Rachel Jeans Bio...
Rachel Jeans is a Singer/Songwriter, with a passion for performing. Growing up in a very musical family, she first performed on stage at the age of four and wrote her first song at the age of six.
She taught herself to play guitar at the age of 16 and is inspired by many genres of music, which can be heard throughout her original material. Rachel competed and took 1st place with her original material in competitions "Toronto's Rising Star" and "Open Mic Canada".
Throughout the years Rachel has performed internationally in countries such as Cuba, Mexico, Ireland, Scotland, and Costa Rica. She has performed at many benefit concerts throughout the years, giving back to organizations in need. Most recently, Rachel spear headed "Artists for Australia", a musical benefit concert that took place in 5 locations, across 4 provinces in Canada, raising just shy of $10,000 in proceeds. 100% of the proceeds were donated towards two non-profit organizations aiding in the welfare of the wildlife in Australia.
Rachel's passion for music shines through when she performs. Her dream has always been to travel the world, touching people's hearts through music, the universal language.
When Rachel is not performing, writing, recording, or working on her next musical endeavour, she can be found enjoying the great outdoors with her rescue dog.
