Rachel Brown To Perform at The Darby in NYC

Singer-songwriter Rachel Brown performs at The Darby, tomorrow, March 7th, 2013.  Brown, who holds a residency at NYC's famed supper club, will be performing multiple sets, beginning acoustically and finishing off accompanied by a full band.  The show kicks off at 7:30 pm. For reservations, call 212.242.4411.  Brown will also be performing at The Darby on March 14th, 21st, and 28th, at 7:30pm.

Brown's debut EP, Building Castles, has received the praise of critics and tastemakers alike. Glamour.com applauded the EP, writing that, "the songs...have a feeling of worn-in comfort. And her sensually soulful vocals carry the EP's captivating mélange of sounds - from Caribbean to hip-hop and world fusion - with uncanny ease, while conveying joy." DailyCandy declared that "the hype is justified." Celebrity fans include Wyclef Jean, John Stamos, Jaden Smith, and Prince Amukamara.

The singer-songwriter, who was born and raised in New York City with Ethiopian, Bermudian and Southern roots, fuses pop, Caribbean, Hawaiian, country, hip-hop and world sounds into an original and captivating groove.

With no formal musical training, Brown found her voice organically. "I would pick up my guitar and teach myself how to play by writing songs," says Brown. "I just played until it sounded right." Having only been performing publicly since her junior year in college, the Harvard graduate's (she was selected as one of Harvard's "15 Most Interesting Seniors" in 2010) honest lyrics and melodic sound have secured exposure not often seen by a new artist. Brown has been featured by the New York Post and PerezHilton.com and has opened for the likes of Mary J. Blige, Robin Thicke, John Legend and Quincy Jones.
