When Rachel Angel sings “I wanna be a renegade,” she is speaking to the experience of personal transformation and resilience, like putting on a protective coat of armor to meet the world with grace and courage. The songs on her upcoming EP were inspired by the spirit of outlaw country, her sense of the outlaw is metaphorical rather than literal. These songs are about taking the unconventional artists path, and staring in the face of danger, fear, and pain. This country-folk troubadour takes the listener on a wild journey— physical, emotional, spiritual, and everywhere in between. Both referential to great American songwriters, and wholly original, Rachel’s songwriting prowess and her powerful and evocative voice are not to be missed.
