Blending classical training and indie-folk inspiration, Rachel performs solo with a loop pedal to layer vocal harmony, strings and guitar. The music produced is tastefully rich with harmony & has been praised as hauntingly beautiful. Her presentation is a dance of instruments & pedal footwork usually performed with eyes-closed.
