Rachel Cross

Rachel Cross started her musical career in 1983 as a street musician in Paris, France. She has been playing guitar, writing songs, singing and recording ever since. Rachel was the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for the award-winning world beat band Big Village for eleven years. Rachel is known for her high-energy performances, positive vibe, and powerful voice. She has performed at countless venues, colleges, and festivals including The Kennedy Center, on board The Green Peace Warrior, and at the Mid-Atlantic conference for The National Organization of Women.
Rachel has received many awards including a Mid-Atlantic Song Contest award for her song "Sound of the Bullet", Song of the Week on MP3.COM for her song "Same Guy", and Best World Music Vocalist from the Washington Area Music Association in 1996, 1997,1999, & 2000. She has also been nominated for many awards including Best Contemporary Folk Female Vocalist in 2001.
She has been fortunate to share the stage with many luminaries including Shawn Colvin, The Neville Brothers, Los Lobos, political comedian Al Franken, and Jesse Jackson. Her debut solo CD, "Angels & Aliens, Monsters & Freaks" has just been released on Dreamy Eyes Records and is receiving airplay across the nation.
When not performing, Rachel is in high demand as a session vocalist. Her soulful vocals have been featured on many soundtracks including National Geographic´s "Tiger Sharks", "Babylon", and "Self-portrait", and the theme for the ITV Network. Rachel recently received her third grant to create and record original songs with eighty students from School-within-school at Peabody in Washington, DC. She has also written and recorded music with Henry Cross for six theatrical productions of The Bethesda Academy of Performing Arts.
