Rachelle Lynn's professional career has been on the rise ever since opening for international superstar Nelly Furtado April 2001 at just 15yrs old. Furtado personally handpicked Rachelle to perform at the McPherson Theatre in their hometown Victoria, BC. Rachelle’s transparency and down-to-earth demeanour won over the audience. The overwhelming applause and standing ovation gave her the courage and affirmation to pursue her musical aspirations and she set a personal goal to one day record her own cd of all original songs.
Since opening for Furtado, Rachelle continued to write prolifically and developed a unique sound that is unmistakably her own. In June 2004, Rachelle performed at an outdoor concert before an audience of tens of thousands in Reykjavik, Iceland. While there, she was filmed for an Icelandic documentary, received radio play and performed an original pop classical piece (Atlantis) for then President of Iceland Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson at his home.
Rachelle has maintained a mentoring friendship with Furtado throughout the years and in 2007 she asked Rachelle to open for her at GM Place for her “Loose” tour. She gave an outstanding solo performance accompanying herself with her keyboard and received a thunderous applause from the audience.
In summer 2008, Rachelle embarked on her longtime goal to record her first full-length album of original songs. She recorded her cd, “Green Lights”, with her band at Bryan Adam’s world-class recording studio, The Warehouse and had it mastered by Grammy award winning mastering engineer, Adam Ayan (Madonna, the Rolling Stones, Carrie Underwood etc.) at Gateway Mastering in Portland, Maine.
“Green Lights” was released December 2010.
