"Beautifully played and presented, Dust And Gold should appeal to those with an interest in Americana or the folk scene. A shimmering thing of beauty."
Miniature Music Press
Cardiff “Gig of the week - ..sheer skill & variety of musicianship as well as understated quiet charm ultimately wins out.”.
With a voice keening between soulful, wispy and delicate and with gritty storytelling doused in humour and wry sweetness, 'Dust and Gold' resounds as a startlingly affecting work.
8 out of 10
Rachel's most accessible album and a good place to start discovering her talent.
Melding together element of jazz, folk, blues, Americana, and gospel, the result ...evoke thoughts of Nick Drake, early Joni Mitchell or Gillian Welch.
Adam Wilson Quiet Revolution, 102.3 HFM Radio
“ Dust and Gold has songs that really draw you in set against an acoustic backdrop with hints of Americana and folk. I can’t stop playing this album. Thoroughly recommended.”
