Raquel de Souza is a singer/songwriter from New York. Growing up with a love of various genres, Raquel’s music can be described as a blend of Country, Rock and Pop. Raquel realized her love for music at a young age and was writing songs throughout high school. After college, she moved to LA to pursue a career in acting, as well as expanding on her songwriting. While in LA, she placed 2nd in a singer/songwriter competition (her first time performing original material in front of a crowd!). Inspired by this experience, she later moved back to New York where she recorded an ep which includes her single “Run Towards the Highway”. A song that has been featured on “Hot New Music Videos” as well as receiving radio airplay. She found two local musicians who shared her vision, Matthew Bauer (Drums) and Luis Cruz (Guitar). They formed an acoustic trio and performed at the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon.
The band took full shape with the additions of Aaron Bishop (Bass) and Catherine Lines (Violin) adding a new sound and energy to the group. Raquel and the band immediately started writing new material with the idea to record a new EP as well as filming a new music video. Looking to share the new material with the world, the band is currently trying to make a name for itself in the country scene. As recently as April 7th 2018, Raquel's first single, "Run Towards The Highway" has received radio airplay. The song ranked #40 out of 50 on DTR Global Top 50 Country Airplay Chart. A chart with household country names such as, Keith Urban and Blake Shelton. The song also was ranked #91 out of 150 on DTR Global Top 150 Independent Airplay Chart. In June of 2018, Raquel and the band are playing the legendary club, The Bitter End in New York City.
