Rachael has always had a passion for listening to and performing
music and bought her first guitar at age ten (although, unfortunately
for her family at the time, couldn't play a note at that stage!)
She then went on to study Contemporary Music and Performing Arts
at school and college.
Rachael has performed
in several groups over the years including 'Project', where she
played bass guitar and sang, 'Just Us' and, more recently, '28
Days' , a duo she formed with Tom Eggar back in 2008 in which
she sang and played acoustic guitar. For three years, 28 Days
performed many gigs in and around Taunton (including the River
Cottage Canteen, Axminster) but decided to call it a day when
Rachael became pregnant with her daughter, Jesse (as playing guitar
was becoming increasingly difficult!!).
Not long after
this in the summer of 2011, Robert got in touch with Rachael and
mentioned an audition opportunity as Jess would soon be moving
on to pastures new. Rachael was keen to continue performing and
the audition led to the offer of lead singer with Best Kept Secret
(which she was extremely pleased to accept!).
She can't wait
to perform with Best Kept Secret and hopes to be doing so for
a long time to come .
