Rachel Summerell is one of the brightest new singer/songwriters to step into the Australian country music arena in recent years. Influenced by country, folk and pop, Rachel has a heartfelt writing style with powerful lyrics, catchy melodies and a beautiful voice that knows how to tell a story.


Rachel wrote her first song at seven but life's struggles meant that music became something only dreams were made of. Rachel continued to write but only sang covers in public, winning singing competitions, performing in bands, musicals and choirs - even running a karaoke business. But Rachel's passion for performing her originals never let her be, so with a heavy dose of self-belief, she put her songs 'out there'.


In 2011, Rachel won the Tamworth Songwriters Association National Competition and in 2014, joined LBS Music, released her first single, "I'll Miss You" and won Best New Talent Radio Award for 1629AM Newcastle and Coast FM 963 Gosford. 


In 2015, Rachel released her second single, "You're My Man" which won Rachel the Gold Medallion Media Award for New Talent of the Year and reached no. 3 in the charts in the Netherlands. Three songs from Rachel's debut album, "No Secrets" have reached the Australian country music charts.


Rachel's as yet unreleased song, "The Door" reached the top 30 of the country category in the Australian Songwriters Association National Competition in late 2017.


This year, Rachel's song "One Of The Lucky Ones" was chosen for the 2018 Tamworth Country Music Festival's compilation CD as part of the official festival program.
