Music You Don't Know You Like Yet




This talented and unique Ani influenced artist got together with musical genius Andres Karu who provides drums, bass, some piano, keyboard, guitar, and even some vocals to provide the perfect touch to Notpop’s first album. Rachel has an extremely interesting style of music, combining the smooth feel, vocals and drums of jazz with strong folk guitar. This 22-year-old is fresh on the music scene but this album speaks volumes with her fun and compelling songwriting and raw musicality. Some songs to hit up are the intro track “Drought,” the following track “This Gun,” and the funky Karu piano lined track 6 “Orion.” Rachel isn’t shy to the piano in tracks 1, 2, and 9 “1984.” -Jake Burritt
