After playing two spellbinding London shows – Union Chapel and The Lexington – folk-noir balladeer Rachel Sermanni embarks on a cross-country tour this autumn, taking in 20 dates, including London’s Bush Hall on September 26th.
Highland born Rachel has supported the likes of Michael Kiwanuka, Elvis Costello, Fink and Ron Sexsmith but has carved her own niche with the kind of tough, witty, observational outpourings which borrow from the troubadour tradition.
She’s got a glint in her eye which keeps you guessing and after releasing her debut EP – ‘Black Currents’ – earlier on in the year, Rachel’s full-length album ‘Under Mountains’ is due out September 17th on her own Middle of Nowhere Recordings.
It dallies with rich, poetic warbles like ‘Breathe Easy’, dramatic clinchers like ‘The Fog’, undulating orchestrations like ‘Black Currents’ and features standout out track ‘Bones’; all songs which look out at the world with eyes wide open.
