Announcing - The Moonlights! 

Dear Friends,   

I am very happy and excited to announce the upcoming February 10th release of a new album, from a new collaboration between myself and the wonderful and extraordinary Dean Jones! We worked together all through the winter and spring this year, writing songs, sharing them, then recording them right away.  

I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work again with Dean, to be challenged with my songwriting and ideas, to be able to share in his songs and most of all to have been able to…

Another summer of song 

The summer ahead looks glorious!

I will be back at The Rail Trail Cafe in Rosendale NY for a couple of concerts - joined by a gaggle of wonderful people including but not limited to... Morgan Taylor, Jennifer Lewis Bennett, Dean Jones, Mark Bernstein, and The Rondout Girls Choir who I have been teaching over the past year. 

I am also very excited to share that Dean Jones and I have been quietly and peacefully working away at an album together, of songs for children. Updates to follow!
 

Hot, hot, HOT! 

Okay, it's been too long! I have been enjoying my time over the last eighteen months focusing on my Waldorf teacher training. My music is never far away.  I have a concert coming up in Suffolk, England on August 7th, and will be so happy to be out of the hot and humid Northeastern USA! My whole body is not meant for it. Look out for some concerts coming up in the fall and winter, once the cooler air comes in, I'll be going out more!

Happy New Year - it's gonna be great!  

I'm excited for 2014. I'm going to work with my husband, Morgan Taylor, on a brand new album of duets and co-writes. We have played and performed together on and off for years, and when we do, it always feels so great. So we've decided to make it official!

"An Evening of Music with Rachel Loshak and Morgan Taylor" - kicking off the new year with a performance to raise funds for our new record, as well as funds and awareness for Planned Parenthood of the Mid-Hudson Valley, on February 16th, here in Woodstock…

SO BRIGHT - thank you  

To everyone who has supported me on this journey, musicians who have worked with me, friends and fans who have contributed to make it all possible. Making this album has been a huge and transforming process for me, and I feel fulfilled and joyful now that it is out in the world. 

Thank you so much everyone. 
love,
Rachel

SO BRIGHT - Golden Touches 

Dean has been working very hard to finish mixing SO BRIGHT, preparing to master hopefully this coming week. Gene Paul is on standby ready to master it as soon as it comes. I keep listening, to finalize mixes and to consider the order, and keep hearing all the special touches of gold that have been brought to the songs by the incredible musicians and singers who ventured into the straw bales with Dean and I.

Here are two very special people who have connected especially deeply to my songs and whom I am so…Read more

SO BRIGHT - be a part of making it shine... 

 Dear Friends,

I have been working on a new album, my first in several years since having my two lovely boys, Harvey and Ridley. They mean the world to me. Also I'm learning that to be the mother I want to be, I need to allow myself to be the woman and artist that I am. For me, being myself is being with music - writing it, recording it, performing and sharing it. As a mother I'm learning that it's okay to ask for help - so now I'm applying that to my music, and asking friends to help me finish and share…Read more
