Rachel Rodriguez is a singer, songwriter, mother and teacher. She has over 20+ years of dance teaching experience and has been performing in one way or another since she was 7. She grew up in Mid-Michigan, belting out traditional Mariachi and Country music, in her father’s band. He was her biggest influence, and always encouraged her to embrace and infuse all that she is into her music and songwriting. She honed her skills singing in honkytonks, family events, fiestas and festivals. After years of singing alongside her father, Rachel decided it was time to branch out to find her own voice, which brought her to Nashville, TN.

Since her arrival to Nashville, she’s had the privilege to work and perform with some of the industry’s top talent, on stage and in the studio. Rachel has established herself, in Music City, as an enchanting front woman, with her powerful vocals and versatile repertoire. She has taken her musical roots and has created a style of her own. The combination of her Latino heritage, rock n’ roll attitude and soulful voice give her a unique sound.

Inspired by the desire to introduce her children to Spanish and their Mexican heritage, Rachel wrote and recorded a children’s album called “Songs for My Little Amigos”. She teaches Bilingual Music and Movement at local schools and daycares. Her curriculum includes music, dance, and Spanish. She stays busy conducting bilingual school presentations, Educator Workshops, and Bilingual Song & Storytimes, shining a light on Nashville’s diverse community.
Rachel also volunteers at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and is an Alumni member of the Women’s Music Business Association. She’s passionate about nurturing children’s creativity and sharing her love of the Performing Arts. Nothing makes her happier than watching children experience of the joy of music.
