Rachel Cole (Born Rachel Paschket) began her musical career as a child, singing in church choirs and music camps in her hometown of Franklin, Tennessee. Shortly after moving to southern California as an adolescent, Rachel's vocal abilities received recognition in the forms of a MACY Award as well as an OUTLOOK Award, both for best overall vocal performance. After spending early high school years training in a musical theater environment at Laguna Beach High School and OCHSA, Rachel took her musical knowledge and applied to her southern roots. This bred a rabid appreciation for bluegrass and roots music, prompting her to join The Stolen Faces, where she would recreate the vocal abilities of Donna Jean Godchaux in a touring Grateful Dead tribute from 2015-2017. From singing with Allen Thompson and Elizabeth Cooke, to starting her own band with Bradley Rosen (The Stone Hollers) in Portland, Oregon, Elaine has followed her passion of delving into the Americana. Rachel released her first solo original effort, "Wait For Rain EP" in August 2017. She has recently released her first single, "BLAME IT ON THE ROSES" with the help of some sessions friends in her hometown of Nashville, Tennessee. This single has taken shape as a bonus track on the rerelease of "Wait For Rain". OUT NOW! The single has since received rave reviews, as well as various spots on Spotify Playlists, and was even featured on Alternative Root's Magazine Top Ten in Americana.
