Rachael's first performance was in the synagogue hall in Debden,
dressed up in a sequinned jumpsuit made by her aunt at the tender age of three. She always enjoyed performing at every opportunity at school and youth club and started to learn the guitar at Beal High School.
She took her first lead part as the secretary in the Pyjama Game and in following years as Ma in Oklahoma and Jan in Grease. At the age of 20, she decided to leave full time employment to study performing arts at Barking College. After a brilliant two years she packed up lock
stock and barrel for Seaton in Devon to work as a teamster (bluecoat) for Havenwarner.
The next musical adventure was as lead singer of a girl band (who played their instruments) called Treacle.
A move back to East London resulted in becoming the lead singer for a covers band called The Meerkats, which was a lot of fun but there weren’t enough gigs.
She met another singer called Jennie at an audition and they decided to form a covers duo called Coffee and Cream. They worked a lot of local pubs clubs and holiday parks on the circuit.
Her “main” job is as vocal coach in 7 local schools but still loves entertaining in venues across London, Essex and Kent, whether solo or part of a duo/band.
She has now realised her ambition of producing a 10 track original album with John Clarke, “Songs From The Sofa” which can be
