Rachel Rodriguez grew up in Michigan, belting out traditional Mariachi and Country music, in her father’s band. He was her biggest influence, and always encouraged her to embrace and infuse all that she is into her music and songwriting. She honed her skills singing in honky tonks, at family events, fiestas and festivals. After years of singing along side her father, Rachel decided it was time to branch out to find her own voice, which brought her to Nashville, TN.
Rachel has established herself, in Music City, as an enchanting front woman, with her powerful vocals and versatile repertoire. She has taken her musical roots and has created a style of her own. The combination of her Latino heritage, rock n roll attitude and soulful voice give her a unique sound. Since her arrival to Nashville, she’s had the privilege to work and perform with some of the industry’s top talent. You can find her performing with a variety of line-ups, at many of Nashville’s notable venues.
Inspired by the desire to introduce her children to Spanish and their Latino heritage, Rachel wrote, recorded and recently released a bilingual children’s album called “Songs for My Little Amigos”. That, along with her self-titled album, “Rachel Rodriguez”, can be found on iTunes and cdbaby.
In addition to Rachel’s roles as wife, mother, and performer; she also teaches Creative Movement & Music at local pre-schools, volunteers at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and is an Alumni member of the WMBA (Women’s Music Business Assoc.).
