BIO

Rachel brings an unique acoustic pop sound that will have you tapping your foot and humming along. Drawing upon personal experiences, her lyrics connect to everyone's encounters of life, love and loss. Influenced by the musical likings of the late Michael Jackson, John Mayer, Lauryn Hill, James Morrison and Sara Bareilles, Rachel mixes a soulful vocal style with pop melodies unmatched in the music industry today. The developed sound of her debut CD, "Curtain Fall," guarantees these tracks will make it onto your favorite playlist.

Music infused with self-determined passion is what drives Rachel to continue exposing the world to her heartfelt music from an Asian American woman. This determination has helped her garner international recognition as tracks off of “Curtain Fall” can now be heard on radio stations in Canada and the Philippines.

Rachel beat out over 3,000 bands in the US to secure her top 12 finalist spot for Ford’s Gimme the Gig II Contest. As part of the contest, she was able to showcase her original music in front of Grammy-award winning producer Don Was and renowned sound engineer Krish Sharma for a KTLA tv feature. Currently working hard on her sophomore album, Rachel can’t wait to share the more developed and matured sound of her personal stories brought to life via song.

Look for her sophomore album, Letters to You out in early Summer of 2013. Her new single, Center Stage, is now available on iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon.
