Rachel is an excellent session singer for recording projects, with the highest levels of professionalism and talent in the recording studio. She thoroughly familiarised herself with the demo tracks in advance and rehearsed to ensure that the studio time was utilised productively and efficiently. As a songwriter herself she is also able to provide invaluable creative input when required.

Rachel is a captivating and versatile artist which we at Viking FM have featured at a diverse range of events. She is as comfortable performing in front of an intimate crowd as she is in front of hundreds. We have often given Rachel a challenge, whether it is performing an originals set, a covers set, a Christmas set or even performing with a live band which she hadn't met until she stepped on stage! Rachel has performed at many Viking FM events and has always wowed the crowds, including a performance in front of over 500 listeners when she starred on our All At Sea ferry trip to Amsterdam
