Here's a little about me: I am from Chicago, growing up near Diversey and Sheffield. I could hear the Ravenswood El from my bedroom at night, along with the folks spilling out of bars. I have always been hearing music in my head, and have been singing for as long as I can remember. My first album of originals, called "Under the Sun," was released February 2016. The current lineup of my originals band, Rachel Drew & the Bitter Roots, is: Steve Dawson, Gerald Dowd, Dave Nelson, and the great Alton Smith. I also play songs I've written in the monthly Dowd & Drew residency at Friendly Tap with Larry Brown, Gerald Dowd, Dave Nelson, Josh Piet, and sometimes Scott Stevenson.
