Artist Rachel Kerr Releases Single ‘Lover Lover’ Debut Album
Multi-Award Winning Recording Artist Rachel Kerr Releases Single ‘Lover Lover’ From Upcoming Debut Album
‘It’s taken me a while but I have used all of my unique experiences, my Caribbean roots, my love for live instrumentation, my appreciation of retro soul and my inspirational lyrics and blended it to create my unique sound. A sound I couldn’t be any more proud of. A sound that is unapologetically me.’
On September 13th 2019 Rachel Kerr released her new single ‘Lover Lover’ from her upcoming debut album (set to be released in spring 2020). Her last single ‘Alive’ garnered 100,000s of streams from Spotify and Apple Music and even caught the attention of Sam Smith who posted the song to his social media. ‘Alive’ also received a GRAMMY Award consideration in 2018. ‘Lover Lover’ is Rachel’s follow up single. The song’s vibrant uptempo instrumentation with live brass meets contemporary Caribbean inspired drums- an ode to her Caribbean heritage. ‘Lover Lover’ like all of Rachel’s songs are self-penned, celebrating the beauty of a love free from drama, carnality and stress – ultimately a superior love that gives peace. In 2018 Rachel Kerr headlined her sold-out show at The O2 Islington with her 9-piece band. Her two hour set of original material showed fans what to expect for her upcoming debut album.
After spending 2015-2017 touring the US, Africa and Europe opening for the likes of Lauryn Hill and Brandy, few singers can also boast personal invitations to sing for the Former US President and UK Prime Minister, but Rachel Kerr is one. After the success of her debut and sophomore EPs ‘Back to Music’ and ‘Getting Started’, Rachel has spent subsequent years honing in her sound. A sound set to establish her as a leading force in music. Rachel’s powerful vocals and inspirational lyrics have often had audiences battling as to what genre she belongs to. However, the singer’s 2016 mixtape entitled ‘Unboxed’ was more than her third studio release title, but her response to the ongoing debate.
