One of NYC's best listening rooms, City Winery, is hosting a charity benefit for the "Musicians On Call" organization, which brings musicians and their artistry to the bedsides of hospital-bound patients.
Rachael will contribute and perform alongside club music sensation Kat DeLuna, Michael Grubbs (Wakey! Wakey!, One Tree Hill), Alexis Babini and other talented artists.
This spring Rachael had the incredible opportunity to tour the UK with her childhood idol, the legendary synth-pop genius Howard Jones! It was a unique tour for Howard as he performed entirely solo; just him at the keyboard sharing song insights, hilarious career anecdotes and beautiful, stripped-down piano arrangements.
Along the way, Rachael got to know Howard and his lovely crew, do a bit of radio promo, and have some unexpected adventures across the UK. Check out the tour video recap HERE, and enjoy!
PS: Don't miss the extended club mix and special dance moves that Rachael executes at 3:00!
In a delightful "full circle" of sorts, keyboard pioneer and all around innovative tech company Casio highlighted Rachael last month as their Featured Artist!
Rachael's very first keyboard – and her second, and her third as it happens – was a Casio, which she used to bring to school to accompany the choir, and by which she certainly became known as the local "synth-girl". Soon after, it was off with her Casio to take over the college music scene and world domination!
Not exactly, but these days she travels with an 88-key Privia, a digital piano that she's customized with her signature artwork and glitter. Read all about her relationship to Casio in their official feature article.
Rachael's EP The Tide continued to connect with people as it rose to #8 at college radio station Radio Phoenix, with many stations still adding it and increasing spins.
Speaking of radio, Rachael was also featured on Laney Goodman's popular KRCB Women In Music radio show, alongside Sarah McLachlan, Mary Chapin Carpenter and others.
Summer radio is staying cool!
Later this summer Rachael will head back across the pond to play several Pride Festivals in the UK — along with a special intimate performance at renowned acoustic venue The Green Note in London on August 3rd.
Tour dates are listed below. For more details or if you would like to attend a show shoot us an email, we'd love to see you.
Rachael is hard at work (i.e. play) on her next album, and has been recording it between her last few tours. While we don't wanna give away too many details just yet – what fun would that be? – we can tell you a few! Firstly, she's playing a lot more guitar on it, and has already had a few sessions with illustrious members of her band The Sequins (Ward Williams, Andy Mac, Kelly Halloran, Dave Eggar) as well as "honorary sequin" & longtime collaborator James Mastro — who toured as Rachael's electric guitarist on the Beth Hart tour earlier this year.
Rachael has also been spotted in the studio playing Moog synth, singing in Yiddish (yep!), and gathering some pretty amazing ladies for a special 20th anniversary reboot of the fan favorite, "Sistersong". The album is slated for a Spring 2018 release, and we'll send you more updates as things progress.
