Minneapolis-based singer/songwriter Rachel Kurtz is lighting a bonfire with her new 13-song album of original soul, Americana, and blues tracks titled Love, Rachel Kurtz.
Love, Rachel Kurtz, follows in the footsteps of gospel-activist diva Mavis Staples, while contributing to the neo-soul revivalist movement spearheaded by like-minded artists Alabama Shakes, Adele, and Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings. This is the moment, and this is the music, that will introduce the power and heat of Rachel Kurtz’s voice to a whole new audience; a fire enough to be seen across the land whose roots music it draws from.
Rachel Kurtz found national acclaim raising awareness for world hunger, hurricane relief, and multi-cultural reconciliation - electrifying crowds in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome, New Orleans’ Superdome, Texas’ Alamo Dome, and hundreds of other concert venues from coast to coast.
This record is soaked with sexiness, loneliness, and fierce motherhood. Kurtz sings her heart out with an unflinchingly honest voice, and means every single word. Longtime fans of Kurtz will be delighted and surprised by this record. Love, Rachel Kurtz invites you in and lets you know you are not alone. The album grabs your hand and invites you to the dance floor from the first notes. “Lioness” is an anthem of womanhood and motherhood. The record closes with “Single Parenting” for anyone that understands the stark reality of raising children alone.
Preorder the album now, and mark your calendars for the Wednesday June 13th CD Release Party at the Icehouse in Minneapolis.
