Rachel Sermanni

After the release of two studio albums, a live album, a plethora of precious EP’s, a near decade of touring, followed by a year of learning what it is to be a Mother, Rachel Sermanni is returning with a new record. 

Her third studio album: So It Turns. 

Recorded in Berlin, three years ago, and inspired by her time studying & volunteering at a Buddhist monastery, ‘So It Turns’ will be released in August 2019. 

Rachel Sermanni is a dynamic (in many senses of the word) singer and songwriter whose performance and lyrics draw from a deep well of mystic lore, dreams, nature and the simple complex experience of being human. 

A contemporary folk musician, influenced by a wealth of genres including jazz, rock, old-time and traditional.   A visual artist who enjoys to draw Naked Ladies and has co-directed a number of her own music videos. 

She was born in the Highlands of Scotland in ’91.

Since 2011, Rachel Sermanni has toured the globe, played alongside artists such as Mumford & Sons, Fink, Ron Sexsmith, John Grant, The Staves, Karine Polwart, The Maes and many many more. 

To name just a few UK festival appearances: The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Belladrum, Wickerman, Loopallu, Reading & Leeds, HebCelt, and Celtic Connections.

Festivals, worldwide: Woodford Folk Fest (Australia), Lotus World Music (Indiana, USA), Rocky Mountain Folks Fest (CO. USA), Calgary Folk Fest (CAN), Dawson City Music festival (CAN), Into The Great Wide Open (Netherlands)

The list goes on……

In the studio she has worked with producers Ian Grimble (Travis, Texas, Manic Street Preachers…), Alex Newport (Bloc Party, Death Cab for Cutie, City & Colour) Axel Reinemer (Jazzanova), Paul Savage (The Delgados, Admiral Fallow, Mogwai, The Twilight Sad) and Colin Macleod. 

Rachel Sermanni’s creativity - and career in with - hasn’t occurred without help. Family members, peers, teachers and employees have been ever supportive and wise in advice and observations. 

Most of Rachel’s astrological being resides in the 5th house; The House Of Fun. Whether or not you adhere to horoscopic notions or not, this works as a succinct way to explain that, for her, Creation equals existence and Creative Expression equals Joy. 

Go witness the joy. She’s on her way to you.
