"I will be bringing a new record 'ACOUSTIC HAPPENSTANCE' (just like it sounds - an acoustic version of my very first record 'Happenstance') with reinterpretations of the classics - all songs in order and as a collaboration with my longtime mentor, Kevin Salem. Here is a message Ive included on the insert:
We played face to face in the living room. We'd do a take and then another until it felt like magic. We stripped the songs to the bones and built them back up again. Life, time and a grand friendship breathe through these new recordings.
I will be playing songs from my upcoming album, TIGHTROPE WALKER, and with the above two releases, I think the Singapore fans will be excited!" - Rachael
Tickets at $98, $88, $68 and $48 (excluding Sistic fees) will be available from www.sistic.com from 11 May 2016
Her latest album, currently titled ‘Tightrope Walker,’ is slated for a 2016 release. It showcases her calling card ability to articulate humanity’s struggles within relationships and the freedom that comes from celebrating that which we face alone and head on. The production is riskier and cinematic – think Tom Waits meets Roberta Flack, Nick Cave hanging with Rufus Wainwright. Rachael confounds a labeled genre and instead embraces the production that serves the story. The paradox of her art mirrors that of her career and proves that we are never simplistic, but always full of surprises.
"Finally the heir to Bonnie Raitt.” - Ann Powers, NPR Music
“Rachael’s voice is so soulful that it could inspire a tiger to chuff, an elephant to trumpet and whales to sing.” – Gregory Colbert
