Rachel Ries

Raised in South Dakota by Mennonite missionaries, singer/songwriter Rachel Ries spent her formative years immersed in an unusual mix of Congolese spirituals, Mennonite hymns, and the popular Carpenters tunes of the day. Now based in Vermont, Ries made her recording debut in 2005, releasing For You Only, a charming set of soulful acoustic country-inspired folk songs. Two years later, she worked with veteran engineer Kris Poulin in Chicago on her jazzy, self-produced follow-up, Without a Bird, released on her newly launched label SoDak Records. A split EP with folksinger Anaïs Mitchell called Country E.P. arrived in 2008 on Righteous Babe Records, after which Ries dedicated her time to touring with Mitchell, Bon Iver, and many other artists. Her involvement with the Chicago theater community led to a Chicago Arts Award in 2010 as she continued to expand her artistic endeavors. In 2012, she began recording her third LP, working with producer and Secretly Canadian recording artist David Vandervelde. Recorded in Chicago at the studio of late Wilco guitarist Jay Bennett and featuring a cast of well-respected guest players, Ghost of a Gardener was released in February 2014. ~ Timothy Monger

Rachel was my daughter's guitar teacher in Chicago a few years ago. She's an awesome person and her heart is definitely apparent in her music. So happy to see her here!

I was first introduced to Rachel Ries music when she opened for CD release party I attended in Buffalo, NY. She is an incredible musician with a striking voice; pure and angelic but not innocent in any way. Her music is well composed with guitar backings that are equal to her extraordinar y vocals. Lyrically Rachel discloses the inner dialogue inherent in human nature with sobering honesty. Incredible!

I first met Rachel in Gosgen, IN while she was in college, I guess. She's awesome. Im in California now, so I miss it when she comes to town!

Rachel works off-and-on at a coffee shop down the block from my apartment in Chicago. She's friends with Anais Mitchell, a singer-songw r i t e r who records on Ani DiFranco's "Righteous Babe Records," and they recently recorded a joint album that will be released on RBR...

Rachel's sound, for me, is country-folk - j a z z i s h , along the lines of early Erin McKeown or Sarah Harmer's collection of old-timey songs, "I'm a Mountain."

i am not sure about the rest of the album, but she sounds strikingly similar to early Jewel.
