The Laughing Lesbians are at it again! This time we got a chance to chat up the sassy and sexy Rachel B, who leaves no question; she’s the boss! Rachel was delightfully sweet when we spoke with her andAi?? honestly, we were not expecting the kick-ass babe that rocked the screen in her debut music video for her aptly named song “I’m The Boss.” Rachel was able to take a quick break from taking names and pounding out the jams to talk to us about her experience as a musician and what the future holds for her. We can’t wait to see what this lady has in store!
When did you start finding your voice and realizing music was the direction you wanted your life to go?
Probably somewhere around the age of three, when I started saying ai???when I grow up Iai??i??m going to be a singer.” That’s around the time I began performing for my parents friends, grocery stores, the playground and whoever would listen. I used to leave the lunch room in middle school to go write songs. Music and songwriting has always been my outlet. Finding my voice has taken much longer and it’s a never ending process.
Who are your biggest musical inspirations?
Early on, I was fortunate to find and fall in love with classic Jazz singers & Motown. Some of my favorites are: Ella Fitzgerald, Minnie Riperton, Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, the Supremes, The Temptations, and Bill Withers, to name a few. Some of the contemporary artists I adore are: Amy Winehouse, Alicia Keys, Jessie Ware, Norah Jones and Adele.
Your song, ai???Iai??i??m The Bossai??? is a serious girl power song with a great message. What was the inspiration behind the song and is there a personal experience or story behind the song?
Thank you and yes, I hope it inspires all people, woman and men alike, to be a Boss! Honestly, this song ties into your first question in that it has helped me find my voice. Iai??i??m a bold and complicated individual and sometimes it gets me into trouble! This song is just about owning who you are in a fun and unapologetic way. For myself, Itai??i??s about the road to becoming my own boss as a young woman, pursuing a career as an independent artist. I hope that people hear the song and that it gives them that little extra sass to go out there and be a boss in whatever it is that drives them!
As an up and coming artist what has been your biggest lessons learned as you navigated your way to where you are now? Would you change anything?
Ou! There have been many many lessons but I think the biggest lesson is learning to understand, love and own who I am. I believe that most of us are our own biggest obstacles to overcome, no matter what we’re pursuing. A lot of people have a family member or someone who understands the industry to help guide them and get their foot in the door. I have often wished that I had that type of mentor, but I wouldnai??i??t change my situation because learning these lessons on my own has truly taught me how to be the boss of my own life.
What are your goals for the future? ai???Iai??i??m The Bossai??? has been out only a few days and is already successful. Do you think you will continue on the theme of ai???women empowerment?ai??? order zoloft online cheap, acquire dapoxetine.
There’s a lot in store! I’m releasing my first full length album this month, touring a lot this year and have already started writing for the second album. The theme of “women empowerment” will always be present in my message because it’s how I live my life. My friends and family are all bosses in their own right and I meet new people with the same perspective every day. My friends, family and community inspire me and I hope that I inspire them as well. It’s really more of a movement that many of us are a part of. I’m just someone speaking about it from my experience, hoping to encourage others to do the same.
You have certainly embraced your individuality and ran with it instead of conforming to the social norms of todayai??i??s artists. Would it have been easier for you to join the flow with everyone else instead of swimming against the currant? Has it been a rewarding experience? Challenging?
This is the highest compliment. Thank you. Would it have been easier? YES!!!! As rewarding? Absolutely not, and honestly I donai??i??t even think itai??i??s possible. Itai??i??s in my nature to make my own rules and march to the beat of my own drum. I just want to be myself. I want to make music that is honest and makes me feel something. Hopefully that resonates with others. I think it does, but if not, Iai??i??ll keep doing it anyway and just get like 20 Weiner Dogs and live off the grid on a little farm somewhere, lol… seriously tho 😉
