Album Notes
"Your music is truly beautiful. I find it highly refreshing. Top notch playing as well!" (Eric Stadler, recording artist)

Rahel is making waves with a wide reaching repertoire that is intelligent, musically sophisticated and ethnically diverse. With sometimes driving rhythms and sometimes gentle sounds, Rahel brilliantly fuses jazz, Middle East rhythms, Far east mantras, appropriate contemporary stylings and songs to tickle the imagination. Fascinating for music lovers of all ages, cultures and faiths.

Jam Music Magazine writes: "I was so surprised when I turned on Rahel's TIME PASSES BY. It is not the typical contemporary singer/songwriter album that I expected. Overall that's a good thing... Rahel has a wonderful voice, strong and expressive."

Seven-year old Julia said it best: "I love the music. You sing wonderful. Makes my heart feel good."

"A woman of great faith, Rahel can cover many emotional bases through the language of music alone. A gifted and talented songwriter, Rahel has a lot to say and she says it well with a beautiful diverse collection of songs." - Vicky Arico; Singer/Songwriter/Artist

"Rahel's music sounds smooth, so very modern, and even 'hot'. There are hints of jazz, Middle East blends and further East mantras." - FolkNotes; Israel

"Your music is so very calming." - Mariposa Museum, NH

"You know how once in a while you just get overwhelmed with emotion? That's what happens when I sit down and listen to your music. Your music is very emotional, revealing, positive and healing." - Bill; Montana

"I admire your ability to express and share your spirituality in music." - Steve Blunt; Children's Musician & Storyteller

Very good. Intimate, revealing and original
I really enjoy "Hey Love." It's a very positive, upbeat song. Most of the music is very original and upbeat. A thoughtful first CD.

A gifted, soulful songwriter, Ann Rachel has a lot to say, and she says it well
I am not afraid when life turns me around, sings Ann Rachel in Where I'm Bound, and that sentiment reflects the tone of this whole collection of songs. Many express a sense of wandering lost, yet there is an everpresent underlying courage and hope that the journey is purposeful and worthwhile despite the trials. The songs share a common spirit, as if Ann was on the cusp of a sad ending and a hopeful new beginning. I can hear the empowerment of a woman starting over.

I enjoyed the powerful harmonies and sparkling mandolin in Time Passes By and Hey Love. I liked the unusual strumming pattern Ann used to punctuate the beat in Hey Love - wow, what a song of joy!

Clearly Ann is a woman of great faith, and she can cover many emotional bases through the language of music alone. Although I don't understand Hebrew, the beautiful chord progressions and quiet vocals in Babylon tenderly express hope rising out of sorrow.

Ann's singing style is like Suzanne Vega's in that she sounds like she's speaking in tones; there is no vibrato (except for the very first sound in Pierrot). I like the quiet softness of her singing in Pierrot (a lovely song) better than the hard-drivin' style vocals in Straight in the Eye, but on the other hand, I really love the hard-drivin' harmonies.

Golden sun, rainbow colored skies surround you as you go. Move forward arms open wide, you've nothing to do but grow: That's Ann Rachel's joyful philosophy of life, in 3/4 time from Whenever You're You. A gifted, soulful songwriter, she has a lot to say, and she says it well with this beautiful, diverse, collection of songs.
