Rahael creates an immersive and cinematic world that celebrates the intimacy of love. A self-taught guitarist, Rahael’s songwriting is emotive and soul-baring inspired by her personal experiences and guided by the ethereal moments love and relationships have to offer. With a recent move to Nashville, Rahael wants to bring the music she creates propelled by the traditions of country, country-pop and country-folk music to wider audiences, as she works to release new her debut EP All Four Corners in September 2022. Themes of self-love, growth, and family, coupled with her heart-wrenching melodies will have the listener along, long after the songs have ended.

Rahael is set to release her new single Clayton on June 8, her strongest song to date. Clayton is about discovering her voice, being brave, and seeking new adventures. Listen below.

Stay Gold

In 2019, Rahael released her first single Stay Gold, recounting the beauty of
unbreakable friendships over a driving indie-pop riff. Memories like these have
become central themes in her music, allowing her audience to experience life in its’ sincerest form. Drawing from influences like Donovan Woods and Lucy Rose, Rahael channels the most vulnerable parts of her soul to delicately craft stories in her indie-folk, lovesick refrains.
