Based out of Duluth, MN, Rachael Kilgour has built a devoted following over the last eight years, captivating audiences with a balance of provocative, topical lyrics, passionate musical delivery, and a charmingly witty stage presence.

Kilgour began writing and performing her own songs in 2005. She was invited to join recording artist Catie Curtis on a tour of the Midwest as an opener and backup musician in 2006 and again the following year. Her original music was received well enough that Kilgour decided to break from the pursuit of a Music Education degree in order to focus on a career as a performer.

In 2007 Kilgour married Adeline Wright and enthusiastically took on the role of step-parent to her young daughter. Kilgour released her long-awaited debut album in December 2008 and a second release, "Will You
Marry Me?" in January 2011. Both albums give an earnest glimpse into the life and politics of a young woman turned wife, mother and advocate for a generation of dissatisfied global citizens. The couple divorced in 2014.

Kilgour has performed across the country in coffeehouses, concert series and radio studios as well as protests and picket lines. She’s shared the stage with such folk luminaries as Greg Brown and Holly Near and earned a local reputation as “everyone’s favorite, spirited folkster.” In 2015 Kilgour was chosen as a finalist in both the Telluride Troubadour Competition and the LEAF Newsong Contest. She was also selected as a semifinalist for the Mountain Stage Newsong Contest in 2013 and was a finalist in both the Big Top Chautauqua and Kerrville Music-2-Life songwriting contests. Her work was featured on online independent news outlet, Truth-Out and earned a review in the best selling lesbian publication, Curve Magazine.

Kilgour’s latest release, “Whistleblower’s Manifesto: Songs for a New Revolution” (February 2013), was recorded in Minneapolis at the Humans Win! studio and was produced by Haley Bonar. The three-song EP focuses on issues of social injustice and showcases Kilgour's innate ability to challenge and inspire listeners.

Kilgour plans to release a new, full-length album within the year.
