Rachael Cantu

Rachael Cantu is a singer/songwriter originally from Southern California. Just after her twenty first birthday she moved to Boston, where she had immediate success with the release of her "Blood Laughs" EP . Her haunting vocals and gentle melodies caught the attention of the entire Boston music scene, but it was a couple of Canadians that got her on the road. Touring with Tegan and Sara gave Rachael an opportunity to bring her music to a wider audience. Her second EP, "Run All Night" (Q Division) received critical acclaim and rocketed her up the charts where she sat comfortably in the double digits next to artists such as Neko Case and Ryan Adams on the CMJ top 200. Fueled by the success of her sophmore effort she went back on tour with Tegan and Sara, as well as Ben Lee, Tyler James and Limbeck. Today, you can find Rachael in the midst of writing and recording her next works. She is spending her time in Los Angeles wisely by taking advantage of classic venues to hone her live show, getting it in gear to hit the road once again. Her live show is known to be full of energy and surprises, including guest appearances from talented musicians such as Missy Higgins and Tegan Quin. You can hear her songs in the 2008 IFC film "ANAMORPH" starring Willem Dafoe, and on an upcoming episode of the ABC show "PRIVATE PRACTICE". Keep your ears peeled because there is much more to come!
