With her dynamic stage presence, powerhouse vocals and talent for crafting great songs, Rachele Lynae has been winning over legions of fans wherever she performs.
“I love getting on that stage,” says Rachele of performing live. “It’s an amazing feeling when you know that the fans are connecting with you and are connecting with the song. Music is a gift I don’t take for granted and the emotion that you can convey in music is unrivaled by anything else.”
From the moment Rachele steps into the spotlight on stage, she captivates her audience that will have you believing she has been doing this for decades. And in a sense, she has.
A natural born entertainer, Rachele knew at an early age that she would someday be standing center stage and performing her own songs. The Alaska native spent many Sundays singing in church with her family. She also sang in school plays and anywhere else there was an opportunity. By the time she was 12 years old, she was writing her own songs and by the time she graduated high school, Rachele was performing professionally.
Relocating to Nashville in 2006 to attend Belmont University and hone her songwriting and performance skills, Rachele quickly made a name for herself by performing at night and on weekends at many Nashville hot spots along the famed Lower Broadway. During that time, she also recorded a 5-song EP that caught the ear of producer and country star, Jamie O’Neal, who signed her to her own indie label, Momentum Label Group.
With O’Neal’s seasoned guidance, Rachele released her critically acclaimed debut album in 2014, spawning a couple of hit singles and landing the rising star tour dates with some of country music’s biggest stars, including THE BAND PERRY, TYLER FARR, RANDY HOUSER, JERROD NEIMANN, MADDIE & TAE, JOSH ABBOTT BAND, and LUCY HALE, among others.
Rachele has just released her latest single, “Whole Lotta Nothin’,” a care-free, feel-good song she wrote with Nashville tunesmiths, Hannah Bethel and David Myhre. Rachele says the inspiration came as they were reflecting on how their own lives seemingly go “a million miles an hour” most of the time, and how they long for that break we all need now and again. The new single is available now for purchase on iTunes and can be heard on country radio, as well as Sirius XM’s The Highway channel.
