Rachel Rossos and Michael Gallant are at it again. Come out to Farley's on Saturday, March 21st for some beautiful folk rock storytelling, featuring vocals, keys, guitar, and melodica.
About Rachel and Mike:
Rachel Rossos provides the melody. Born in New Jersey and schooled in New York City, the 25-year-old folk rock storyteller grew within the Manhattan club scene, weaving together guitar, voice, and bittersweet poetry in such venues as the Knitting Factory, CBGBs Gallery, and Postcrypt Coffeehouse. Her 2004 debut CD "Rated R" is available on CDBaby and in most digital retail stores, including iTunes. From 2002 to 2006, Rachel worked in development for The New York Pops orchestra under the direction of Skitch Henderson in Carnegie Hall. In 2006, Rachel moved to the west coast where she is now the Director of Development and Marketing for the New Century Chamber Orchestra. She has performed in various San Francisco venues, including Hotel Utah, Encounter Studios, and Retox Lounge. In August and October 2006, Rachel was a featured guest on the Cable TV show "SF Open Mic." In 2007, Rachel's voice could be heard in the Studio Theatre's production of "The Pillowman" in Washington, D.C. and on the third album produced by Nick Rossos, Bohemian Fusion. Most recently, she sang background vocals for the debut album from Ol' Cheeky Bastards. Rachel currently studies voice with Sue Govali and Ruth Rainero.
