I started playing guitar in 2015 and then started writing some stuff. This is my first EP and I'm pretty proud of it. All of these songs are stories about experiences I encountered in late high school and early college. I'm sorry most of them contain sad and angsty content. Growing up is cool, but weird and sometimes upsetting. I hope you take something away from this and I hope I make you feel something with my music. Thanks for paying attention to me c:


released May 17, 2016

Vocals & guitar: Rachel Rouwenhorst (me)

Recorded with the guitar of my lovely friend Andy in his cute lil plant filled sun room in Columbus, OH by my wonderful friend Wes Meadows (who also mixed and mastered this shizz.)

Much love and thanks to all my friends and family for encouraging me to pursue all of my musical endeavors and pushing me to perform live/record. Thank you especially to all my roommates & friends from Lincoln Tower's 18th floor for not killing me for practicing all the time, as well as always giving me positive feedback during this process.
