Rachael Kilgour
Album Release

Rachael Kilgour is a Minnesota-based songwriter and performing artist whose sincere, lyric-driven work has been called both brave and humane. The 2015 grand prize winner of the esteemed international NewSong Music Performance & Songwriting Com-petition, Kilgour has been featured at NYC’s Lincoln Center and by the ASCAP Music Cafe at the Sundance Film Festival. She was also a finalist in the 2015 Telluride Troubadour Contest. A versatile performer, Kilgour has shared stages with the likes of indie artists Haley Bonar & Jeremy Messersmith as well as folk legends Greg Brown, Cheryl Wheeler & Catie Curtis.

Kilgour’s third album, Rabbit in the Road, due out March 3rd, 2017, was produced by Catie Curtis with help from Crit Harmon and Gar Ragland and crafted at Harmon’s home studio in Medford, MA and Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC. The album takes an intimate and often painful look at a failed marriage and the loss of family. Kilgour’s writing and delivery cut deep, with resolute simplicity. Sorrow, rage, resilience and compassion exist side by side within a series of honest and memorable melodies. The collection of work stands tall on a foundation of vulnerability and opens the door to moments of profound connection.

Billboard recently premiered the song "Deep Bruises" in advance of Rabbit In The Road's March 3 release, saying, "...when Kilgour sings “No one’s predictable as you,” there’s a steadfast confidence to her voice, which lingers around the guitar and keystrokes like smoke above a dying fire. There’s hints of Stevie Nicks and Neko Case in her pensive, almost rustic vocals, which do great justice to the song’s solemn mood."

Tickets are $15/advance, $20/door, $5/students (18 and younger).
Tickets are available in advance at Art Beat of Hayward, 15845 W. 2nd Street or may be purchased ONLINE.
