Playing a mix of covers and originals, my style is considered Indie-Folk. My main influences are Death Cab for Cutie, No Doubt, Modest Mouse, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs & The White Stripes.
I can play up to 4 hours of 50-min sets, 5-10 min breaks in between as needed. I can provide a list of cover songs I play and of course you can hear all my original music via links. Some of the music I cover is:
- The Beatles
- Elton John
- Men at Work
- Lady Gaga
- The Black Keys
- Blake Shelton
- Eric Clapton
- Lyke Li
- Foo Fighters
- The Eagles
Price Range: $50/hour and up
Gig Length: 60 - 240 minutes
What to Expect
I will show up 1 hour before show time to set up and mingle. I will start right on time and play each set for 50-min. I will take 5-10 min breaks in between sets as needed. I will interact with the audience also as needed because I know sometimes the audience is just enjoying their time with each other.
I usually play 2 covers and 1 original, repeatedly the whole set. I can learn songs for the event as long as it's not something totally out of my skill level and I have ample time to learn the song. I can also end right on time then immediately break down. I can also stay and mingle as needed.
Rachel started playing guitar and singing when she was 13 when she got a Christmas present from her father who happens to be a musician, also. Learning covers for a few years she eventually started writing her own music around age 16.
Now, 31, she teaches beginner guitar classes; holds online concerts as well as live shows; and teaches budding artists how to start their own creative business from home.
Her teaching passion came from her love for the experience- having played in bands since 18; recorded a full album when in 2011. Her style is considered Indie Folk, playing a mix of covers and originals.
Additional Booking Notes
I have my own PA system with 2 speakers. Depending on big the venue is will depend if I use both speakers or not. I can also plug into another sound system, if necessary.
I'm not particular about the "stage" or anything like that. As long as I have room for me, my guitar and speaker system.
The only things I need from you would be a stool/chair; and a small table for my PA head and water.
