Rachel Wong brings an unique soulful pop sound that will have you tapping your foot and humming along. Drawing upon personal experiences, her lyrics connect to everyone’s encounters of life, love and loss. Growing up in the church Rachel was not exposed to much mainstream music until her teenage years but developed her love for feeling music through leading worship with her brother and sister. As an artist, Rachel is influenced by the musical likings of the late Michael Jackson, John Mayer, Lauryn Hill, James Morrison and Sara Bareilles, as she mixes a soulful vocal style with pop melodies unmatched in the music industry today.
Music infused with self-determined passion is what drives Rachel to continue exposing the world to her heartfelt music from an Asian American woman. This determination has helped her garner international recognition as tracks off of “Curtain Fall” can now be heard on radio stations in Canada and the Philippines.
In 2012, Rachel beat out over 3,000 bands in the US to secure her top 12 finalist spot for Ford’s Gimme the Gig II Contest. As part of the contest, she was able to showcase her original music in front of Grammy-award winning producer Don Was and renowned sound engineer Krish Sharma for a KTLA Television feature. With 2 albums out, Rachel is working on her new EP, Getting There, at the legendary Milkboy Studios in Philadelphia.
Her single Perfectly Imperfect was released in April of 2015 and landed her international radio and television placement for defying all odds to get a piano on a Malibu cliff. Domestically, she was able to talk about the process of the video and meaning behind the song on Good Morning America and Inside Edition. The song is dedicated to those who struggle with self-worth and self-love. She’s working with local and international organizations to help promote a healthy self-image among young and old people alike.
Her newest EP, “Getting There” is her best record yet. She worked on the songs at the legendary MilkBoy Studios in Philadelphia. The music is bigger, better, and greater than ever. Purchase the songs on iTunes Rachel Wong!
