Hey! Thank you for visiting me here. I am Rahel (Rah-ckhel, as in Bach). I am a musician, singer-songwriter, Certified Clinical Therapeutic, educator, and writer. Yup and also a mom of two incredibly amazing adult kids.
Music has been in my life for pretty much as long as I can remember. I consider myself a "Folk" musician - I write songs, compose tunes, play the guitar and sing.
It seems, however, as I've been told by many, that I am NOT a folk musician. Apparently I somehow don't fit the mold.
"WHAT? So then how do I classify myself and my music?"
"You're unique, " I've been told. "You have your own style and your songs are in a league of their own."
"Oh dear. Well, there is no category called 'Unique'. Eclectic maybe? Contemporary? Ambient? World?"
"Yes, those and more. All of them. Versatile. You're music is beautiful. I love your music. It's just, well, unique Like you!"
Welcome to my unique world. If I might offer one small piece of advice? Please don't postpone JOY!
Welcome to my blog, "The Eccentric Musician".
