I am very proud and excited to annouce the official release of my sixth studio album, SO BRIGHT. .. SO BRIGHT, Rachel Loshak’s deepest and most mature studio album yet, was produced by Grammy™ winning producer Dean Jones at No Parking studio in Rosendale, NY. Keeping the focus on Rachel’s unique bass and vocal foundation, rich layers of harmony, violin, piano, organ, percussion, French horn and alto flute were added to support Rachel’s intimate and hauntingly melodic original songs of love, motherhood, friendship and death.

Sandy Benefit Concert

Tara Eberle-Drouin and I have put together a concert to raise money for organizations that are helping people who are still suffering terribly after Hurricane Sandy in the NY/NJ region. I can’t be down there to deliver food, or really help at all, so I’m doing the only thing I know how to do – sing and get other people to sing!

If you can make it, that would be wonderful. If you can’t make it, but could make a donation or be willing to share the info with all your friends/family in NYC, that would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanksgiving is a great time to GIVE! Tickets available HERE.

For those of you who live a little further north, I’ll be playing our monthly double bill brunch with Gustafer Yellowgold this coming Sunday. Info below.

AND, if you are in NYC with kids and can’t make it to the benefit concert, maybe you’d like to bring them to the Gustafer Yellowgold Holiday Show at Symphony Space this Saturday morning… http://www.symphonyspace.org/event/7473-the-gustafer-yellowgold-show – use the discount code GOLD to get tickets for $12 each!

Oh Girl – Science Fair Song

Filed under: Creative Mum | Tags: , ,

I am honored to have contributed a song on the new release “Science Fair” by Spare the Rock Records, coming out today!

I wrote “Oh Girl” specifically for this release, inspired by memories of my curiosity of the natural and scientific world when I was a girl, measuring how tall the daffodils in my garden grew every spring, and how much snow fall fell on my windowsill every winter (not much, coming from the Southeast of England!)

I recorded the song at home in Kerhonkson, NY, with help from Morgan Taylor, Dean Jones and John Munson!

Here’s some more info about the release…
