“Rachael Dadd is one of the most talented, wise, prolific and important women of our times” -Kate Stables of This is the Kit
Living half her time as a traveling musician in Japan, witnessing how other people create things, connecting with other cultures and landscapes; all this is a furnace for innovative song writing. Contemporary folk multi-instrumentalist Rachael Dadd is on a strong path with so much interest and support from DJs, tastemakers, her contemporaries and key people in the music industry. She has been gaining the reputation as a pioneering and thought provoking artist unafraid to push the boundaries of folk and pop.
In 2016 her solo Piano and Projection show received an Emerging Excellence Award. She has toured this formation as well as full band and solo across venues and festivals in the UK, Europe, Australia and Asia.
Her countless festival performances include End Of the Road, Green Man, Glastonbury, Truck, Wilderness and so many more.
Rachael co-curated Bristols SHHH festival (a celebration of quiet & diverse music), instigated the group exhibition ‘DIY is all you need’ with fellow musicians and artists, and curated and hosted ‘Rachael Dadd and Friends’ at Kings Place, London.
In Japan she has written for some top names such as U A and Gontiti, and performed to an audience of 4000 at Tokyo’s famous NHK Hall.
Rachael puts great attention into the conceptual and visual through her music videos, album artwork, hand-made merchandise and exhibitions.
