Expresso with Rachel Collis
Sunday 26 March 2017
6 – 8pm in the Church Dungeon
Rachel is back by popular demand for another Expresso! Honest. Heartfelt. Hilarious. Highly acclaimed songstress Rachel Collis is a “welcome jolt back to the time of Jim Webb, Carole King and Joni Mitchell” (The Orange Press). Hailed by critics as “genius”, “prodigy” and “the great underground talent of her time” (Curtain Call), Rachel is sweetness, sophistication and a kind of good old-fashioned songwriting you thought was lost forever from the world – with just a dash of funny in the mix!
In 2012 she burst onto the music scene with back-to-back sell-out performances at the prestigious Riverside Theatres of her one-woman show “The Art Of Letting Go.” Her sophomore album “Nightlight” has met with international success and has been described as “a beacon for folk-cabaret” and “nothing short of exquisite; compositionally and performatively” (Syke On Stage). Boasting an underground following of highly dedicated fans in the UK, the US and Canada, Rachel is a growing international sensation in the modern music industry.
On March 26 Rachel will be sharing songs from her latest release, The Remains Of The Day. These songs offer an intimate look into Rachel’s psyche, offering breathtaking vocals and fragile lyricism. Rachel tackles love, heartbreak, fear and the brevity and fragility of life, reminding listeners to appreciate the smallest things and boldly embrace every moment. Rachel will be joined by guitarist, Matt Nash
