Rachel Rodriguez – Bilingual Storyteller

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.

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.
