There’s a cool moment about 6 years after you leave high school where you ask what friends have been up to and the answer is something other than “college” or “interning”. Sometimes people have started businesses or moved somewhere new. In the case of Rachael Kennedy, she’s living in Los Angeles & casually writing songs for musicians like Britney Spears.
If you’ve been reading my blog since the beginning, Rachael may be familiar to you. One of my first posts was about her song “Bullet Holes“, almost exactly 2 years ago. Putting that in perspective, it’s WILD to see how much she’s done in two short years. She’s performing her own music, writing for both new and established artists, and writing songs for short films (you can hear one below).
I remember when Rachael introduced me to Imogen Heap’s music in vocal class when we were 16 and I pretended I already knew who she was. I did not. Rachael is always one step ahead of the curve, as evidenced by her entire career thus far. You absolutely should be keeping her on your radar.
