RABBIT IN THE ROAD

Rachael Kilgour is an award-winning songwriter and performing artist whose sincere, lyric-driven work bravely walks the line between personal and political.  The 2015 grand prize winner of the esteemed international NewSong Music Performance & Songwriting Competition, Kilgour has been featured at NYC’s Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., and at the Sundance Film Festival. She was also chosen as a winner in the 2017 Kerrville New Folk Contest. 

Kilgour released her newest album, Rabbit in the Road, in March of 2017. Billboard called the work "...a heartfelt slice of master crafted indie folk brimming with the battle-tested capacity to endure the worst in others."

Last week I flew down to Asheville, NC to record a handful of new songs for an upcoming EP. The recording project was part of my winnings from the 2015 NewSong Contest. Sara (Pajunen) wrote some stunning string arrangements for a few of the pieces. She and I joined producer Gar Ragland and the NewSong team at Echo Mountain Studios for three long and glorious days of recording. 

 

Sound an Echo had a successful first tour this June! Check out the video of our adventures as we circled Lake Superior! 

 

At the end of May I participated in the Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition and was chosen as one of six winners! In November we will take a mini tour through Texas together. Made some good friends and heard a lot of good tunes on that trip. 

 

That's all for now! Keep an eye on my website and social media accounts for updates!
