Former ‘The Voice’ songstress Rachael Leahcar will release her new album ‘Shadows’ next week.
Rachael first rose to national prominence via the TV talent competition back in 2012.
Since then, she’s given us three albums – all with Universal Music – ‘Shooting Star’, ‘Romantique’ and ‘Here Comes The Sun’.
Now signed with Fanfare Records, she’s about to gift us her fourth. And this time around, it’s (almost) all about original material.
“I’m overjoyed to finally share this publicly after so many years of writing,” Rachael says of the release.
“On ‘Shadows’, you’ll discover a collection of memories, stories and pieces of me. I wrote most of them on my beloved piano or guitar, and recorded the vocals at my home studio provided by Greg and Ingrid (ma and pa).
“A smile worn in happiness, a tear fallen in sadness, a frenzy of notes from frustration or elation and a spattering of words from love or heartbreak.
“I write songs to connect with people and help them through each phase of life, as music has always helped me. Featuring snatches from various genres, I feel I have found my true voice, and I want to share it far and wide.”
New single ‘What They Don’t Tell You’ was co-penned alongside Aussie favourite Josh Pyke and, according to Rachael, is all about “the things you find out – good and bad – as you grow in life.”
‘Shadows’ will be released next Friday, April 07.
