Rachel Lee Walsh is a New York based Singer & Songwriter. As a young person, she grew up in Northern Florida with family members who held a variety of jobs such as teacher, electrician, administrative assistant, and customer service rep. She also had parents who worked on the business side of music & advertising as talent and tour managers. Rachel started performing in theater, TV commercials, and music productions at 7 years old and for college she moved to New York City to study music performance at The New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music. After college, she would go on to pursue music as a Singer/Songwriter and played every style of music from punk to folk to jazz. Her original songs fit comfortably into Americana and Singer/Songwriter genres. Whether it’s a lullaby to her son who wakes from a nightmare, an upbeat catchy song for her wife, a bluesy song about loss, or a love song to a city, her music is rooted in telling personal stories. She has released 3 EP’s, has toured across the U.S., was the winner of the Brooklyn Anthem Bash with her song “Please Come To Brooklyn” (2011), co-founded the “The Ignition Lab” songwriter series, and is the band leader for The Rosemary Jazz Band, who play 20s-40s style vintage jazz.
