Biography

Rachel is a 16-year-old singer/songwriter who composes in several genres including country, pop, and R&B. This Texas girl released her debut EP on her 16th birthday, and it is appropriately titled 'Sweet 16'. It contains the first three singles off her upcoming debut album (When You Were Mine, Left Me Hanging, and Butterflies and Nursery Rhymes). She has just wrapped up in the studio with 8 additional songs that will be included on her debut full-length album, which will be released in April 2011.

Rachel has been singing since she could talk and has already entertained tens of thousands of people in her short life. From singing the National Anthem before crowds upwards of 14,000 to impromptu concerts for friends and family, she has never shied away from the spotlight, making the front page of her hometown newspaper twice before she was 12 years old.

It wasn't until she got her first acoustic guitar at the age of 14, however, that she realized she had a knack for composing as well as performing. After teaching herself a few chords using youtube videos, she started churning out songs at an unbelievable pace - that guitar really released the creative energy within! Less than a year later, she had written more than 35 songs and her parents knew that the time had come to start a recording project and started figuring out how to make that happen.
Enter, Producer, Brian Douglas Phillips and Rattle Trap Audio in Austin, TX. Rachel and Brian make an incredible duo when it comes to arranging Rachel's songs into the vision she had for them, but did not have the ability to create alone. Brian also plays most of the instruments on all of the songs Rachel has recorded to date and was the mixing engineer for the entire debut album.
