We spotted Rachel Croft busking in the streets of York and stopped to listen – as did dozens of others. And we stayed and listened some more.
Rachel’s rich vocals play over rhythmic fingerpicked guitar. Her songs are inspired by ethereal Celtic melodies and characterised by thoughtful lyrics and captivating stories. Having performed for 4 years as the vocalist in the Croft and Mullen jazz band, notes of soul and the Great American Songbook are instilled in her vocal style. She is influenced greatly by Eva Cassidy, Laura Marling and Joni Mitchell, as well as more contemporary artists such as London Grammar.
“Rarely have I heard such an effortlessly powerful vocal from any singer…more to be heard from this young lady in the future I’m certain” Jonti Willis, Sine fm.
