Her name is Rachael Chatoor. Her Web site is here. Her blog is rachaelpachelwasmyname. Both are well worth a visit.

She calls this first video a rough draft of an original song that's about to be released on a compilation CD from Stupid Cancer. You can here the final arrangement by clicking on the widget in the sidebar.

On her blog she says she doesn't think of herself as a recording artist. I predict that's going to change.


  1. I am deeply touched that you found me and chose to share, thank you so much. It is a great pleasure to meet you. I look forward to browsing around here! warmly, Rachael

  2. She is going to go places. She has a great voice. Excellent. :)

  3. What a great discovery you've made, Grandpa!

    I love the rawness of the acoustic version of Standing all the Way, and I love the softer kind of hopefulness in the "bells" of the more finalized version.

    Nice message; nice music; interesting voice.

    I liked the other 2 songs too.

    Good work to you for finding her; good work to Rachael all around!

  4. Thanks for that. Enjoyed both visits.

  5. I love the lack of techno hocus-pocus. This woman is the real deal!
