In its debut week, SHADOWS has achieved... • ARIA AUSTRALIAN ALBUM CHARTS #5 • ARIA ALBUM CHARTS #25 • AIR INDEPENDENT ALBUM CHART #3 • AMRAP REGIONAL SINGLES CHART #2 “What They Don’t Tell You” Rachael’s Single Co-Written With Josh Pyke.

Rachael Leahcar is an Australian singer/songwriter whose rich, emotive vocals and powerful performances have connected with audiences all over the world. She broke television records with her appearance on the first season of The Voice in 2012. 90% legally blind and an ambassador for the Royal Society for the Blind, Rachael strives to inspire others to achieve their dreams despite the many obstacles you can face in life. On the recording process, Rachael says, “I’m overjoyed to finally share this publicly after so many years of writing. On Shadows, you’ll discover a collection of memories, stories and pieces of me. I wrote most of them on my beloved piano or guitar, and recorded the vocals at my home studio provided by Greg and Ingrid (ma and pa). A smile worn in happiness, a tear fallen in sadness, a frenzy of notes from frustration or elation and a spattering of words from love or heartbreak. I write songs to connect with people and help them through each phase of life, as music has always helped me. Featuring snatches from various genres, I feel I have found my true voice, and I want to share it far and wide.” Shadows brilliantly showcases Rachael’s burgeoning songwriting talents, none more so than with the song What They Don’t Tell You; co-written with one of Australia’s most accomplished and decorated musicians, Josh Pyke.

3BA Bigshow host PT spoke with Rachael about life, touring and the new album shadows.
