  • Description

    Singer, songwriter and slide guitar player Rachelle van Zanten is turning the heads of the music industry folk. Her charismatic stage presence and fine guitar licks and stellar slide playing have seen her share the stage with the likes of Ry Cooder collaborator, Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, and blues guitarist Sue Foley.
    The stunning debut solo album from the former member of the Canadian rock quartet, Painting Daisies, is packed with funky blues riffs and country soul. Rachelle’s influences range from Led Zeppelin and Jeff Buckley, to John Prine and Lucinda Williams. Her music has been described as “Canned Heat meets Gillian Welch�.
    "Rootsy/blues music and the ability to write songs you actually care about." - Blues Matters.
    “van Zanten juxtaposes her gutsy guitar playing with very personal and introspective lyrics, a stylistic trait she attributes to her diverse influences" - Guitar Player Magazine.
