Rachel Croft

Featured on Netflix and BBC 2, Rachel Croft is an “emotive and uncompromising alternative artist at the top of her game” (Atwood Magazine) with a vocal range that flows effortlessly from fierce power to deadly soft.

Hailing from London, Rachel’s thunderous and cinematic works have been synced on the BBC and Netflix, premiered in leading global outlets such as CMT, BBC Radio and Fresh On The Net, and featured on the Caffè Nero playlist rotation at 600+ UK locations.

Her tempestuous, female-forward songwriting and vivid stage presence have been making waves in the UK and beyond, performing at iconic venues such as the Troubadour in London, the Bitter End in New York and the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville; as well as gracing festivals including Cambridge and Moseley, and selling out venues across Europe on regular tours.

“In possession of a voice that boasts several unique tones, she dances between gentle, angry and a Grace Slick-like mystique”
