From her Berkeley childhood to her Cambridge cutting-of-teeth to her NYC adventures to her San Francisco sidewalk sessions, Rachel Garlin has toured internationally and has spent the quarantine cultivating poetry, activism, and compassion in her community. Her Spring 2020 album, Mondegreens (produced by long-time collaborator Julie Wolf) was highlighted by CQ as “the album you need to be listening to right now.” With her vintage Gibson J50 guitar, Rachel devoted the month of February to writing a new song each day and sharing the creative process--spontaneous and vulnerable. Rachel’s Sidewalk Sessions (playing music for her neighborhood alongside her wife and three kids at the front of their garage), caught the attention of the San Francisco Chronicle and former Rolling Stone Editor Ben Fong-Torres on his MoonAlice radio station. Rachel's forthcoming recording, Late to Bloom, will be released later this year.
