Call in to speak with the host
Rachel Schain is a passionate, talented performer, drawing comparisons to Tori Amos, Joni Mitchell, and Dar Williams. Music has been in her heart for as long as she can recall. At age 12 she finally started taking voice lessons to hone in on the music magic you hear today. She performed in school choirs and synagogue whenever she could all through college, where she studied voice. While Rachel has been deeply involved in many aspects of the music industry such as promotions, on-air talent on a Long Island radio station, and good old fashioned fandom, performing music is where she felt she belonged. In addition to the three amazing artists listed above, Rachel counts Blues Traveler, Kate Miller-Heidke, Ben Folds, Rufus Wainwright, Elvis Costello, and OK Go as her greatest musical influences
Bluebird & Skoko are a buzzing combination of deep Chicago blues and dirty rock’n’roll energy guided by the spirit of Screaming Jay Hawkins, Billie Holiday, Muddy Waters, The Cramps, and all those artists inspired by the fire inside. Their music is the expression of passion for music and lust for life. They sing and play from the guts, guided by that mysterious creature called Mojo.
It's good to talk.
