Rachel Button provides a sweet remedy to the stressful nature of our existence, bringing an idyllic, pure sound, captured on her debut EP ‘With Love’.
Armed with acoustic guitars, cellos, harmonicas, banjoleles, loop pedals, stomp boxes and pretty much anything else they can get their hands on.
Originally from Birmingham, Rachel moved to London in 2005 to further her musical career. She has gigged extensively and supported artists such as Simon Fowler (Ocean Colour Scene) and Steve Knightley (Show of Hands), as well as recorded guest vocals for Ministry of Sound.
The EP expresses the world in Rachel’s own definitive style. Songs such as ‘Coach E’ and ‘The Lost Daughter’ combine dreamy, ambient melodies with the energy of a country hoedown, demonstrating Rachel’s versatility as an artist. Recorded in 2010, ‘With Love’ was mixed by Phil Brown, who has previously worked with Bob Marley, Dido and Led Zeppelin.
