Raquel Rodriguez is a gifted musician at her core. Her presence is warm, powerful and inspiring, just like her sound. The Soul singer is in a lane of her own, as she draws inspiration from Prince, Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse and Bruno Mars, creating a smooth balance of 70's funk, 80's synths, and 90's R&B.
Her love of music began when she started piano and vocal lessons at Hamilton High School’s Music Academy. After which, Raquel attended the prestigious Thornton School of Music at USC, where she studied the Music Industry and Jazz Theory. It was here that Raquel polished her songwriting skills and solidified many of her now thriving musical relationships.
After college, Raquel's career really picked up, as she went on to sing back-up for well-known artists, such as Gwen Stefani and Anderson.Paak. She's opened for J. Cole, Snoop Dogg, Trombone Shorty, and Goapele. And she's collaborated with Nigel Hall and many others.
Raquel’s talent is truly unmatched. 2018 marked the release of her new EP, The 310 Pt. 2 and the end of her European tour. Her current single, “Mile High” has quickly gained popularity on Spotify and Apple Music. We've got our eye on this one, as we know there's a whole lot more in store for her in the near future!
