The neo-soul/pop singer released her debut single ‘Be in Love’ last year which has not only received rave reviews, but also clocked up over 320,000 streams on Spotify. Since then, she has released 2 more singles ‘Alright’ and ‘Closer’ as part of her debut EP ‘Like It Is’.

This live event will be the launch of her debut EP ‘Like It Is’, which will be available on all streaming platforms from the 8th of October.

Rachel has had some serious radio air time over the last year on shows across stations such as RTÉ 2fm, RTÉ Radio 1, Today Fm, Spin 103.8, Cork’s Red FM, 98FM, WLRFM, BBC Radio Ulster, BBC Sounds, FM 104, RTÉ 2XM and many more.

As well as that, she has performed as part of the Hot Press ‘Young and Emerging Series’, the US Embassy Creative Minds event in the Grand Social, the Iontas Online Sessions and has also supported St. Bishop in his headline gig in the Workman’s on September 13th.
