“Smoky, sweet and verbose (in the best ways) (Scoutmob.com),” Rachel Zylstra is a confessional songwriter and performer whose music finds a home in church sanctuaries and in dimly-lit music bars alike.
Rachel delivers lyrics rich in wit and narrative. She has self-released three albums and opened for cult favorites including Over the Rhine and David Bazan. Originally of the Midwest, this past May she uprooted from a decade of New York City residence to enter into a season of full-time music and life on the road. Her travels have taken her criss-crossing the Great Lakes states and most recently to Portland area. This fall she will release a new full-length album recorded with her NYC-based band, The Tacit Turn.
Rachel has played all over in the world in Dublin, New York, Milwaukee and Olympia, she’s excited to come play at Crossway Church this September.
