A pop vocalist with classical training, Rachel Zevita landed a spot as a finalist on American Idol. She then embarked on a world tour with Armed Forces Entertainment, going to Australia, Egypt, Turkey, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Korea, Guam, and Japan.
When she was not on tour, she wrote & recorded her double EP "The Echo Sessions, Vol. 1 & 2" in Los Angeles with producer/co-writer Blake Sennett (The Elected, Rilo Kiley) at the helm.
Volume 1 is a shot of radio-ready pop; fusing beautiful melodies, heartfelt lyrics, danceable beats, and rock-n-roll attitude. Volume 2 is darker, edgier, and more introspective with elements of hip-hop, jazz and alt-rock. You can get them both from the store page.
ZEVITA has always been a "singer, a songwriter and a rockstar," singing and writing music since she was 4 years old. She has performed since her early teens all over New York City, even singing on the subway, learning to give her all to audiences of ANY size. (For more info, visit the EXTENDED BIO/UPBRINGING.)
