“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.
Her latest 6th album Flux on Memphis Industries produced by Marcus Hamblett (Villagers/Laura Marling) is a response to external and internal tides: the flow of life up-rooted; a protest against the flow of recent political history; a diary of the flow within the intimate space of home. Collaborators include multi-instrumentalist Emma Gatrill (Willie Mason / Matthew and the Atlas), drummer Rob Pemberton (Emily Barker / Low Chimes), bassist Jim Barr (Portishead) and vocalists Kate Stables and Rozi Plain (This is The Kit).
Flux follows Rachael’s highly acclaimed album We Resonate which came out on French label Talitres and Sweetdreams Press (Japan), and a string of releases on Broken Sound (UK), Lost Map (UK), Sweetdreams Press and Angel’s Egg (Japan). She has received wide support from DJs on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3 Late Junction, BBC radio 4, Xfm, France Musique on which she was invited for a 6 song session.
