Biography

www.rochellebucher.com

There are times in life when our feelings are so raw, when emotion runs so deep, that we’re overwhelmed by their magnitude. When such unspeakable heartache and immeasurable joy consumed musician/singer/songwriter Rochelle Bucher, she recorded her emotions for all to hear in her first full-length album, Convince Me.

As the newly released follow-up to her 2003 self-titled vocal/acoustic guitar EP, Convince Me displays the musical prowess of a woman whose quiet spirit belies the strength of her vocals and the wisdom of her lyrics. Rochelle has always felt strongly about “Convince Me” being the title track, not only because it’s a commercially strong ballad, but because it embodies the message of so many of the other songs on the album: “Convince Me” that I can stand on “My Own Two Feet” (track two), that you’ll “Love Me the Right Way” (track seven), that I’m “Over You” (track nine). And this musical treasure trove overflows with seven additional passionate, empowering tracks.

Convince Me was recorded at Dark Horse Studios in Nashville and was co-produced with Nashville singer/songwriter Dan Adams. The album was mixed at Tombstone Recording by Tom Harding, who has lent his expertise to such artists as Deanna Carter, ZZ Top and SHeDAISY. The album was mastered at New York City’s Sterling Studios by Will Quinnell, who has worked with Jewel, Nelly Furtado and Ashley Tisdale.

Rochelle has already received kudos from industry professionals who indicate “the vocals on ‘Convince Me’ are stellar. You have a gift.” And, “Rochelle's songs have a simple structure, but also a consistency that most industry people want to hear. She’s focused and isn’t searching for a ‘style’ or a ‘flavor-of-the-month’ sound.”

While Rochelle has her own unique sound, many will tell you that her music is reminiscent of Alison Krauss, Sarah McLachlan and Patty Griffin. And just like these artists, Rochelle’s songs leave you intensely moved and wanting for more.

“Those who crave songs with meaning and depth will love this album,” says Rochelle, who co-wrote “Over You” and composed the remaining songs on the album. “It’s for the thinkers – those people who really enjoy delving into lyrics and trying to figure out what the artist is trying to get across. And it’s also for those who really enjoy listening to music. Even though this album could be described as extremely introspective, there are also some lighter, upbeat songs that just make you want to dance.”

Real Life To Me

Written By: rochelle bucher

Real Life to Me

I may not have things
That money brings
But that never mattered to me

I may not have fame
They may never know my name
But I will still believe

Storms may rage
With no sign of the sun
I’ll hold on through the rain
I don’t need to run

I’ve got everything
I could ever need
Faith to calm my soul
When I’m feeling weak

Lover in my bed
A baby soft and sweet
I’ve got more than anyone can see
And that’s real life to me

A smile on my face
Hard times can’t erase
No they won’t get to me

Storms may rage
With no sign of the sun
I’ll hold on through the rain
I don’t need to run

I’ve got everything
I could ever need
Faith to calm my soul
When I’m feeling weak

Lover in my bed
A baby soft and sweet
I’ve got more than anyone can see
And that’s real life to me

And so I won’t give up
I’ve put my hope and trust
In things that don’t just fade away

I’ve got everything
I could ever need
Faith to calm my soul
When I’m feeling weak

Lover in my bed
A baby soft and sweet
I’ve got more than anyone can see
And that’s real life to me


You Are So Good To Me

Written By: rochelle bucher

You are so good to me

I am difficult
I always misbehave
I am stubborn baby
Always wanting my own way

You are so good
You are so good to me, good to me
You are so good
To Me

So don’t let me fool you
Cuz I can act real tough
But I could never ever get
Enough of your love

You are so good
You are so good to me, good to me
You are so good

Every time you hold me close
I am reminded that I love you so
You believe in who I am
You know me, you understand

You are so good
You are so good to me, good to me
You are so good
You are so good
To Me

My Own Two Feet

Written By: Rochelle Bucher

My Own Two Feet

Broken down into its simple pieces
My relationship’s gone bad
And here I am with all my excuses
And a million things I don’t understand

As time goes by
Your memory fades
I am strong now I won’t be afraid

Gonna stand on my own two feet
Though they are wounded they will carry me
When I stumble I will get back up
And remember what I’ve learned

I’m gonna stand on my own two feet
Love has been cruel but I still believe
With a little faith I know I’ll stand
On my own two feet

Though I feel bad, I have felt worse
And I believe I’ll be okay
I’ll make mistakes but they won’t be the first
I’m learning how to change

As time goes by
Your memory fades
I am strong now I won’t be afraid

Gonna stand on my own two feet
Though they are wounded they will carry me
When I stumble I will get back up
And remember what I’ve learned

I’m gonna stand on my own two feet
Love has been cruel but I still believe
With a little faith I know I’ll stand
On my own two feet

Sometimes it’s hard
Change is never easy
But I still believe in the strength that God has given me

I’m gonna stand on my own two feet
Though they are wounded they will carry me
When I stumble I will get back up
And remember what I’ve learned

I’m gonna stand on my own two feet
Love has been cruel but I still believe
With a little faith I know I’ll stand
On my own two feet

With a little faith I know
I’ll stand on my own two feet
