She’s a straight-up storyteller with a voice to blow all others clean out of the water…20-year-old Scottish singer-songwriter Rachel Sermanni packs an almighty punch with her earthy folk melodies and dextrous fingerpicking.

Her hometown of Carrbridge - with its rugged mountain backdrop in the heart of the Highland skiing fields - is rife with creative potential and Rachel’s traditional folk lineage continues to pervade her work. But since upping sticks to Glasgow, her songs have also been shaped by new beginnings. “Jazz, folk, indie - all the spheres seem to meld together and there are no boundaries, which creates an incredibly healthy scene,” she says.

Rachel’s razor-sharp wit and natural affinity with any audience somehow belie her young age and have led to support slots with the likes of Elvis Costello, Ron Sexsmith and Michael Kiwanuka.
