Rachel Barror is a singer/songwriter, originally from Dublin, who now lives in London. Surrounded by music from a young age, Rachel developed her talent as a singer and songwriter, taking inspiration from artists and producers that include the likes of Prince, Erykah Badu, Alicia Keys, Jill Scott, India Arie, Stevie Wonder, Madonna, Tori Amos, Cinematic Orchestra, Hans Zimmer, Bonobo and SIA.
With a background in classical piano, Rachel’s compositional talent has seen her work with a plethora of songwriters and producers that include Steve Dubs – Chemical Brothers, Ruadhri Cushnan – Mumford & Sons, and Ed Sheeran.
She also co-wrote 'Chameleon Life' for Sony Music, resulting in a nomination for the Meteor Choice Music Prize Irish Song of The Year. Most recently she has taken part in various songwriting camps with labels such as 23rd Precinct/Nottinghill Music and Fairwood Music honing her writing skills. Her most recent single was titled 'I Will Follow' and she is currently signed to 23rd Precinct Music Publishing.
With regular work coming Rachel’s way as a session singer and performer in London, it’s fair to say that her success as a solo artist has only begun.
When asked about the meaning behind her latest single, Rachel had this to say:
“[Ground Up] reflects all the mixed emotions I’ve been experiencing during this time.I actually wrote and produced it from my living room , a place where I've been spending a lot of time! I wanted to keep the spontaneity and organic message of the song without overthinking the process.
Speaking with my friends I’ve found that even though we’ve all had different experiences, the feelings are pretty much the same. To me it really just emphasises that we’re all on this road together and even though we may feel lonely we’re definitely not alone. By speaking up about it and reaching out to others for help can only strengthen us.”
