let others hear my voice," Timberlake said. "But music is certainly something that I love, although country wasn't the first music that I grew up singing. One of my strengths is my willingness to get out there and show what I can do without worrying so much about failure."

Timberlake has confidence rather than cockiness and that quality shows up very quickly when you hear her crystal-clear voice and energetic delivery. Unlike some performers who depend solely on their vocal abilities, she understands the importance of entertaining the audience with not only her voice but also her mannerisms, melody, pace, intensity and storytelling, and has that special quality to effectively combine all those things into one prominent package.

With a deep religious faith and a devoted husband who believes in her, Timberlake also possesses the necessary resourcefulness for anyone who wants to succeed in today's crowded music landscape. She took the stage a couple of years ago at the famous Tootsie's Orchard Lounge during one of their open mic nights and proceeded to bring the house down, even as she acknowledges she was extremely nervous. "Certainly I was nervous, I mean you're singing in Tootsie's " Timberlake recalls. "But once I got up there and got started, the response was great. The people really warmed up to me and it was wonderful. It also was a big boost because it shows that audiences respond to honesty and personality and that you can be yourself and succeed."

Timberlake's already been a big winner in several other ways. She was a collegiate basketball player before injuries ended her athletic endeavors and she turned to teaching, something she still loves even as she's preparing for the major life transitions that would come with country stardom. "I've really enjoyed teaching. It's been a stable, though certainly demanding job, but it's helped me professionally and personally,” she said. “When the children in my class (she teaches 5th grade) have heard about me singing, they've generally been very supportive. While music is something I feel ready for and a challenge that excites me, I'm not just going to toss aside teaching and overlook what it's done for me."

Still, Timberlake feels 2010 will be her breakout year, with a debut CD scheduled for release in October and the video already done for the sparkling single "Honky Tonk Queen." She also has another standout tune in "Let's Ride," a rollicking number that highlights both her rhythmic intensity and overall charisma and vocal personality. Last summer Timberlake recorded a three song EP, then later finished a 10-cut album that teamed her with veteran songwriter Danny White (Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers) with whom she joined forces penning some tunes while he produced the album. A video for "Honky Tonk Queen," which was produced by Chuck Howard and directed by Amanda Van Sandt, will also be available on various video platforms.

Aware that many performers relocate to Music City in order to achieve their goals, she's both willing to take the chance but wise enough to do it responsibly. "We had a great life and were happy prior to music," Timberlake concludes, "However we tried to start a family of our own without success and my perspective on life drastically changed. I grew up planning my adult life as far as school, marriage, a home and a family.

"But one day I woke up and realized that I was not in control, and couldn't plan every detail of my life. I realized that you must trust that God's plan is right and follow his lead even though it may not be what you want at the time. Through that I have found a new passion, entertaining through music. When I get on stage it is an adrenaline rush like no other and I love going on the road and putting on high energy shows. If that path someday brings me to Nashville, then I'll be thrilled and happy to come."
