"I really enjoyed working on this set of tracks (2022 Album Self Titled Album). The songs are great and I like how they’re arranged, Rachel’s performance and her singing!"

"You have a beautiful soulful voice"
Michigan based singer-songwriter, Rachel Curtis is contemplative folk and daydreamy, smoky pop artist. 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. 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 a publishing contract 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.
"I believe music can change lives in a therapeutic way.
I was pulled toward music at an early age after singing to my mom when she was bedridden for 2 years unable to walk from a car accident. Once better, she took me to a retirement home to sing. I saw the change I could make on the listeners' faces.
That's when I learned how to convey and release my emotions through songwriting in times of facing my own sickness with battling Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, facing life's struggles and embracing joy at an early age.
My mission is to create songs that resonate with you through your own battles and times of joy!" -Rachel
