 A Letter to Listeners: A Biography from a Friend and Fellow Writer...


The first apparent feeling when listening to Rachel Sumner sing her songs is focus - she makes you listen. Another thought may occur after - she cares. Rachel's perspicacity when pairing her lucid lyrics with her whimsical compositions is touched by such artistry that few others can approach her level of skill and emotional depth. The effect is magnified by her thoughtful performing. Whether seeing her as the leading lady of acclaimed folk-pop band Twisted Pine, in harmonious tandem with the similarly peerless writer and performer Sam Moss, or as a solo act, Rachel is a joy to watch.
