We booked Rachel for a family event at our home. She is talented and professional, and made our event a super success! She arrived promptly as scheduled and didn't miss a beat the entire afternoon. I couldn't be happier that we booked Rachel and I look forward to having her back for more events in the future! She is a STAR!
Rachel performed at my husband's 40th birthday party. She was a pleasure to work with! She responded immediately to my inquiry and was very professional throughout the whole process. She sounded great and had a wide variety of songs that she played. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a singer/acoustic guitar player.

What to Expect
If it’s not original, it’s not art. So it should go without saying that Rachel Shortt is an original artist. A self-taught singer/songwriter with heart and voice in perfect harmony, articulating the full range of human emotion and experience. She makes each performance one of a kind with her unique way of connecting with the audience.
Rachel Shortt is an original artist. A self-taught singer/songwriter with heart and voice in perfect harmony, articulating the full range of human emotion and experience. She makes each performance one of a kind with her unique way of connecting with the audience.
Her provocative lyrics approach poetry in their elegant simplicity and ability to stand alone. But with the overlay of Rachel's instrumental artistry, her original work provides a bold new language for those who seek a sound with passion and purpose. Even when performing a popular cover song she pays homage to the original artist while also offering her own unique flavor, breathing new life into each song she plays.
As a native Clevelander, Rachel has performed in both large and small venues, from House of Blues and Kent Stage to cafes and charity events and also specializes in corporate events, private parties & Weddings.
