Rachel Mac has been carefully honing her skills as a singer & songwriter since writing her first "Love song" at the grand old age of nine! Inspired by every day life, the people she meets, history, folklore, nature, the weather and most importantly, her muse and love, her steady stream of songs has flowed ever since.
Rachel has written songs for bands of many different genres ranging from progressive rock and blues through to ambient dance and power pop and she is also no stranger to musical theatre and operatic singing! Her extensive back catalogue of songs reflects many of these influences but it is lilting melodies, heart-felt lyrics and real life stories of folk music that have worked their way under her Celtic skin, stirring her soul and imagination to allow her to pen her most recent songs.
After many years performing with her long running band "Cyra Elia" in the North West & Wales, Rachel now performs all over the UK as a solo artist with frequent guest appearances from her younger brother, Greg MacDonalkd (affectionately known as "The G-Man").
In early 2011, Rachel swapped the familiar coastline of North Wales, where she grew up, for that of the chalky cliffs of East Sussex and she in now living near Brighton where she has teamed up with fellow songwriter, musician & producer Dean Van Jones at oscillate Recordings in order to write and record her first solo album.
