Biography

Singer/songwriter, Rachel Burrell exploded onto the music scene on Wednesday, April 13, at Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker St., performing four songs from her first solo project called “The Story Teller.”

It was an enthusiastic audience that greeted the passionate songstress with a distinct soulful voice, the weight and full body of it reminiscent of Nina Simone, as she shared her stories of love, pain, heartbreak and struggle. Burrell, who believes she has seen life through various lens and angles, says she uses those experiences to write lyrics and tell her stories.

Burrell who lives by the motto “Let your voice be heard,” is the founder of the New York based company, Price Tags Art, which focuses on promoting artists who write thought- provoking and conscious music. It is her belief that music is a ‘heavy’ influence in all of our lives and that of our youth – to that end Price Tags Art has been committed to going into schools to speak to young people about music and the psychological effect of its content.

Born in Wisconsin, raised in Jamaica W.I., Rachel has called New York City home for 10+ years. She graduated from The Fashion Institute of Technology in 2007 with honors and a BS degree in Advertising and Marketing Communications.

After producing music and poetry events at various New York City venues and working with countless underground artists, Burrell now feels it is her time to step into the limelight. Already looking forward to success she says fans can expect a diversity of topics on upcoming projects as her goal is to write about issues that aren’t talked about enough.

Lyrics

My Way Out

Written By: Rachel Burrell


I’m going to find my way out
I’m going to find my way
I’m going to find my way out
I’m going to find my way
Find my way (3X)

Cloudy nights
Foggy sights
I told you secrets of my life

Crazy life of strife
Kept it all inside
You helped me let it out
Then you let it out
To all who would hear
But it’s not your story to tell

You say I won’t
I will
Say I can’t
I can
Watch me (4X)
You’ll be standing there watching me

Loud fights
Endless Plights
I can’t be ok with living like this

I let you know me
Opened up to you
Told you good and bad
Correct this mistake
Say it’s a mistake
Say I’m a mistake over and over again

You say I am
I’m not
Say I don’t
I do
Watch me
You’ll be standing there watching me

Chorus
I’m going to find my way out
I’m going to find my way
I’m going to find my way out
I’m going to find my way
Find my way (3X)

Bridge
Now they’re telling me that I’m not good enough
Why you’re telling me that I’m not good enough
See she’s telling me that I’m not good enough
Now he’s telling me that I’m not good enough
Say I’m not, I am
Say I’m not, I am
Watch me
Watch me
Watch me Watch me
You’ll be standing there watching
