We are pleased to introduce you to Rachel Assil!
A powerhouse vocalist, songwriter, pianist and producer, her work has led her to collaborate with several Oscar & Grammy Award winning musicians. Her previous work with top producer Polow Da Don caught the attention of Timbaland, and she later signed to his label.
She has played at perennial festivals, headlined some of the most iconic venues in the country and opened for Anthony Hamilton on his nationwide tour. An alumna of ASCAP’s prestigious Lester Sill Workshop, she has performed for some of the most legendary songwriters including Diane Warren, Darrell Brown and Linda Perry. Additionally, as a long-time mentor for underprivileged teens, her philanthropic work includes performing at the annual Los Angeles DEAFestival and other benefits for children with disabilities.
Currently, Rachel & Timbaland are in the studio recording her long-anticipated debut album. Their record ‘Whoever We Are’ is featured on the 2014 visual compilation album ‘Pepsi Beats of the Beautiful Game,’ now available on iTunes, along with her live acoustic album ‘The Opus Unplugged.’
