Rachel Raquel Playlist
Parallel Radio Interview :
Can you tell us a bit about you?
I’m Rachel, I’m a singer/songwriter from Iowa.. I started coming to L.A. when I was 16 to write and record music… And it has been my home since… Now I just live to create and I love it!
How would you describe yourself?
I’m pretty interesting haha… I’m really chill but also really chatty… I could talk for hours about anything… It’s a healthy balance haha! I’m ambitious and a pretty happy person… I’ve been through a lot but I’m definitely the type that thrives harder when knocked down.
What other career could we imagine for you?
Honestly any form of creating or being in entertainment. I also am super intrigued by the business side of entertainment… I could see myself working on the other side as a manager or in PR and then create on the side Haha !
What Music means to you?
It’s everything… It’s the only way I feel like I can really process and get through my problems… It’s very spiritual and therapeutic for me. There was a year and a half that I wasn’t able to do music due to health problems. I thought I would never be able to get back into it after because i was so out of the game… but It’s just like a gravitational force that pulls me in… it just feels so natural and right.. I love it so much!
Favorite project you worked on?
My project! I’m so proud of it and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it… It’s been way too long since I released anything big and It’s my baby so I’m psyched!
Your worst nightmare? Most beautiful dream?
My worst nightmare… I honestly have no idea haha… I’ve been through a lot and in the end everything was still ok… I guess it would be if I could never create again but I don’t know how that would be possible… My most beautiful dream would be seeing that my music touches people… I want to bring people together and make them feel things.
NEW MUSIC THIS FALL!
…What were you doing Saturday night?
Haha last Saturday I spent extremely hungover 🤦🏻♀️ I never go out anymore and I went to an event on Friday and had only 3 drinks and was dead for two days… Super embarrassing Haha! This Saturday I’m taking a quick weekend trip to Lake Havasu in Arizona with my boyfriend and some friends… So I’ll be chilling on a boat… Much cooler!
What do you have in your pockets right now?
Loose change and hair ties.
…A last word in french for our french readers?
“Tu étais tout pour moi – I learned that about a year ago during a writing a session and I am obsessed with it. Also merci!”
