Rachel Croft

Rachel Croft is an up and coming British singer-songwriter based in York.  Her music is influenced by the ethereal melodies of Celtic folk music and thoughtful storytelling lyrics of the singer-songwriter greats, invigorated with hints of more contemporary instruments.

Rachel started her slow-burning songwriting career, crafting the long-awaited first single “Only Dreams” in 2017, which was played on BBC Radio 6 and featured on Tom Robinson’s Fresh On the Net. This was followed by her debut album, “Hours Awake” in 2019, which was over 95% funded by followers across the world, culminating with a packed-out album launch at The Crescent, York. This marked the start of her regular tours of the Netherlands.

Along with writing her own music, in 2019 she released a cover album called Live at Southbank Social 2019 which can be purchased from her shop here.  Featuring tracks such as Wonder World, Killing Me Softly, and a version of Careless Whisper George Michael would have been proud of…

Rachel is now back in the studio, throwing her efforts in a more gritty direction for 2021, exploring more soul and blues-orientated sounds and styles. These much anticipated new pieces speak of revenge and strength, an expression of another side of her which has yet to be heard.
