Fall in love with Rachel Taylor. Her voice is like a string of lullabies, both wrenching and warming your heart, as you sway back and forth to a sound reminiscent of Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Iris Dement, and even Johnny Cash. Every note magnetic, her music is real, honest and vulnerable, leaving the audience wanting more.
Taylor’s upcoming album MAGNETIC is due out in early 2015 (pro- duced by Michael Pritzl of the Violet Burning). This new release featur- ing her soaring vocal style with hints of country and western giving way to an edgier alternative rock theme is a slight departure from the more simplistic styling’s of her EP, “Heartbreak is for Everyone”. Of the title “Magnetic” Taylor says, “To me magnetic is the back and forth of our life. Always drawn in one direction or the other, for better or worse, and our need to break some things, so we can experience fullness”. Tay- lor’s favorite song on the album, “Felt Love Begin”, co-written with Jim Trick, is an honest look at a relationship that has lost it’s fire, but still has the desire to redeem what has been lost.
“Rachel Taylor brings bell-like clarity to her music. There's both art and prophetic poetry here. She calls forth something profound in me as a man too: a deepening love and respect for all women. Rachel's music changes those lucky enough to hear her from the inside out.”
- Frank Schaeffer (NY Times best selling author)
Originally from New England, her roots in music began in church. She was influenced and inspired by the country western music her grandfa- ther would play, and now currently with artists like; Joni Mitchell, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Tom Petty, Alison Krauss, Lori McKenna, Patty Griffin, the Indigo Girls, Led Zepplin, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles. Her influences helped her dig a little deeper to write songs that speak to the listener on a more personal level, while jazz standards shaped her ability to pen great melodies and emote vocally.
Beyond her years at Berklee College of Music, Taylor has had the op- portunity to be mentored by critically acclaimed singer/songwriter/pro- ducer, Michael Been of The Call, and worked with producer/songwriter and Grammy winner Charlie Peacock, producer for the Civil Wars and best folk album of 2012. She has shared the stage with Kris Allen from American Idol, Josh Krajcik from the X factor, Sixpence None the Rich- er, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Vance Joy, Martin Joseph and Boy (girl duo from Germany).

"I love these songs!!!! Going into rotation right now.” -Charlie Peacock
