Artist Background

Rachel Curtis is a contemplative folk and daydreamy, smoky pop artist with Michigan roots, currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee. She delivers unique, seasoned vocals, weaving a common thread of heartfelt melodies throughout the varying alternative folk and pop genres.

She has opened up for nationally-touring bands and Grammy-winning artists including Gladys Knight, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Tracy Lawrence, Tyler Ramsey (Band of Horses), Mat Kearney in September of 2021 and Will Hoge in 2022. Rachel’s matured stylings grabbed the attention of American Idol judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan in 2018, landing her a ticket to Hollywood.

Her original music received a national spotlight at the 2019 CMA Fest, on the Spotlight Stage at the Music City Center in Nashville. Getting to play Common Ground Music Festival, Curtis was able to cross off one of many bucket list items by playing the same festival as her inspirations -- Brandi Carlile and City and Colour in 2019.

Rachel has been releasing music consistently since 2018, including her early favorites “Dandelions,”& “Intertwine”. Her 2021 singles gained impressive recognition from blogs & playlists, including NPR. This led to the release of her 2022 self-titled album, landing two non-exclusive publishing contracts for sync licensing. Rachel continues to write and tour with intent to change lives, meet new people and continue to plant seeds of growth.

Some of her musical inspirations include artists that also tend to blur the lines of genres like Adele, Maggie Rogers, Bishop Briggs, Harry Styles, Kacey Musgraves and Hozier.

Behind The Music

"I believe that music is a form of therapy. From singing to my bedridden mom during her recovery to seeing the impact on listeners during a show, I've witnessed firsthand how music can uplift and heal.


Inspired by my own battles with a rare chronic illness called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and facing life's challenges & triumphs, I've found a release and expression through songwriting & performing."
