Rachel Harrington has a lovely new record out. I have been impressed with Rachel since I first heard her debut record back in 2007. I wrote up her sophomore effort City of Refuge here. On the advice of Lori McKenna for the new record Rachel has looked inward for inspiration for her songs. Her life has had it’s ups and downs like anyone but by harnessing her pain she has created a document of her life that is more real than simply a record of invented characters and fictional stories.
The new record is called Celilo Falls and has been out in Europe for a few months, but only becomes available in the US on Feb. 15. You can order it here via CDBaby.
