ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rachel Allyn is a singer/songwriter and recording artist currently living in New Jersey. She has been performing across the region consistently for over six years and has opened for major touring acts including Sara Evans, Thompson Square, Lonestar, The Duhks, Randy Houser, and many more.

One of Rachel’s biggest influences, John Lennon, once said regarding his songwriting process, "You see? You just write what you feel even if you don't know where it'll take you." After releasing a more traditionally flavored country EP in 2009 (Late Nights and Early Mornings), Rachel and her producer, Warren Hibbert, made the conscious decision to take Lennon’s words to heart on her first full-length album, Do It Yourself. No preconceived arrangements, genre boundaries, or creative limits. The resulting music lands somewhere between alternative, singer/songwriter, and country, clearly drawing inspiration from all her musical influences while combining them in a way that’s interesting and unexpected. The album is authentic to Rachel as both a musician and a person.

Do It Yourself features some incredible musicians. B3 player John Ginty is an original member of Robert Randolph and the Family Band and has recently toured with Sheryl Crow, Jewel, and the Dixie Chicks. Rachel met Robby Wilson of Lonestar after opening for them during the production of Do It Yourself, and he graciously agreed to play the iconic bass line on “Dear Prudence.” Fiddler Larry Franklin played with Asleep at the Wheel for seven years and currently plays every Monday night at the famed Station Inn in Nashville with local legends, the TimeJumpers. “Ain’t No Fun” features Brent Mason, who has played with seemingly everyone in Nashville, including Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, and Shania Twain, to name a precious few (not to mention he played on the soundtrack to the movie Home Alone, which makes Rachel extremely happy).
