Rachel moved to New York City in the late Nineties from Suffolk, England and honed her songwriting craft with her unique ‘bass and voice’ style. Rachel has created four full-length LP’s: Firefly (2001), Mint (2003), Peach Pony (2005) (including a duet with Norah Jones) and Colors (2010). Peach Pony was released in several international territories to critical acclaim. Rachel sang onstage with Norah Jones at the Grammy™ Awards in 2003 and is featured alongside her (and with Jesse Harris) on the Best of the Living Room compilation released in 2002. Rachel has recorded vocals with Moby, as well as Chris Ballew of Presidents Of The United States' family music project, Caspar Babypants on his album Sing Along (2011). Rachel has toured in The United States as well as internationally to Ireland, the UK, France, Germany, Scandinavia and South Korea. Rachel also lent her vocal talents to the Grammy™ Winning album Can You Canoe? (2013) by The Okee Dokee Brothers.

In 2005 Rachel co-founded Apple-eye Productions with her husband Morgan Taylor to create an outlet for their creative projects, including Gustafer Yellowgold. Her role as manager, business administrator and creative graphic production designer, has led to the project to becoming a nationally known and critically acclaimed family-entertainment brand.

SO BRIGHT, Rachel’s deepest and most mature studio album yet was produced by Grammy ™ winning producer Dean Jones at No Parking studio in Rosendale NY. Keeping the focus on Rachel’s unique bass and vocal foundation, rich layers of harmony, violin, piano, organ, percussion, French horn and alto flute were added in support of Rachel’s intimate and hauntingly melodic songs of love, motherhood, friendship and death.

Rachel is joined on SO BRIGHT by an incredible cast of musicians and singers including Dean Jones on drums, percussion and keyboards. Frances England, Jennifer Lewis Bennett and Debbie Lan on backing vocals. Kirsten Jacobsen on alto flute, as well as Rob Jost on French Horn, Chris Brown on piano and Hammond organ, Dan Rieser on percussion and guest pianist Lori Henriques.

Rachel now lives in the Catskills with Morgan and their two sons, Harvey and Ridley.
