ABOUT

(Update-2 of the videos I tried to upload won’t play, but can be viewed directly on YouTube under Rachael Lee Lipson) I’ve been a singer, writer & artist since the age of 5. My mother was a professional jazz musician who started her own band, played bass guitar and gigged with well known jazz musicians from the Boston area. I sang with her band a few times as a teen, but pursued orher career paths. Because I have the capacity to find a commonality with any stranger, I also had a tendency to ask street musicians in Boston or Portland, ME if I could join them, and if they said ok, just sit down and sing with them for an hour at a time. I am very detail-oriented and have a semi-photographic memory for lyrics and melodies. Now in the start of my fourth decade, I’ve been yearning to reconnect with the creative side of myself. I learned to improvise and harmonize before the age of 10, and am a fairly strong Alto/Mezzo.
