From Whitstable on the south-east coast of England comes Rachel Hutchings with her authentic and stylish vocal delivery of jazz standards. With a voice that has been compared to Billie Holiday, she simply has to be listened to. Rachel’s style and approach to well-turned jazz songs is alluring and distinctive, her tone melodic and mellow with a dash of pepper and salt. Her natural phrasing, clear diction and rhythmic swing pump new life into the old familiar.
