As with her debut album, Listen, Rachel refuses to be pigeonholed, drawing from her extensive musical background to create a sound with elements of jazz, rock, orchestral, and pop, but one that is uniquely her own. This album, as well as her first, is self-produced, recorded at home, and Rachel plays all of the instruments with the utmost precision. Her sweet, almost angelic voice will lure you in and keep you listening. Her music is playful, sophisticated, and delivered with an incredible sensibility.
