Other Info
Rachelle is one of my favorite performers, songwriters, musicians, characters of the Big Apple. A true New Yorker. I'm going to paste her whole damn bio right here because I want you to know her.

Born in New York City, Rachelle Garniez is a performer, singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist.

Hailed by the New York Press as "one of the greatest songwriters of our time", described by the New Yorker as "a certified free spirit with a rich voice and a wild imagination", and featured in Paper magazine's annual "Beautiful People 2008" issue; Garniez’s adventures began as a street musician in Europe and a fixture in the art scene of 1980’s New York City.

Rachelle Garniez by SiggiRachelle formed her own band, The Fortunate Few, in 1997 and has since then released four CDs of original songs on her label, Real Cool Records (named in honor of author Chester Himes); while also participating in a variety of music ventures including performances and collaborations with Thomas Dolby, Sxip Shirey, Claywoman, the Marvin Sewell Group, Rufus Wainwright, Hazmat Modine and Jenny Scheinman to name a few. At the present time, she is the co-musical director of renowned musical theater troupe The Citizens Band.

Rachelle's songs are featured in celebrated animator Bill Plympton's first full-length film, "Idiots and Angels" (2008) and have been recorded and performed by Catherine Russell, Ingrid Lucia and the Flying Neutrinos, and The Citizens Band.

Rachelle is currently collaborating with performance artist extraordinaire Taylor Mac, composing music for his piece "The Lily's Revenge" which will premiere in October 2009; and is busy writing songs and music for the Franklin Stage Company's adaptation of L. Frank Baum's "American Fairy Tales", which she will be performing in Franklin, NY August 2009.
