Rachel Tripp grew up with music surrounding her. With a producer and musician for a father, and constant access to a recording studio, she was raised in an environment that fostered a love for performing, songwriting, and creating.
Fast-forward to present day, and you'll find Rachel currently working on releasing a retro soul/pop EP. She has already recorded four songs, but needs your help (via crowdfunding website indiegogo) to finish the last track, "The Lonely Nobody Could Fill." Since she moved from Fort Mill, SC, to Nashville two years ago, she has been working full-time and putting her savings towards her music. The young artist hopes to reach her goal and be able to record the final song by July 23rd.
Rachel co-wrote "The Lonely Nobody Could Fill" with songwriters Bill DiLuigi and Kirsti Manna, who also co-wrote two other songs on Rachel's upcoming release. In contrast to her bubbly personality, Rachel's songs carry dark subject matter that she describes as "deep confessions." Here's what she had to say about "The Lonely Nobody Could Fill:"
"It starts out setting the scene by saying 'The wine pours, the wax drops.' It's a really dark, desolate, alone space. You're by yourself and reflecting on a past relationship. The song is about wanting someone, and wanting that relationship so much that you have a darkness or obstacle that you can't get over. It's The Lonely that Nobody Could Fill. In the song, you can't find that one thing or that one person who makes you feel whole."
Calling it her first "big-girl purchase," Rachel Tripp's excitement about this upcoming self-titled release is palpable. She has just under two weeks left to reach her crowd-funding goal, so help out a local artist and make a donation to her project!
