About Rachel Grace
Rachel Grace is a Florida Keys transplant from the Genesee River Valley. She is equal parts outlaw country, hard-driving rock and Delta blues. Experiencing Rachel Grace’s music, one can sense her musical influences: Willie Nelson, Muddy Waters, Van Morrison, Patsy Cline, Bonnie Raitt, Bill Withers to name a few. As one fan puts it, her music is “strong, but not arrogant. Smart and thought, but scarred with an understanding that we are all scarred in our own way.”
Rachel Grace is what you would consider a late bloomer to the music scene. At the ripe ol’ age of 40, she quit her day job, jumping head first into the music scene – thus, thrusting her dream of musicianship into a reality. Her sound is confident and fierce. Her powerhouse vocals can be tempered to show her vulnerability.
Recently, Rachel was a featured artist at the Wonderful Night of Blues at the Key West Theater. She will also be a featured guest at the next Sunday Ramble key Key West, FL (date & time TBA). She is the front woman for the Rachel Grace Blues Band, specializing in bringing back all of the Delta Blues classics.
Her upcoming album, Right Kind of Complicated, features some of the top Florida Keys musicians, as well as jaw-dropping licks from international guitar knockout, Matt Backer. It’s an eclectic compilation of songs that show the raw, true and magnificent nature of being human.
Under the direction of world renowned bluesman and cigar box guitar master, Steve Arvey, Rachel is currently becoming the next cigar box guitar sensation. You can catch her every Monday 12:15 PM and Wednesday 7:30 PM EST live on her Facebook page: Rachel Grace Music. When she’s not performing for her loyal fans, you can find her honing her craft, learning something new (she’s a bit of a nerd), or doing her favorite job: being a mom to her two teenagers, three cats and pitbull.
