about

Rachel Taylor has honed her creative blend of alternative folk, 1950’s country and thoughtful unplugged pop, through Jazz performance and the study of songwriting at Berklee College of music. Mentored by critically acclaimed singer / songwriter / producer, Michael Been, Rachel has gone on to work with producer/songwriter and grammy winner Charlie Peacock. This musical journey led her to be a founding member of the Indie Roots Folk, girl trio, Maeve, whose music has been in regular rotation on college radio.

Through her love for the art of songwriting, she explores the intimate and challenging portions of her own journey, believing that transparency and revealing what she would rather hide, is the most universal. The result is a beautiful, vulnerable and poignant reflection of human connection. Rachel Taylor’s release “Heartbreak is for Everyone”, produced by Peter Hayes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, is what she believes to be her best work yet. Vocals reminiscent of Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn, are what sets this compilation of sultry, haunting and yet familiar songs apart. It’s soaring melodies, combined with profound lyrics and vocals are resonating with her rapidly growing audience.

Track Name: Heartbreak Is For Everyone
My mama she told me and her mama too
Love don’t come easy it comes with the blues
Not matter the warning it finds it’s way thru
Heartbreak is for everyone, it don’t matter who

It starts like a sunrise bright colors and such
And you think your the one to get through untouched
(But it) comes in full circle, not a thing you can do
Heartbreak is for everyone, now I know it’s true

It don’t cost a thing it’s free as a bird
One day flying high and then down to earth
The storm’ll come thru won’t be left in one piece
Eyes will be opened, and all will believe

The one consolation that comes with a price
It’s the human condition, its just part of life
I don’t know your story or what you’ve been told
But heartbreaks for everyone, no ones alone

There’s no exemption, it won’t pass you by
It never runs out, it never runs dry
It’s making it’s rounds, no it’s not a thief
It’s leaves you a gift you don’t want to receive

Not matter the warning it finds it’s way thru
Heartbreak is for everyone, it don’t matter who
Track Name: Satisfy
We’ve been at it again

I’ve been making a scene

Getting back in the ring

Don’t know where it’ll lead

Don’t know where it’ll lead Don’t know where it’ll lead

Gonna put up my fists

Maybe throw the first punch

Well I’ll tell you this

I think there’s gonna be blood

I think there’s gonna be blood I think there’s gonna be blood

I’ve been trying to escape you

But I’m starting to think

Maybe there is just no escaping {avoiding}

Universal suffering

I’ve been trying to find a way

Trying to fill this dreams

When the truth is you can never satisfy me

You can’t satisfy me

Are you gonna look up

Make me weak in the knees

Do I have to break down

make you see what I need
Track Name: Broken
BROKEN

I’m stuck being broken, I’m frozen in time
I’m stuck being broken, and nearly out of my mind


Ever since that heart crush day

The future slipped away

Now I’m trapped inside this moment where sadness never leaves
Like a shroud for someone dead
Around the dreams that we once had
With a memory of love that no longer has any breath

I’m stuck being broken, and long for a sign
I’m stuck being broken, and frozen in this time

Hope is left behind to fade
Promises turned into pain
Love is lost and buried somewhere within that I can’t find
As I fall in to my sleep
The only place where I’m released
From the prison I find myself in, every time I wake


Is it only me, will it always be

Like a stone in my hand, just a fool’s broken plan

I’m stuck being broken, I’m frozen in time
I’m stuck being broken, and nearly out of my mind
Track Name: You Might Be Surprised
The birds and bees The yous and an me’s

the way you smile

the way you make me weak in the knees

YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED

So tell me whats on your mind

The way you stare I'm well aware But would I dare

to tell you whats on my mind

you might be surprised

Let's be honest Then you wouldn't have to guess

On Sunday we’ll just have to confess (then I could get this off my

and everything will be just fine

If I could be honest (There’s) nothin I would rather do

Then to tell you what I want from you

I would tell you but I’m just a little scared but I’d open up my heart if I knew you really cared.

You with me alone with you The way you talk

What am I supposed to do?

boy if you only knew

A little shy But if you tried I can’t deny

There’s somethings here I don’t want to hide

You might be surprised

Go back to CHORUS

Do do do do

lets be honest

Then you wouldn't have to guess

and I can get this off my chest

and everything will be just fine

If I could be honest

(There’s) nothin I would rather do

Then to tell you what I want from you

and we might be surprised.
