Late Nights & Early Mornings
Rachel Allyn is a young country singer/songwriter whose talent has gotten her around the block a few times in very few years. Her voice is full of emotion, power, and a grace reminiscent of some of the great female artists that have come before her. She has one foot squarely rooted in country music and the other in classic rock and roll, one hand firmly on today's sound and the other holding onto the classics. Rachel represents the past and the present in country music and does so with respect, talent and class. Rachel has performed in a wide variety of venues small and large crossing from Nashville Tennessee, to New York City and even out in California. She has sung a duet at a live performance with country legend Bobby Bare and has managed to get onstage to do impromptu performances with Gretchen Wilson and Shania Twain. She has also had the privilege to work in the studio with producers such as Ron Haffkine, Don Oriolo and Con Fullam. 'Late Nights and Early Mornings' is Rachel's first fully produced EP release. The EP contains a mix of songs that represent just a few of Rachel's musical influences. From the driving modern bluegrass sound of 'Stand Still' to the southern rock tinged 'Gettin' By', the powerfully bare acoustic arrangement of 'When the Young Ones Go' and the sweet ballad 'Bury Myself in Your Arms Tonight'. And finishing off the EP is the down home rockabilly sound of 'You Drive Me Crazy'. Many talented souls lent their skills to the making of this EP. Many going above and beyond the call of duty to make it the best it could be.
