Declared “the future” by Wyclef Jean and “the next big thing” by InStyle, native New Yorker Rachel Brown’s distinct sound blends elements of her roots (Ethiopian, Bermudian, and Southern) with a childhood spent listening to soul greats like Sam Cooke and Smokey Robinson, as well as other R&B, hip hop, and 90’s pop.

“A voice that drew me in the moment I heard it” – BBC World Service
“One of the best live performances from a new artist you will experience” – JoonBug
